REDI-RADIUS Forming System
  • Tie Bearings

    EFCO’s Tie Bearing is a fixed integral part, permanently welded into the REDI-RADIUS panel. No battered washer required.

  • Bottom Yokes

    Use an EFCO standard bottom yoke with the adjusting screw to pull the forms tight against a wood bulkhead.

  • One Size EFCO Strap

    EFCO's one size REDI-RADIUS strap fits all diameters. Loosen the bolts and pull the panel to the shaping fixture to fit the radius required, then retighten the bolts.

  • Lifting Eyes

    Lifting Eyes bolt directly onto the form and allow cycling of equipment by crane. The LE-1 Lifting Eye has a lifting capacity of 6,000 lb. The LE-5 Lifting Eye has a lifting capacity of 2,000 lb.

  • Telescoping Push-Pull Pipe Brace

    The Telescoping Push-Pull Pipe Brace is use for easy alignment and plumbing the form setup. The EFCO Pipe Brace Shoe is used to securely hold the setup down and is designed to give easy access to the anchoring bolt.

  • Pour Window

    The EFCO Pour Window adjusts to the radius of the form automatically.

  • EFCO Rugged Taper Tie

    The high capacity Rugged Taper Tie, with a 30,000 lb. per tie working load, you can use fewer ties per square foot of form surface. Each Rugged Taper Tie only has three parts to handle and also fewer ties per square foot of concrete surface. This results in substantial labor savings with every tie placed and removed and fewer tie holes to fill and patch. In addition, the Rugged Taper Tie has no consumable parts.

  • Scaffold Brackets

    Attach to the form for quick installation. Used in conjunction with contractor's scaffold planks, handrails, and toe boards, they provide a safe work scaffold for easy access to form hardware and for pouring operations. Timber or Pipe handrails can be used.

Adjustable Formwork for Circular and Curved Walls

Circular and curved concrete walls, tanks and arches are easy to form with the EFCO REDI-RADIUS® forming system. When multiple diameters are required for a project, EFCO’s REDI-RADIUS® system can be adjusted to any radius with very little labor required. Shaping tables, either convex or concave, are used to adjust REDI-RADIUS® panels.

Shaping Panels

For extra ease-of-use, REDI-RADIUS® panels can also be pre-shaped to required specifications at EFCO’s warehouse and then shipped to your job site. You may also shape them on your job site. The 6 1/2″ heavy-duty flange on REDI-RADIUS® form panels allows you to assemble panels into large rigid gang sections without stiff-backs, aligners or walers.


  • The 6 1/2″ deep panel
  • Fixture built; excellent panel joint alignment
  • Shaping forms to radius
  • High-strength form set-up
  • No vertical or horizontal walers or aligners required
  • Ties may be placed two feet off of the concrete footing

Waterstops are no problem when you cantilever the REDI-RADIUS® Form. The 2′-0″ rib REDI-RADIUS® form can be used in a cantilevered configuration on a radius wall to avoid problems with ties interfering with waterstops or any other bottom of the wall obstructions. The 2′-0″ rib form can also cantilever at the top of the form set-up to avoid any obstruction or obstacles encountered at the top of a radius wall set-up.

 EFCO can provide a special all-steel trough soffit panel for round tank troughs to conform to your required diameter. This form is built with 4″ deep ribs located on 12″ centers. Flanges are made of 3/16″ material for added strength and all flange holes are slotted for easy set-up. This trough soffit form is particularly advantageous where you have several trough tanks with the same diameter. REDI-RADIUS® starter forms make it possible for you to finish the concrete at the bottom of a trough, or the slab below a vertical wall.

The duration of time between placing concrete and removing/stripping formwork and shoring depends on a variety of factors, but it is ultimately based on age criteria and the minimum concrete strength determined by the project engineer/architect (reference ACI 347-R14; 5.7.1). Example factors that affect concrete strength include methods of cure, construction sequence, and project schedule. Based on the various criteria established by the project engineer/architect, the removing/stripping time can range from 12 hours to 28 days. The removing/stripping time can often be increased when supplemental concrete supports are used.  Examples would include EFCO’s Box Culvert Roof Support System that temporarily supports the top slab of a box culvert while the forms are cycled ahead to the next pour.  Another example would be the EFCO Deck shoring system which includes a “drophead” feature that enables contractors to strip joists and stringers early while the posts continue to support the recently placed slab.

When a project and or an engineer’s specifications require pour window access to a form set-up, EFCO’s REDI-RADIUS® forming system has the answer. The windows are hinged for easy access, saving time and labor. Each window is approximately 2′ square and is infinitely adjustable to match the radius of the REDI-RADIUS® form set-up.
