Stronger Corner Construction
A major advantage of using the E-BEAM & SUPER STUD system is the strength of the corners. Typically, the most time consuming and costly element of forming any structure will involve the corners. Any experienced crew can build an inside corner using lumber; however, they are generally not fabricated to be cycled along with the main wall forming gang panels. The outside corners are a more complicated situation. Ties are located far apart, and it becomes more difficult to secure the formwork within the wall thickness requiring a sturdy form to span from the nearest tie to the outside corner. EFCO has designed both an inside and outside corner solution that provides strength and eliminates the risk of costly blow-out situations. Furthermore, the corner can be cycled with the wall gang.

WHAT IS THE FORMWORK CORNER OPTIONS WITH EFCO E-BEAM® & SUPER STUD®?
E-BEAM Endcap & Combination Bias Corners (CBC)
These standard forms eliminate job-built fillers and/or take-up panels in the middle of the walls to easily form inside corners and pilasters.
Strong outside corners are secured with the E-BEAM outside corner tie plate connecting two E-BEAM® & SUPER STUD® wall gangs.
E-BEAM Endcap in combination with contractor-supplied 2 x 4 and plywood provides a second solution for inside corners. The E-BEAM Endcap is an ideal solution for assembling large gangs together forming a perfectly aligned joint.
