The all-steel Symons Flex-Form system provides strength and flexibility.  Flex-Form has integral 4" deep vertical stiffeners with 3/16" steel skin plate to provide up to a 1,200 PSF system.  Flex-Form adapts to any  radius five feet and above.

Benefits of Flex Form

  • Steel ribs set the radius and bolt to the top and bottom of flexible panels that secure the form in the required radius
  • Panels conform to the radius of the ribs assuring the correct radius
  • By substituting a straight rib, Flex-Form can be used for straight walls when needed
  • No “chording” effect in the poured concrete surface
  • The Flex Form system produces smooth concrete surfaces that require minimal finishing labor
  • No expensive templates to build, no floppy panels to handle and no bolts to torque
The Symons Handset Steel-Ply forming system is a pre-engineered, factory-built, reusable concrete forming system that has more productive and economic  benefits compare to job-built plywood formwork or other forming methods. It’s useful in many handset or gang form applications for commercial or residential structures. This system can form walls in most any shape or size, and it saves time with the simple set-up and strip-down process. There is no measuring, sawing, drilling, or nailing required. Minimal training is needed since it has no top or bottom, left or right, and can be used vertically or horizontally. 

The 10K Frame Shoring System is engineered for maximum strength, labor productivity and reuse capabilities. Most components are available in a wide range of sizes, light enough to be carried by one person and extremely durable, providing long service life.

Benefits of 10K Frame Shoring 

  • Frame heights of 3’, 4’, 5’, and 6’ available in both 2’ and 4’ widths
  • Supports loads of 10K per leg/20K per frame
  • Double-hole cross braces provide versatility with fewer parts
  • Screw jacks allow for a wide range of vertical adjustment
  • Assembled with either W8x10 steel stringers or 7-1/2” aluminum stringers
  • Accessories include post shores, aluminum joists and adjustable horizontal shores
  • Can be adapted for virtually any configuration

Alshor Plus is the next generation in proven aluminum shoring systems. Alshor maintains loading of up to 21.6 kips/leg, along with labor-saving de-tails enabling shoring operations to be carried out with increased safety, im-proved on-site versatility and greater cost effectiveness.

Benefits of Alshor Plus

  • Fully integrated system that can be readily combined with standard alumi-num joists and stringers to provide effective and cost competitive support for formwork
  • Simple, single action connects and secures all four ledger frame tabs, mak-ing Alshor Plus the quickest system to erect
  • Increased jack extension range for greater on-site flexibility
  • Increased load capacity, reducing support equipment and improving cycle times, allowing fast erection and easy in-place modification, reducing site delays and construction costs 
  • Variable brace frame position allows greater economy for both high- and low-level support
  • Additional safety features such as Ledger Frame pockets enable the use of additional handrails
CMC Construction Services also works with numerous other light and heavy duty shoring systems. 

MevaLite Formwork system is a modular, handset clamp system that offers con-tractors a high-tech, low-weight solution for greater flexibility and cost savings. The economic advantages are evident in areas that are conventionally formed using traditional timber and plywood such as strip footings, foundation slabs, light shafts, various beams, landings and drain shafts.  A complete formwork set, including accessories weighs, about 10 lbs./sq.ft.

Benefits of MevaLite

  • A true handset system with no crane required
  • Provides a sturdy, high load capacity of 1,350 psf 
  • Panels are available in four heights: 9’, 6’, 4’, 3’
  • Fewer parts, less inventory compared to traditional formwork systems
  • Symmetric panels and tie holes 
  • No top or bottom to the panels
  • Panels can be constructed horizontally or vertically

The Steel-Ply Formwork System is a pre-engineered, reusable concrete forming system. It can be used in handset or gang form applications, for commercial or residential structures. This system can form walls of almost any shape or size, with accessories for special structures and details. It offers the benefit of in-creased productivity and cost saving compared to job-built plywood formwork.

Benefits of Steel-Ply

  • 1000 psf allowable pressure
  • 1/2” HDO plywood has a concrete appearance
  • No special tools are required; a carpenter’s hammer is the only tool needed
  • The same form can be handset or gang formed
  • Wedge bolts is the only necessary connecting hardware
  • Made in the USA
CMC Construction Services also works with Meva Imperial, Meva STB Support Frame and Max-a-Form Formwork Systems.
