 Doka and Symons Concrete Forms

The Doka Frami Xlife System:

Slashes handset labor costs
Thanks to lightning fast assembly

This is how it is accomplished

  • 80% fewer connections with only 3 clamps per 9ft. panel
  • 75% fewer ties with only two ties for a 9ft. high pour, up to 13.5sq.ft. per tie
  • Uses the lightest fastest clamp – only 2.6 lbs. and it goes on with one hand
  • No wood walers are required

Labor cost cutting continued
Savings in the details

Look at the full range

  • Hinged and adjustable pilaster forms make pilasters a snap
  • The Framax Stripping corner attaches and allows the fastest strip possible for cores
  • Fillers are available in 6″ increments plus 2″, 1 ½” and 1″ steel fillers
  • Columns are formed with universal panels up to 36″ – only one panel size for the whole job
  • Eliminate various required filler sizes and saves time and labor in storing, sorting and finding specific width panels

More labor cost cutting

  • Lifting core units with one crane pick
  • Cover 100% of the jobsite with one system
