For complex concrete block-outs and concrete forms, EPS (expanded polystyrene) is often the best solution. For this bridge project in Redding, California the contractor needed 17 very complex round-to-oval, teardrop block-outs to form openings in the bridge walls. After evaluating the cost of EPS, wood and steel block-outs, EPS was the obvious choice. The block-out forms were produced from 1.8 lb density EPS and shipped to the jobsite ready to install. EPS is very lightweight making it a very easy product to work with onsite. These particular forms weighed under 20 pounds each.
Universal Foam Products ships from locations throughout the United States and Canada. We have provided complex concrete block-outs and form liners from coast to coast and have a patented system for attaching the EPS block-outs to a contractor’s straight forms, which reduces the cost of the forms and the installation time on site.
