RE: cardboard forms

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We've used carton forms for years in Colorado and Texas.  They are quite 
common there.   We're doing a project in Dallas right now that has a 
structural slab at grade on 12" carton forms because of swelling clay. 
 I've heard that these cannot be used in California because of the 
cellulose composition.

>Does any body have a tel.# for a supplier of cardboard forms that allow
soil expansion under a slab/ footing, also any feedback about this system
would be greatly appreciated. <

Try SureVoid Products, Inc, 800-458-5444; 303-762-0324; Englewood, CO.

I have used them on several projects - haven't heard of any problems with
them.
