ICF CORNER BRACKET
The company’s new corner form with patent-pending corner bracket features a full-height, double-H bridging design said by product developers to add strength and furring to insulating concrete form system corners. Block performance will be enhanced, they add, as the system provides strength during concrete pours and maximum corner attachment flexibility.
Additionally, the double-H construction allows block to be cut in half horizontally while maintaining strong corner reinforcement in each section. Thus, contractors can reduce waste by using both block halves. Produced initially at plants in Rockford, Minn., and Nixa, Mo., the corner forms with double-H corner bracket will be available from all Reward plants by fall 2007. Reward Wall Systems
