Precast, prestressed concrete is a highly engineered, complex product that requires a precision-fabricated, high-quality, durable formwork.
That’s why, when The Shockey Precast Group needed to cast a unique double tee product, they called on Hamilton Form Company.
The “Jumbo Tee” has sixty inch stems with a highly stressed bulb configuration at the stem bottoms. Hamilton Form built the self-stressing formwork in sections for both shipping and stripping considerations. The stems have minimal draft requiring the sideforms to be pull back for stripping. The 118-foot long, twelve foot wide product is casting efficiently and strips easily, keeping productivity high and delivery on time.
