The Xtra Flex system offers several advantages: Long life: no need to constantly replace materials that disintegrate with exposure to harsh job site conditions; Quick grade elevation adjustment; Positive end connection; Easy to set and strip: bolt-on steel stake pockets with easy grip locking knob.

Forming system expanded

The Xtra Flex forming system is now available for forming concrete 12 inches high.The original system was introduced in heights of four and six inches for forming the tight curves often encountered in constructing concrete walks, patios, curbs and decorative flatwork. Standard 10-foot lengths of the four-inch, six-inch and the new 12-inch are made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) to form tight radii from 36 inches to as small as nine inches. Compared to less durable and labour-intensive materials like Masonite, plywood and “bender board”, the Xtra Flex system offers several advantages: Long life: no need to constantly replace materials that disintegrate with exposure to harsh job site conditions; Quick grade elevation adjustment; Positive end connection; Easy to set and strip: bolt-on steel stake pockets with easy grip locking knob.

XTRA FLEX Radius forms

XTRA FLEX Radius forms are designed to easily shape extra tight radii (down to six inches) for walkways, patios, curbs and decorative flatwork. The system offers a long-lasting, “no nailing” alternative to forming radiuses with less durable and la-bour-intensive Masonite, plywood or bender board. These HDPE-constructed forms will not absorb water, rot or splinter, and feature easy setting and stripping. Features include fast “no tool” adjustment to the stringline, and for positive end connection, a steel sleeve eliminates labour-intensive splicing procedures.
