Adjustable Bolt-Box Precast Form System
The Adjustable Bolt-Box Precast Form System shown in the pictures consists of a bolt-together outer jacket, collapsible bolt-together Inner Core, top and bottom ties and Corner Keys. This versatile system, with collapsible core and adjustable jacket panels, is economical and allows for many different square and rectangular box form designs, while giving the producer the ability to adjust the wall thickness and the length and width of the element.
