Steel, aluminum, and wood braces are all used for ICF construction. Re-usable turnbuckle systems are convenient, simple, and easy-to-use. Most include scaffolding and guard rails, and offer solutions for bracing tall walls as well.
Giraffe Bracing has positioned itself to be the leader in design, manufacturing and distribution of ICF bracing and components for the 21st century. Their distribution method allows retailers to offer the best price by cutting down on costly shipping fees.
With five warehousing locations and over a hundred retailers across the country, Giraffe Bracing is the logical choice. A specially designed rack holds 24 sets of bracing and has a spot for everything. Which means at a glance, you know for sure that every component is accounted for. The internal zinc-plated turnbuckles means no thread cleanup is required… Ever.
Giraffe Insulated Concrete Form Bracing allows you to build walls 10’, 15’ and 20’ high. Giraffe Bracing is the highest quality bracing on the market and can also be used for vertical shoring applications.
You can try the bracing first before you buy by renting from a retailer, or call us to arrange leasing. You’ll soon discover why Giraffe is “standing tall in a concrete jungle”.
The Hilltop ICF Scaffolding and Bracing system made by Hilltop Manufacturing is an outstanding choice for all ICF contractors. The lightweight aluminum strongbacks makes transport and setup easy.
The adjustable turnbuckle has no threads at the top of the brace. That means no concrete buildup on the threads, and trouble-free wall alignment. Recently Hilltop has introduced a new extra-heavy-duty strongback for the taller wall systems. The system comes with a removable handrail support, and is available in all standard height (8’, 9’, 10’, or 12’). Tall wall and custom heights are available.
The braces are compatible with all major brands of insulated concrete forms. Pricing and additional information is available at the phone and website listed below.
Mono-Brace is a self-contained, fully adjustable bracing system for ICF contractors.
Like other metal bracing systems, the Mono-Brace features turnbuckle adjustment for precise control of the wall and built-in platform and railing supports to make stacking and pouring easier.
Unlike the others, however, Mono-Brace uses a patented “Foldaway” system that allows the entire brace—including railing supports and kicker—to fold into a single streamlined unit. All parts are attached to the frame so nothing gets lost during set-up, takedown, or transportation. That means no sorting or assembly is required on the jobsite, no delays due to missing parts, and no awkward, bulky parts to haul from one jobsite to
The standard Mono-Brace attaches easily to regular buck scaffolding for heights exceeding 12 ft. Alternately, the optional High Wall System lets contractors pour walls up to 24 ft. with a single bracing setup.
