What began as a casual conversation at a
trade show, about the value of Max-A-Form
in precast operations, ultimately ended
with a rental of $140K of Max-A-Form and
What sparked that conversation was an
explanation of why Symons would have a
Max-A-Form display at the Manufactured
Concrete Products Exposition. Among the
curious was John Danforth, Account Manager
with CMC Construction Services in Denver,
a Symons Distributor. As with most visitors,
his reaction was, “Why show a bridge form
at a precast show?”.
The 4" thick concrete panels are poured
after 8" square ceramic tiles are placed in a
special form liner. These diverse stages of
treatment on a sloping casting slab required
the table heights to be ergonomically level,
and Symons Soldier with the Symons Soldier
Shore Jack were the perfect choices for the
adjustable table support.
Although Max-A-Form is generally considered
a “bridge” form, its application in
other forming operations should never be
overlooked, especially in the precast industry.
Precasters are attracted not only to
the attributes of Max-A-Form and Symons
Soldier equipment, but they also appreciate
the option to rent them as needed.
