Anyone Know About Efco Hand-e-forms?


I bought a stack of them for cheap recently.

I figured I could just use bolts to put them together, but I'm sure they have special hardware like wedge pins for the Symons.

I can't seem to find any info on them online.

They are solid steel panels with double holes on each edge.

I would try contacting EFCO directly. We've used their girder and shoring systems but never their hand set forms.

make sure you use coil nut or efco bolts for the bolt together. Standard bolts don't fair well with concrete

I ended up using plain old grade 5, worked great.

The only reason I bought them is to make doing knee walls and curbs easier, I don't intend on running them higher than 2 ft or so.

I still want to get a few pallets of Symon panels for full sized walls, but I don't get into that very much, so I haven't had a need for to own any yet.
