Form Direct are the exclusive Australian agent for the Adjustable Kickers. These reusable form work braces are perfect for fast set up and pull down of timber and steel form boards on sloping sites or uneven ground. Adjustable Kickers are a cost effective option for tilt slab pours, bridge building and slab on ground applications. Using Adjustable Kickers saves you material and time when compared with conventional timber braced form construction. They are available in three standard sizes to suit various form board widths and are drilled for easy board positioning. Low maintenance is central to the design of these braces and just one of the reasons they are so popular! Rick Castle, a Queensland based concreting and formwork contractor has described the Adjustable Kicker as being “so versatile that anyone can use them. They save substantial amounts of labour every time we set up and strip a job. The saving on timber wastage alone easily outweighs the cost of the initial purchase. I recommend Adjustable Kickers to anyone who sets concrete forms.” The Adjustable Kicker replaces traditional wood bracing and saves you money because of its efficiency and ease of use. Ask yourself these three questions: How many thousands of dollars have you spent on lumber for form bracing? How much money do you waste having your employees cut up lumber for braces, discarding this lumber after only one or two uses, then cutting up more lumber for the next job? How would you like to save 30-60% in labor costs on your next job? The Adjustable Kicker eliminates these expensive, time-consuming tasks. No longer will you have to waste valuable time and money finding and cutting boards for bracing. And the tough, steel construction of the Adjustable Kicker can withstand up to a 2 ft. pour, making it perfect for jobs such as flyer tables for high-rise buildings, monolithic pours, bridge decks, slabs on grade and curbs. It works on all surfaces and can be attached to either wood or steel forms. When the job is done, it detaches and folds down into an easily storable size, or, for repetitive forming, you can leave it attached to the form and simply move it from pour to pour.
