The PS•3000 Waffle Grid Form
represents the most cost-effective engineered insulated concrete wall system on
the market. With a 4-hour fire rating and a performance record of 27 years, this proven – and improved – technology
will meet the needs of almost any project. Available in 6”, 8”, and 10” sizes
with 45° and 90° corners.
The strength of concrete posts, connected with 2-1/2" solid concrete webs on the 6" and 8" forms and 3-1/2" solid concrete webs on the 10" forms,
provides extraordinary structural performance with minimal material. With the
same 4-hour fire rating as all other PolySteel forms, the PS•3000 can be used in
any commercial or residential application – all while using 25% less concrete
than a comparable flat wall form.
Ease of Use The
new PS•3000 series tongue-and-groove design makes this form reversible
and easy to install on the job site. The markings on each side of the recessed
attachment studs provide an easy guide for proper alignment of both the studs
and the concrete
cores. The 1-1/2” width of each stud provides a generous surface area for mechanically securing any
type of wall covering desired. The recessed attachment stud also allows for easy
application of synthetic stuccos without any additional preparation work.
The Strength of Steel
The patented PolySteel tie provides the strength, fire resistance, and
dimensional stability that is the hallmark of the PolySteel name.
Seismic Advantages With
the recent reclassification of, and heightened concerns over, the nation’s
seismic zones, the reduced mass of a wall constructed with the PS•3000
offers a distinct advantage over traditional flat wall designs. With 25% less concrete
than a standard concrete wall,
this engineered concrete design can provide all of the structural performance
your project needs with higher efficiency, and greater safety.
