When forming below grade
structures like a pile
cap, Stay-Form can save a considerable amount
of labor. You have no labor for stripping forms.
If rebar or metal is used for
bracing, it stays in
(Wood bracing has to be removed.)
Some contractors backfill around the
prior to the pour therefore
they minimize bracing.
Contractors can cut the V ribs in
bend the sheets to any shape
During the concrete pour any
water in the form will run out of
the Stay-Form as it is displaced
by the concrete (no pumping it out).
Concrete finish is not a concern
since backfill or a slab-on-grade
concrete pour is a typical design
with a pile cap foundation.
