Pacific Woodtech’s concrete forming I-joists (CFIs) are made with a purpose—safety and quality first. Because the loads on concrete forming projects are often 3 to 4 times the magnitude of residential projects, there are important distinctions between a CFI and a “stock residential” I-joist. For example, the ‘pre-punched’ knockouts found in residential I-joists, which can cause weakness, have been eliminated to ensure a safe workplace.
Exposure to the environment is also a very important factor to consider, and concrete forming products are subject to high moisture levels which must be accounted for in the design.
Pacific Woodtech understands these risks and stands behind all of its concrete forming products, with a full Manufacturer’s Warranty, for this use. No other residential manufacturer can make that claim. Ask for yourself!
