Most reusuable metal beam pockets are made by bending and welding. This often creates rough, uneven edges and surfaces which get locked into the concrete and make stripping a matter of hammering, chiseling, and prying. We thought there was a better way to make a beam pocket, so we created a pocket that is seamlessly formed from a single sheet of steel, with no welding at all.

The result is a beam pocket which strips effortlessly out of the concrete, time after time. In addition, we've designed an easy alignment feature (see above diagrams) that speeds installation. A single reference nail locates the pocket in the desired location on the form panel.

Nesting design for compact storage.

As if all of that wasn't enough, we made our beam pockets nest inside each other so a whole job's worth sits neatly in a space no bigger than a bucket. We like to think of everything...
