Is Lift & Brace Engineering required?

Can i just purchase lift and brace inserts and place them where i think they need to go in a tilt-up panel? The answer is no. Tilt-up is an engineered system with safe working loads established by OSHA and the Tilt-up Concrete Association. CMC Construction Services has an in-house engineering staff that designs the lift and brace systems for panels using a proprietary tilt-up design program. We also have registered professional engineers on staff which meets the requirements on projects that specify the tilt-up design be performed under the supervision of a registered P.E.

Importance of Bond Breaker

Is a bondbreaker required when casting tilt-up materials? Bondbreaker is one of the most critical materials used on a tilt-up project. As the name suggest, the bondbreaker will form a break between tilt-up panel and casting slab. Use a quality bondbreaker that provides a clean release from the casting slabe and leaves a clean uniform appearnace on the face of the panel. Always follow the manufactures recommendations.
