Efficient Forming Products

The characteristics of RedForm™ LVL and RedForm™ I-joists make them ideal for working in concrete forming applications. With many of the natural inconsistencies found in wood like knots, splits and wane removed during the manufacturing process, reliable engineered RedForm™ LVL and I-joist forms stand up to multiple reuses. You’ll find all the reliable, innovative products that you’ve been using, and you’ll work with a single-source, service-oriented supplier.
