QUICK HEADERS are secured at both sides of an opening with a steel tab or tray. Their engineered design has been patented and tested in the field for over six years without failure. Post shores (see spec sheets under PRODUCTS) are mandatory and required for every 6 feet of length, thereby eliminating the possibility of movement or failure. The 6″ laying surface also contributes to a more stable surface for the setting block.
When using QUICK HEADERS and post shores, there is no more need for the construction tools required to build wood bucks, thereby reducing the risk of injury, theft, and loss.
THE BENEFITS OF QUICK HEADERS VS. WOOD BUCKS
NEVER BUILD A WOOD BUCK AGAIN!
With how busy a mason or General Contractors’ schedule is, it’s not surprising how many have never taken the time to consider the true cost of building wood bucks. Building wood bucks is basically a sub-project within a larger project and as skilled labor, masons are trained to set blocks rather than build bucks. Historically the GC provided carpenters to build the shoring, however here is a clear shift these days to less self-performance on the part of the GC
The key was to figure out how to turn an unwanted responsibility into a very simple and profitable aspect of the masonry trade, taking into consideration environmental sensitivity and efficiencies. This is how Quick Headers was born.
OWNING QUICK HEADERS VS. BUILDING WOOD BUCKS
Check out the following chart to see how quickly the cost of a Quick Header covers the cost of building a wood buck. In nearly all sizes, after building two wood bucks, the cost of a Quick Header has been paid for it. Then consider, Quick Headers will carry on for 20 more years, making every other opening basically paid for! Quick Headers are the best bucking thing you’ve ever seen!
SIMPLE SOLUTION BY QUICK HEADERS
Width x Height
Quick headers can expand to virtually any length with a Quick Connect. Props can reach up to 39′ in height.
Radius Wall Construction
Quick Headers wider laying surface allows for use in radius wall construction.
Foam shapes placed on the top of a Quick Header to create arched windows
Job Site Access
Quick Headers can be strategically placed further apart after the first few days of cure time in order to allow heavy equipment access through openings
10″to 14″ Wide Block
Quick Headers can be “sintered” together in order to provide a wider setting platform for 10″ to14″ wide CMU block
MID Block Insertions
By cutting a slot into the block at mid-height, a Quick Headers tab can be quickly inserted into the side for a clean finish
