FAQ’s

HOW MANY BOXES DO I NEED?

One box will be enough for approximately 200 linear feet.

HOW FAR DO I SPACE THEM OUT?

Space braces 4 feet apart when you are using a 5” to 6” slump (concrete to water mixture)
Space braces 5 feet apart when you are using a 4” to 5” slump (concrete to water mixture)
Space braces 6 feet apart when you are using less than 4” slump (concrete to water mixture)

The wood or steel stakes will provide additional support to the forms and set the height of your footing. Depending on the concrete slump (concrete to water mixture) you may need to add more stakes to support the forms. More water means more weight. Its recommended to use a stake near each AccuFooting™ brace.

WHAT IS THE EXACT WIDTH OF EACH OF THE FOOTING BRACES?

It is expected to use the AccuFooting Brace System during the building process. However, if you have to drop them in after the footing forms have been built and are in place, please note the H-Brace has up to a size variance of 1/2 inch smaller than the width of footing width dimensions that you may order.

There are three primary causes / reasons for the slightly reduced width size of each H-Brace:

  1. The width variance decrease is due to the brace shrinking during the cool down process after it’s been pulled from the injection mold.
  2. We designed a 3/16th inch reduced width of the footing brace, in order for the product to remain within the interior dimensions of the footing forms.
  3. Due to the swell of the concrete from variable slump, the tolerance between the interior wall of the footing form and the footing brace is pressed together. This spacing provides the footing system to flex and move while the concrete is pouring into the footing form.

WHAT SIZE OF REBAR DO I USE?

Consult your local building codes. Typically #4 or 1/2” rebar is specified. See enclosed concrete codes information sheet in each box.

WHAT ABOUT CORNERS?

Place one AccuFooting™ brace at each corner and lay out spacing approximately 4 feet to 6 feet apart.

DO I HAVE TO NAIL THE ACCUFOOTING™ BRACES?

It is an option, but not recommended. If you need to nail just tack the nail. It makes it easier to strip form boards.

HOW DO I STRIP THE ACCUFOOTING™ BRACE?

Pull up or hit the outside ear of the AccuFooting™ with a hammer to break tabs. Be sure to wear safety glasses.
