Here at LECO, we take a lot of pride in the quality of our aluminum concrete forming systems. We try to deliver products our customers can trust, and when a chance comes to improve our product, we take it.
Since 4043 wets and flows better than 5356, some would argue that we’re giving ourselves a tougher time during the manufacturing process, but for the sake of our clients, we’re gladly taking on the challenge. From what we’ve observed, by taking advantage of 5356 welding wire’s higher ductility and shearing strength, our products are now more durable then they have ever been.
When forming our decision to use 5356 over 4043, we weighed production concerns against client benefits, and surmised that our goal should be to save you the two things that are most important to any contractor: time and money.
On the subject of time, we know that improved construction material durability can reduce construction delays, which contractors sometimes pay out of pocket to cover. Delays in construction are quite common, however, that doesn’t mean we can stand idly by when we find an opportunity to improve our product to minimize these delays. With a little tweak in our product, our concrete forms now last longer—up to 2,000 pours—and are more reliable so you can stay ahead of construction schedules and impress your clients.
On the other hand, the increased durability of our forms will help you save money on purchasing them as well. More forms lasting longer means that you can spend less money on procuring our forms on a much more regular basis, and focus more on creating the high quality work that clients love.
Of course, we haven’t left ourselves entirely out of the picture. We know that by living up to our simple and honest mission statement, “We treat our customers fair, we do what we say we’re going to do, and we always give more than the customer expects,” we benefit ourselves in the form of repeat business from you. Whether it’s for high-quality job supplies or durable, reusable concrete wall forms for sale, we want to be a brand you can trust no matter how complex your job requirements may be.
