Back to Categories For Rent: Jahn “A” Brackets

Jahn “A” Brackets

The Jahn “A” Brackets can be utilized to hold a single horizontal wale or a single vertical stud with any type of wall form; round, curved, battered, beam and/or columns.

This bracket can be installed before or after the wales have been positioned. The slots in the bracket allow it to slip over the snap tie end without laborious threading through holes. When properly installed, the A-81 bracket will not loosen from internal vibration of the concrete. Pressure from the bracket is against the 2 × 4 instead of the plywood.

Used with 4-3/4” (short-end) snap ties, is easy to install and strip, requires no nailing and is very fast.

Note: Sharecost’s rental forming system does NOT use Jahn Brackets – it uses tie bar and Quick Strip ties.

Rental Rates
  • 7 DAY: $0.30
  • 14 DAY: $0.45
  • 28 DAY: $0.60
