Dayton Superior adds High Capacity Brace to Tilt-Up Portfolio

Dayton Superior is adding the B18 Tilt Up Brace to the company’s tilt up line of product solutions. The newly launched B18 brace was independently tested for capacity at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus. The test results confirmed that the B18 brace is the only 52’ long tilt up brace with a Safe Working Load of 12,800 lbs., making it nearly 20% stronger than any competitive brace available in the tilt up construction industry.

The B18 brace is engineered for quick, easy alignment and bracing of tilt wall panels. It also allows for the use of taller tilt up panels while increasing efficiency and advancing the opportunities for innovative design.

“As the wall panels used in tilt up construction continue to get larger and taller, there is increased demand for longer and stronger braces,” explained Estella Matemu, Product Manager with Dayton Superior. “The B18 now leads the industry in high capacity. For the contractor, this reduces the number of braces and accessories required for a tilt up panel, resulting in a cost savings.”
