B.E.P.TM Forming Systems Big Panel Rotator System Turns Heads at World of Concrete

Nominated for “Most Innovated Products” Contest

Industry experts are praising B.E.P.™ Forming Systems’ revolutionary Big Panel Rotator System for its innovative concept and functionality. This new technology promises to reduce labor and equipment costs for contractors, while bringing a new dimension of design capabilities to poured-wall construction. Recently nominated for Hanley Wood’s “Most Innovative Products” contest at World of Concrete 2003 in Las Vegas, NV, B.E.P.’s state-of-the-art wall forming system has already been awarded top honors in its category by its most critical panel of judges— its customers.

With its patent-pending technology the Big Panel Rotator System challenges conventional concrete construction methods and raises the bar for the concrete industry. The company’s all-aluminum concrete wall forming system for residential and commercial construction features an exclusive (full-rotation) pivot technology. Because of its unique ability to pivot 360 degrees, B.E.P’s Big Panel Rotator System transcends the costly limitations inherent in traditional concrete forming systems. “Fifteen to twenty years ago, the industry was looking for fast, lightweight hand-set forms. During the last five to ten years, cranes have taken the form industry by storm,” said Bill Esker, President of J.B. Esker & Sons, Teutopolis, IL. “Now the industry is ready to take a big leap forward with B.E.P.’s Big Panel crane-set forming systems.”

The Big Panel Rotator System was created by B.E.P. Forming Systems’ President and Founder Greg Peacock; a concrete contractor who envisioned improving business for others in his profession. The B.E.P. Big Panel Rotator System increases efficiency for contractors by reducing their labor and equipment costs. And because the system integrates seamlessly with a contractor’s existing equipment, they are able to extend the value and adaptability of their investment. “I have used other gang and crane-set systems, but B.E.P.’s Big Panel Rotator

System surpasses them all,” said Arie Van Wyk, President of Van Wyks, Inc., of Waldo, WI. “The company’s ability to customize the system for our specific needs enabled us to use our existing equipment. B.E.P. was the answer for us.”

The Big Panel Rotator System includes a line of products and accessories built for delivering superior on-the-job performance. Their new craneset system is highly adaptable to below- and above-grade, cast-in-place residential and commercial concrete projects, and features an innovative one-man lifting hook device. In fact, the Big Panel Rotator System hooks to any conventional aluminum, steel frame or locking wood system on the market today allowing for installation of foam, electrical boxes, ledges, beams and other additions. Other system features include:

• Heavy-rail systems with corner gussets and high penetration welding to a standard .125 inch (full 1/8″) thick facesheet or optional heavy-gauge .160 inch (3/16”) face-sheet to create the strongest big panel in the industry—engineered to handle 1,450 lbs. per sq. ft. loads, based on ACI pour ratings.

• Custom-ordering capability to any length or width, and designed to fit any standard hole pattern.

• Exceptionally strong, yet thin and lightweight, construction for easy transport and stacking.

B.E.P. Forming Systems is an aluminum forming company like no other. This family-owned business is committed to providing residential and commercial contractors with technological innovations in form design and accessories. The company’s goal is to help contractors maximize profits by saving time and reducing labor and equipment costs. The B.E.P.
