How did Spider Tie come about?
Spider Tie was conceived out of a need for builders to be able to form a concrete wall easily and quickly. The Founder, Greg McDonagh has over 30 years experience building homes found it very frustrating to have to wait for a foundation contractor to fit him in to their busy schedules. Many times an excavated hole would sit for two or three weeks before the foundation walls could be formed and poured. This got him thinking and experimenting with different ideas. With so many years experience as a carpenter framing homes he decided to take the same approach to forming a concrete wall. After a lot of trial and error he ended up with the Spider Tie concrete wall forming system. The Spider Ties simply function like a 2×4 studs, providing a frame to screw your plywood to. A product developed by an experienced builder.
Spider Tie now offers trades men an easier way to construct a concrete wall. You no longer are at the mercy of your sub-contractors busy schedule. Since no expensive forms are required you can easily form these walls yourself. Less labor is required as well because the heaviest part of this system is a single sheet of plywood. The Spider Tie system is simple to explain. It creates a temporary frame work by which you simply fasten your plywood to using a recommended coarse thread screw. Very similar to fastening drywall to wooden studs. This framework also holds your rebar perfectly in place every time without having to use tie wire.
Curved walls and Swimming pools
There are other wonderful advantages to using Spider Tie as well. With Spider Tie you now can form curved walls in a fraction of the time. Serpentine shaped walls, tight radius walls, really the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. Spider Tie was designed for swimming pool construction. Any shape and size pool can now be built for a fraction of the cost of Gunite and Shotcrete.
