Prefab Steel Formwork Systems
halve your work time and cut costs by 50% with the smart hob system
Complete your floors faster with an easier and smarter alternative to conventionally forming up timber hobs.
Cold formed steel hobs are manufactured to your site specifications, delivered to site, fixed to the slab and filled with concrete. Hobs are then tanked or sealed as required.
Remove the time and labour in waiting for concrete to set before returning to strip the timber ply, remove nails and patch hobs.
The SBS Smart Hob system is a registered design and has been consistently used for over 15 years in the Australian concrete formwork industry.
How it works
Pin the hob frames to the concrete by using washered drive pins. These are fired in by a ramset gun or similar
