How the Zont Bracing System Works:
Zont Twist™ Bracket
The Zont Twist™ locks the 2x4 walers and strongbacks against the ICF wall to flatten the wall horizontally and vertically. The plastic cam is twisted counterclockwise to quickly lock the lumber, reducing the installation time by one half. The cam is designed so that any wall settlement will tighten the lumber against the wall.
The supports consist of a sheet metal attachment flange, 1/2" diameter threaded adjuster and an injection-molded plastic foot pad.
Zuckle™ Wall Aligner
Finally. A wall aligner specifically designed for ICF walls. Only 3.6 pounds, just half the weight of conventional turnbuckles. And fast adjustment with an electric drill.
