Product Applications

Our Multi-Directional insert was originally designed and primarily thought of as a two-way motion sensitive precast cladding insert. However, over the years, designers have found numerous applications in which our inserts have been the perfect solution.


In addition to a concrete panel or masonry insert, it can be installed in structures for lateral support of precast, masonry, glass curtain walls, pipe hangers and other attachments to cast in place concrete.
