4 EASY STEPS

To Install Your Masterform Hobs

STEP 1 – SET THE LEGS

Mark the center line off the hob onto the formwork and align with the ‘V’ in the center of the hob leg base plate. screw fix legs onto either the ply or metal deck, ensuring all legs are rotated in the same direction. Legs should be spaced approx 1.2 – 1.5 metres apart, with a leg adjacent to each corner.

In situations where the bottom of the slab will be exposed we suggest fixing the legs onto our custom 25mm bar chairs. This will allow the concrete to flow under the plate, hiding it from view.

STEP 2 – FIX THE HOBS

Position hob over the legs and screw fix along the inner fold using the pre-drilled holes in the leg top plates as a guide.

We recommend using tie wire to further brace and secure the hobs as needed.

STEP 3 – CONNECT THE HOBS

For example, for a 90mm wide hob notch 90mm from the inner face of one of the hobs and attach to the adjacent hob with corner plates.

STEP 4 – CONCRETE POUR

fill the slab area directly below the hob first and then fill the hob taking care to ensure that the concrete is still wet to avoid cold jointing.

IMPORTANT: Equally distribute the flow of concrete to either side of the hob leg during the pour, ensuring an even pressure is maintained along its length to avoid the hob from twisting.
