A.H. Harris Branch Spotlight – Charlotte, NC

by Martin Hennig

AH Harris & Sons, Inc. opened a Charlotte, North Carolina location in 2008. For the past 7 years we have been supplying concrete and masonry accessories in the area, but our unrivaled specialty is concrete forming and shoring. Located on five acres in Charlotte close to both I-85 and I-77 on West W.T. Harris Blvd, we are equipped to handle all of your needs in construction supplies, residential and commercial slabs, masonry wall construction and other building materials. Why is the Charlotte branch the premier supplier in the Carolinas for forming and shoring? Branch manager Mike and team currently have four product offerings of superior quality and diversity to choose from for your construction project. We have the Harris Ply hand set modular form with panel sizes as wide as 2’ and heights up to 8’. Our own signature product Harris 1500 is a lightweight clamp system that can be both set by hand and ganged together to do large placement pours. A contractor’s favorite, the Harris 1500 has 1500 pounds per square foot pour pressure which allows for 10’ of liquid head. Standard panels are 30” wide and 8’ tall but we also offer giant panels in 4’ and 8’ widths if your job requires heavier equipment. The added value of our clamp system is that it is located right here in Charlotte to allow a better response time for job starts and design changes. Form rental and maintenance is managed in-house and our dedicated team will help you stay on time and on budget. If you have a forming job with more than one floor, we offer the Hi-Load shoring system. We stock frames, beams and joists in a variety of sizes to give you the versatility your jobs require.

If Tilt-Up Construction is your specialty, you will be glad to know we stock Meadow Burke braces from Precast Braces to 32’ Super Braces with both 5’ and 10’ extensions. We also have panel inserts, bond breaker, SLIII lifting clutches and Panic Plates in our inventory. Two experienced on site detailers assist customers in form work/shoring design. All we require is an open account, a good set of drawings and a reliable contact. Having the detailers on site with the equipment allows us to not only design the job at the start, but gives us the ability to adapt when there are changes in scope, elevation or pour sequence during the job. When you combine our forming systems, on-site expertise, and five acres of equipment, you have the premier Forming and Shoring supplier for Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. No other distributer in the area is that versatile, knowledgeable and reliable. Click here to request a quote and here to fill out a credit application.
