Fast Form Foundations
Answering today's construction
and energy conservation
requirements, a product
developed to save energy - time -
A highly engineered expanded
polystyrene form used for
the on-site pouring of
concrete walls and slabs
monolithically. The form
remains in place after the
pour is complete and becomes
an integral part of the
structure it helps to support.
The design of Fast Form is
not aesthetic. It has been
designed from numerous
full-scale models made, inground
pours completed and
buildings erected upon those
designed forms. In short - an
engineered proven product.
Because fast form stays in
the ground, the savings start
the minute the installation
begins. Trench widths are
dug only 18"-24" in width
as compared to 4' for wood
forms. The backhoe comes
once, the form is set and
then backfilled. No form
stripping is required.
The concrete truck comes once as
well and no additional foundation
insulation is required. Combine all
this with 40% savings in concrete
when compared to a standard
8" wall and it's evident that
Fast Form saves money.
Fast Form enables the concrete to cure
under ideal conditions by retaining the
water and heat of hydration.
Fast Form insulates against cold to
facilitate winter pouring.
Fast Form eliminates the heat loss
through uninsulated slab edges.
Fast Form comes with prefabricated
corners and dovetail connections for
ease of installation.
Fast Forms are lightweight. An 8' long
section, 4' high, weighs less than 25
Certainly Fast Form does not answer
every foundation consideration.
Fast Forms must be handled somewhat
more gently than wood forms ever were
handled, but for all the disadvantages
there may be, there are more offsetting
