Construction Foundation

Construction Foundation

In the ever-evolving landscape of construction, the quest for eco-friendly alternatives has led to groundbreaking innovations in foundation technologies. Two standout solutions, Fastfoot® and Form-A-Drain Plus, are revolutionizing the way we approach concrete footing forms and basement applications.

Fastfoot®: An Eco-Friendly Concrete Forming Marvel

Crafted from high-density polyethylene fabric, Fastfoot® is a game-changer in the construction industry. Serving as a sustainable alternative to traditional lumber and plywood for concrete footing forms, Fastfoot® boasts an impressive environmental footprint. A single 100-foot roll of Fastfoot® produces the equivalent concrete output as 1,500 pounds of lumber, making it a cost-effective and eco-conscious choice.

Cost-Effective Alternative

Fastfoot® not only contributes to environmental conservation but also proves to be a cost-effective solution. The reduction in lumber usage translates to significant cost savings, making it an attractive option for budget-conscious projects.

Concrete Damage Prevention

Fastfoot® provides a protective barrier between the soil and the freshly poured concrete, preventing damage caused by rocks, roots, or other debris. This not only ensures the longevity of the concrete but also minimizes the need for repairs and maintenance.

Adaptable to Uneven Terrain and Rock

One of the standout features of Fastfoot® is its adaptability to uneven terrain and rocky conditions. The flexibility of the high-density polyethylene fabric allows for easy maneuvering around obstacles, ensuring a smooth and efficient installation process.

Ideal for Stepped Footings

Fastfoot® excels in projects that require stepped footings, providing a seamless solution for varying foundation heights. Its versatility in design makes it an ideal choice for a wide range of construction scenarios.

Suitable for Deep Footings

For projects requiring deep footings, Fastfoot® rises to the challenge. Its robust construction and flexibility make it suitable for applications where traditional forms might fall short.

Moisture and Contamination Prevention

Fastfoot® acts as a reliable barrier against moisture and contaminants from the ground. This protective layer enhances the overall quality of the concrete and contributes to the structural integrity of the foundation.

Enhanced Concrete Strength

The use of Fastfoot® goes beyond environmental and cost benefits – it actively contributes to enhanced concrete strength. By minimizing potential damage during the pouring process, Fastfoot® ensures that the foundation achieves optimal strength and durability.

Eco-Friendly Choice

In a world increasingly focused on sustainability, Fastfoot® stands out as an eco-friendly choice. Its reduced reliance on lumber aligns with the principles of responsible construction, making it a preferred option for environmentally conscious builders.

Form-A-Drain Plus: A Dual-Purpose Solution for Basement Applications

Specifically designed for basement applications, Form-A-Drain Plus introduces a dual-purpose approach to foundation footing forms. This innovative system not only serves as a permanent form for concrete pouring but also functions as a foundation drainage system and radon collection solution.

Platon Waterproofing Excellence

Complementing the Form-A-Drain® system, Platon takes waterproofing to the next level. Featuring a distinctive double-dimpled design, Platon effectively separates water from the foundation wall and bridges foundation cracks permanently. This not only thwarts the infiltration of moisture into the home's basement but also creates a durable barrier against potential leaks.

Air Gap Technology

The high-density polyethylene (HDPE) membrane of Platon creates an air gap, allowing for crucial air circulation and facilitating moisture drainage. By keeping wet soil and foundation walls apart, Platon ensures a dry and comfortable basement environment.

Compatibility with Various Foundation Types

One of the key advantages of Platon is its compatibility with various foundation types, including block, poured concrete walls, and insulated concrete forms. This versatility makes it a valuable addition to a wide range of construction projects.

In conclusion, Fastfoot® and Form-A-Drain Plus, along with the waterproofing capabilities of Platon, represent a leap forward in sustainable and efficient construction practices. As builders and architects continue to seek environmentally conscious solutions, these innovative technologies are poised to reshape the foundations of the future.
