FASTFOOT®

Ram warehouse project

Fastfoot®

Made of high density polyethylene fabric, Fastfoot® is a green replacement of lumber and plywood for forming concrete footings.

A 100' roll of Fastfoot® forms the same concrete as 1,500 pounds of lumber.

Fastfoot® is now printed in three colors for easy reference of footing width lines and QR codes for onsite reference to the installation quide.

Nominated in 2010 and 2012 as the Contractors' Choice product of the year. Click on image to visit Concrete Contractor website.

Fastfoot® is ideal for residential and commercial strip footings and pad edging.

 

Advantages

No concrete damage

Prevents Concrete Damage

Fastfoot® is a closed form. As seen from this photo there is no concrete damage to screed boards and stakes.

This means your 2x4s and stakes can be re-used indefinitely.

Adapts to uneven ground

Adapts to Uneven Ground, Rock

Special colored width lines allow Fastfoot® to be 'let out' or 'pulled in' to accomodate uneven excavations.

No need to scab lumber on the sides of your footings or shovel the ground to achieve the footing depth.

Fastfoot® is perfect over rock as shown in this photo.

Perfect for steps

Ideal for Stepped Footings

Fastfoot® quickly adapts to the uneven contours of your bank. No need to waste plywood.

Deep footings

Forms Deep Footings

Fastfoot® is ideal for deep footings and commerical pads. Form footings up to 4' deep.

Eliminate expensive and heavy plywood and eliminate expensive re-cycling of formwork.

Prevent rising damp

Prevents Rising Damp

Concrete is 'hygroscopic', wicking up ground moisture which leads to a damp and moldy interior.

Fastfoot® is a damp proof membrane, preventing ground moisture wicking into the footing concrete, providing a drier, healthier indoor environment.

Prevents ground water contamination

Prevents Ground Water Contamination

Fastfoot® is a closed form, preventing cement fines from entering the water table.

Stronger concrete

Stronger Concrete

As the picture above shows, Fastfoot® prevents the footing concrete from being contaminated by mud and water, leading to a stronger concrete.

In the summer, Fastfoot® prevents rapid evaporation of moisture in the sides and bottom of the footing. This ensures adequate moisture for proper hydration of the cement particles.

Green

Greener

Fastfoot® is LEED® contributing and GreenSpec® listed.
