Fab-Form's mission is to accelerate the transition
to sustainable foundations for building structures.
Since 1986 Fab-Form has invented, developed and commercialized
foundation products that are greener and more sustainable for the building
industry. Each product is cost effective and uses less embodied energy in
- In 1986, Fab-Form developed the fabric-based
Fastfoot footing form,
which replaced bulky dimensional lumber with light weight polyethylene.
- In 1999 Fab-Form developed the fabric-based
Fastbag, which was used to
seismically upgrade schools and homes damaged after the 1989 Loma Prieta
earthquake in Northern California.
- In 2002, Fab-Form introduced the fabric-based
Fast-Tube, the world's
first column form manufactured entirely of a lightweight polyethylene
fabric. Placing 100' of column form behind the contractor's seat was
- In 2010, Fab-Form introduced the
Zont bracing system
for insulated concrete forms. Traditional ICF braces are heavy and
cumberson - the Zont brace weigh and costs about 10% of conventional.
- In 2011, Fab-Form introduced the
ICF Monopour System for insulated concrete forms. This product made
ICFs far more sustainable and economic as a single concrete pour could
complete the footing and foundation wall.
Currently Fab-Form is developing a 'passive-ready' foundation
which will significantly reduce heat losses from the concrete foundation
while being less expensive and more sustainable that conventional methods.
