Building with Faswall® concrete form material is particularly appealing for DIY home construction. Faswall® blocks are dry stacked — no mortar needed!
Stack the Concrete Form Material Blocks Without Mortar & Set Rebar
The concrete form material wall forms are simply stacked on top of each other without mortar. These are held in place by the interlocking tongue-and-groove end design, and walls can be built in any dimension/shape imaginable.
Next, set rebar both horizontally and vertically within the stacked forms prior to filling the cores with concrete. This “post and beam” grid effect makes the concrete form material wall exceptionally strong.
Fills the Concrete Form Material Blocks with Concrete
The concrete form material blocks are cast from a mixture of K-X Aggregate (mineralized wood chips) and Portland cement. The wall forms are designed as stay-in-place units, which become part of a load-bearing wall only after being filled with reinforced concrete.
Plumbing & Electrical is a Cinch to Integrate
You can nail and screw directly into Faswall® concrete form material. You can also easily cut Faswall® blocks with carpenter’s tools.
Electrical wiring can be cut into the walls, or plumbing and electrical can be installed prior to pouring concrete.
Simple to Integrate & Install Windows & Doors
Easily Surface Finish on Both Sides
You can surface finish Faswall® concrete form material directly on both sides. It makes an excellent substrate for plasters and stuccos — it keys-in on the porous surfaces.
Faswall® Block Structure
The wall forms are supplied in three main types for building your entire project: a Standard Wall Form, a Corner Wall Form and an AP Wall Form.
The AP Wall Form can be easily split to form (2) Half blocks (one with male end and one with female end). A Male End block and Female End block are also available for building openings.
Standard Wall Form
(cuts in half to form 1/2 size block)
Corner Wall Form (outside or inside notched as needed)
End Block Wall Form
The beam notches in each wall form, which allow for the formation of a horizontal beam of concrete, must be continuous in the whole wall system. All Faswall® wall forms come notched to form these horizontal beams, except the AP blocks that form ½ blocks. These must be field notched.
A helpful feature of the Faswall® concrete form material system is that all wall forms are interchangeable dimensionally. This gives the installer options if he lacks a particular type of wall form for a given part of the build. For example, the AP unit can be used as a standard wall form, or a corner wall form if necessary.
The concrete form material blocks are shipped on 48”x36” or 48”x48” pallets, each pallet containing entirely one type of wall form.
