Octaform is used on hundreds of farms to build manure tanks, barn walls, dairy parlors, cattle handling and more.
The Better Way to Build your Barn
Thanks to the durability, versatility, and simplicity of Octaform systems, it has been a popular choice of building material on farms for more than 20 years. Our corrosion-resistant PVC finish ensures that your structure will outlast and outperform just about any alternative.
Octaform can also reduce the need for chemical pest control, antibiotics or other medical treatment often necessitated by conventional environments. Octaform’s food-grade PVC finish is easy to clean and will not absorb bacteria or support the growth of mold.
Form your farm facility
Octaform forms and protects your structure in one step because the finish (and insulation if required) is built-in. This eliminates the need for liners, cladding or sealants and also simplifies construction. Our patented concrete forming system assembles quickly, without specialized labor or heavy equipment. No cranes or steel forms are typically required.
The form becomes the finished wall on both sides, unlike traditional ICF which requires additional cladding to finish the wall.

Instead of five years, we can go 10 or 12 years without fixing the barn. We spend a little more up front to save on everything else.

From everything we’ve seen, durability and performance will be better than conventional construction.
Use Less Energy with Octaform
Barns built with Octaform use less energy than most wooden barns to heat, cool and even light the facilities. This stable environment helps eliminate livestock stress and as a result, farmers report faster growth and less loss due to heat stress.

We’ve seen over a 35% reduction in our heating costs.
