Octaform makes it easier, faster and more economical to build with concrete.
Finished When Formed
Octaform is a stay-in-place, concrete forming system that allows you to build structures of virtually any size or design. Using proven patented technology, the Octaform system consists of PVC panels and components that encapsulate concrete to form a moisture resistant protective shell. The result is decades of reliability.
Octaform easily accommodates architectural and engineering requirements. Any crew with construction experience can quickly learn assembly skills on the job.
One Step Structure
Octaform forms and protects your structure in one step. The finish (and optional insulation) is built-in. This eliminates the need for liners, cladding or sealants but it also simplifies construction.
Our patented concrete forming system assembles quickly without specialized labor or heavy equipment. No cranes or steel forms are typically required.
Octaform stays in place so your concrete cures in a controlled environment, minimizing cracking and shrinkage. There are no forms to be stripped or moved so concrete can be poured as fast as you can build. Just assemble, brace and pour.
Energy Efficient and More
It’s no secret that concrete has excellent thermal properties. Insulated concrete forms are already recognized as a great way to build energy-efficient structures. Unlike other plastic forms, the Octaform Concrete Forming System offers a choice of both the thermal insulation type and degree of insulation power to go into your formed concrete walls. When EPS is applied to the exterior of formed concrete walls, the finished wall is highly thermally efficient.
Zero Clearance Required
Adjacent construction can be difficult in developed areas. Octaform’s simple stay-in-place formwork makes it easy to build in tight spots. Because the forms only require bracing on one side, there’s no need for additional excavations, external liners and sacrificial formwork.
