Based on an Independent Carbon Footprint report, Carbon Savings calculations are based on the lifespan of the products, the manufacturing process and recyclability:
Fast Form VS Lumber Formwork (All types of Formwork):
Traditional Lumber formwork uses .48 lbs Carbon per ft2
Fast Form with a Plywood Face uses.08 lbs Carbon per ft2 , saving 0.4 lbs of Carbon for EVERY Ft2 of formwork cast compared to Lumber formwork
Fast Form with Plastic Ply face uses 0.044 lbs Carbon per ft2, saving 0.446 lbs of Carbon for EVERY Ft2 of formwork cast compared to Lumber formwork
Fast Form uses more than 5.5 times less Carbon than traditional lumber formwork with standard plywood and 10 times less when a recyclable plastic ply is used.
Not factored in is delivery, Fast Form is 3 times lighter than other panel based forming systems so would cost less to deliver, is easier to handle and the Carbon Footprint on delivery is also much less overall
