Every couple of years I come upon a building product that is really eye catching, very interesting, and sensible. Faswall® is a green building system using “insulated wood chip-cement forms” that are exceptionally healthy and durable, offering excellent thermal properties.
Faswall is a perfect complement to our basalt rebars, mesh and reinforcements and our cork stuccos and plasters. Talk about a marriage made in heaven! Think about it, more insulation, more strength, and the very greenest, natural products available at affordable prices.
The breathable, insulating, moisture controlling properties of the cork based stuccos and plasters and the strength and non-corrosion of the basalt, would make the Faswall block form the very best option I have ever seen.
The basalt volcanic rock rebar and reinforcements are 70 percent lighter than steel, in concrete 2-3 times stronger, and the emissions from making these reinforcements are 40 times lower than steel.
I can’t stress enough how perfect these materials are and how sensible it will be to use them together. Anyone thinking of building a green home would very smart to build using this new system.
Fire retardant, bug retardant, moisture controlling, breathable and long lasting durable products, that are affordable. Plus the benefit of longevity. Not having rusting, rotting, peeling, corrosion, or issues with mold, means peace of mind and huge savings for the life of the building along with the safety and security these products offer.
I am excited and hope you all are too.
