BIGFOOT SYSTEMS® FOOTING FORMS

Bigfoot Systems® are pre-engineered footing forms used as pier footings with construction tubes. Manufactured from recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE), Bigfoot can be used in all situations where pier footings are required. Bigfoot is used not only as a pier footing but also acts as an anchor to prevent uplift in areas subject to high-velocity winds. Because of this, our product has a superior advantage in areas subject to hurricanes. Other important features of Bigfoot Systems® Footing Forms: Easy one-day installation, saving time, money and aggravation. Traditional wooden form boxes can take up to three days to install. Engineered design offers footings with greatly increased stability, safety and convenience. Bigfoot’s advantage rests with its shape – a bell shaped footing with a round base – which uses the natural laws of physics to evenly distribute the entire load’s weight, solidly securing the footing to the earth, something a square footing just cannot do.
