Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF)
Insulating Concrete Forms are one of the fastest growing systems for foundations and above-grade walls in commercial and residential construction. ICFs are engineered blocks that are stacked to create a concrete form the size of an entire wall and used for basements, foundations and building structures. Unlike typical plywood concrete forms, ICFs remain in place after the concrete is set, to provide substantial thermal mass, as well as thermal insulation properties for the building.
- Superior thermal and acoustical insulation properties
- Potential for labor reduction
- Concrete thermal mass
- Value-added system for overall energy savings
- Superior durability and resistance to storm-force winds
