BENEFITS OF ICF

Building with Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) is a now proven way of creating an eco-friendly, stronger, safer building that’s highly energy efficient, needs minimal maintenance and repair; and one where design possibilities are limitless.

It’s a modern fast-track method of construction suitable for commercial, residential, industrial, institutional, healthcare and a variety of other building types.

Switching from traditional building methods to ICF technology will significantly reduce labour and increase speed of build. ICF offers considerable benefits over both brick and block and timber frame.

MAIN BENEFITS

Energy Efficiency

ICF Structures greatly reduce air infiltration, which optimises energy performance
}

Speed of Build

Six building steps are completed within one product: form and wall structure, insulation, air and vapour barriers, and the interior and exterior finish anchorage.

Acoustic Performance

ICF structures act as an effective sound barrier, dampening sound vibrations and filtering out unwanted noise and so creating comfortable working or living spaces for occupants.

Fire Resistance

ICF structures offer maximum safety with a fire protection rating of up to four hours.

Resilence

ICFs are highly suited for ease of build for both complex and curved structures and the same system can be used for below and above grade walls. The solid concrete core provides greater impact resistance and will withstand winds of up to 250 mph.
