Through the use of Insulated Concrete Forms, our energy efficient buildings ensure:
Minimised energy costs
Reduced carbon emissions
Maximised property value
Superior strength and durability
Faster build time
Better storm, sound and fire resistance
Reduced draughts and cold spots
Insulated Concrete Forms consist of two panels of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) connected with a web system made from 100% recycled material.
The Forms are stacked, steel reinforced and filled with concrete to complete the building envelope of your structure in one simple step.
Forms are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, providing the versatility to realise your project as envisioned.
The Forms arrive flat and are simply unfolded and stacked on site. They are then locked securely into place without the need for wiring or glue.
The process is over 30% faster than traditional building methods, and with the ability to continue building throughout inclement weather, your project stays on schedule.
The time saved results in reduced labour and shipping costs, allowing a superior build to be delivered at a comparable cost to any traditional build.
Our builds provide a standard U-Value of 0.24, with solutions available that offer U-Values as low as 0.11.
The Forms reduce the speed at which heat leaves the building, helping maintain a stable internal temperature throughout the day/night cycle. reducing the need for mechanical heating and cooling.
This minimises the need for mechanical heating and cooling, reducing annual energy costs for the end user by up to 70%.
Insulated Concrete Forms act as an effective sound barrier by dampening sound vibrations from unwanted outside noise, providing Sound Reduction Index ratings as low as SRI 5.1.
Walls are built with steel reinforced concrete and a non-toxic fire retardant expanded polystyrene foam, providing a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours.
The solid concrete core will withstand winds of up to 250 mph (402 km/h). Combined with enhanced safety in flood-prone areas, building occupants are safe and secure from inclement weather.
ICF structures are built to last and retain value for longer. Reinforced concrete offers substantially better durability and will require less maintenance and repair over its lifetime. Unlike timber frame structures, the Forms will not support mould growth.
