What are Insulated Concrete Forms?

Insulated concrete forms (ICF) are hollow foam blocks that are stacked into the shape of the exterior walls of a building, reinforced with steel rebar, and then filled with concrete. Insulated concrete forms combine one of the finest insulating materials - Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) - with one of the strongest structural building materials - steel reinforced concrete. The result is a wall system of unmatched comfort, energy efficiency, strength and noise reduction.

The top benefits of ICF are as follows:

  • Energy efficient resulting in lower energy costs

  • Environmentally Friendly

  • STC rating of 51+ - makes for a very quiet space

  • Low maintenance

  • Safe and strong for increased security

  • Fire rated up to 4 hours

  • Lower insurance premiums

  • Termite resistant

  • Improved air quality, mold and mildew resistant

  • Energy Star Certified
