Insulated Concrete Forms - How do they work?

 

Insulated Concrete Forms are very large format polystyrene blocks with a hollow core in which concrete is poured to form the wall structure. The polystyrene walls of the blocks then provide an additional barrier system which adds exceptional warmth & sound-proofing. Here's how it works...

1. Lightweight ICF blocks are very easy to get on site, saving significant time and labour costs in the early construction phase.

 

2. ICF blocks are designed to stack securely together and are customised on site to suit the building design specifications.

 

3. ICF construction is completed by pouring concrete into the cavity.

 

4. Once cured, the cladding is fixed. This can be wood, tile, plaster, weatherboards or any other cladding feature desired.

 

5. Family inside, wet weather outside. The result is a home with triple the insulation values required by the New Zealand building code, and will outlast the 50 year durability requirement for the structure.
