Today's buildings demand reliable, high thermal performance building envelopes that provide energy-efficiency, prevent heat loss, eliminate thermal bridging and provide safety and comfort over their operating lifetime. These performance criteria are key factors in minimizing energy running costs and reducing carbon emissions, while maximizing property value for owners. Building icf structures with NUDURA allow all of these things to happen.
ICF Structures Built with NUDURA offer:
NUDURA icf structures greatly reduce air infiltration, which greatly optimizes energy performance. NUDURA Forms combined with the structural strength and thermal mass of concrete can provide R-Values as high as R-50, saving building owners up to 70% in energy costs.
NUDURA icf structures offer maximum safety with a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours. With a NUDURA icf structure walls are built with steel reinforced concrete and a the forms have a non toxic fire retardant expanded polystyrene foam ensuring maximum safety.
NUDURA ICF Structures act as an effective sound barrier, filtering out unwanted noise, dampening sound vibrations from unwanted outside noise creating comfortable working or living spaces for occupants. NUDURA icf structures create the ultimate in building comfort.
NUDURA ICF Structures provide greater impact resistance and will withstand winds of up to 402 kph (250 mph) ensuring building occupants are safe and secure in almost any situation. The strength of the NUDURA wall comes from the solid concrete core.
ICF Structures are ideal for use in a variety of structures, commercial, residential, industrial, institutional, health care and a variety of other building types. NUDURA ICF Structures have been built up to 15 storey’s in height, making them ideal for hotels and condominiums.
