Continued Safe Use of NUDURA ICFs within Building of Non-Combustible Construction

Jul 17, 2017

First and foremost, NUDURA Inc. extends our sincere condolences to the families and those that have been directly or indirectly affected by the recent Grenfell Tower fire. In light of the concerns that have been raised by this tragic incident, NUDURA has been asked by our valued clients to provide a statement with respect to our Insulated Concrete Form System and the safety of structures employing our technology both now and in the future.

The foam plastic insulation used in our systems has also been assessed to be in full compliance with the Code Standards of Europe and the UK, specifically EN 13501-1 – attaining Classification E. All EPS foam used in our formwork (by this and similar manufacturing Regulations within North America) contains a mandatory polymeric based flame inhibiting agent, which is designed to extinguish flame when the flame source is removed from contact with the foam...

    Totally agree that "the full wall assembly with concrete core and finishes applied has been tested and determined to have an overall fire resistance rating of 4 hours for a minimum 152mm thickness concrete core when tested to Standard compliances consistent with the EN 1365-2 Standard". Really great!

    This is well iterated here "“Of all construction materials, concrete is one of the most resistant to heat and fire,” reports the Portland Cement Association. “Experience shows that concrete structures are more likely to remain standing through fire than are structures of other materials. Unlike wood, concrete does not burn. Unlike steel, it does not soften and bend.”

    Insulated concrete fittings in buildings would be great for fire prone buildings.
