Nudura insulated concrete forms (ICFs) make it easier and faster to design and build energy-efficient and resilient structures.
For everyday comfort, ICFs significantly reduce thermal bridging, resulting in even temperatures throughout your home and saving owners up to 60% in annual utility costs. ICFs also act as an effective sound barrier by dampening outside noise, such as traffic, trains, and neighbors.
ICF walls are built with reinforced concrete and fire-retardant Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam, providing a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours - 4 times that of a typical wood-frame structure. This enables occupants that much more time to safely evacuate in the event of a fire.
Buildings constructed with Nudura ICFs also have superior impact resistance to protect from flying debris and can be engineered to withstand natural disasters like tornadoes and hurricanes to ensure the safety of its occupants. Nudura’s concrete embedded multi-purpose roof/ truss anchor system provides greater resistance to wind uplift forces than other conventional systems.
With all of these benefits, a building constructed with Nudura insulated concrete forms and structural reinforced concrete has increased comfort, longer-lasting durability and lower life cycle costs compared to wood structures.
