Advantage ICF System®
The Advantage ICF System is a patented insulating concrete forming system consisting of two layers of Type 2 expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation connected with web connectors molded into the EPS insulation. The top and bottom edges of Advantage ICF System blocks have pre-formed interlocking mechanisms which ensure web connectors align vertically for attachment of surface finish materials.
When the installed Advantage ICF System blocks are filled with concrete, an insulated, monolithic concrete wall of uniform thickness is formed. The result is superior, energy efficient wall that will provide long-term energy cost savings and add resale value to the building.
Building with Advantage ICFs provides improved energy efficiency and effective thermal resistance. The Advantage system also provides a safe and quiet living, reduced noise transmission and reduced air leakage in the structure. Our patented forming system provides 5 steps in 1: Structural strength, studding, vapour barrier, air barrier and external sheathing resulting in reduced construction time.
The Advantage ICF System is ideal for applications such as Foundations, Residential, Commercial, Party Walls, Frost Walls, and Retaining walls for landscaping.
Available in 6 and 8 inch product lines
