The Basics of ICF

The principles of ICF are where you lock up the thermal mass, the concrete, with two insulating panels that keep the thermal mass at a constant temperature, therefore it doesn't matter whether you have a blizzard or a firestorm outside, it remains at a constant temperature inside.

Simpler, Faster, Better

Eco ICF Block Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) represent the superior way to build. This revolutionary method of construction is also the simplest. Eco ICF Block insulating concrete forms are EPS panels that easily snap together to create walls of virtually any thickness. The space between the panels is filled with concrete that cures and hardens into reinforced core of incredible strength.

The Eco ICF Block system gets the job done faster, taking less time to build with fewer people. You also save on transportation costs and delivery time, because our blocks are packed flat. Eco ICF Block is therefore easier to transport and handle than any other fixed-block.

Energy savings generated by an Eco ICF Block building are enormous and continue for the life of the building. It is also better, because Eco ICF Block buildings are vastly more energy-efficient. Stronger, quieter. resistant to fire, moisture, mould and the elements together with a positive ecological impact. This is by far the 'better way to build'...

  • Significant energy savings
  • Reduced noise transmission
  • Will not support the growth of mould or mildew
  • Can be built to any seismic or hurricane-storm standard
  • Up to a four-hour Fire Resistive Rating
  • No Limits To Design

Eco ICF Block gives you unlimited design flexibility. Got a saw? Eco ICF Block cuts easily into any shape you need — perfect for unique window openings and arches. You can also choose from our pre-formed corners in varying sizes and angles. And any exterior or interior finish can be directly applied to the panels.

  • Build from the footing to the roofline, using one crew, one system.
  • Form walls 100mm thick and greater in any configuration.
  • Create any shape or contour your design calls for.
  • Apply any exterior or interior finish.
