Low-emission Insulated Concrete Forms based
on EPS. Steel-reinforced insulated concrete panel formwork suitable
for walls, slabs and tilts.
Formcraft Insulated Concrete Form (ICF)
construction systems are thermally insulated, structurally strong,
steel reinforced concrete wall, slab and tilt panel systems that
can be built in a range of thicknesses for residential and
commercial building projects, offices, apartments, single and
multi-storey, above and below ground including retaining, external
insulated walls, internal load bearing and party walls. Suitable
for extreme climates, cyclonic regions, fire protection bunkers and
community refuges, and for energy efficient and sustainable
Formcraft ICF range is comprised of
Formcraft FormPro® ICF Walls, FormDeck™ ICF Suspended
Slabs and Roof Decks, and FormTilt® ICF Tilt
The insulation is provided by high density
expanded polystyrene (EPS) panels in a number of configurations
that during construction double as formwork panels held together by
Formcraft's unique polypropylene (PP) connection system.
Plaster board may be added to finish the internal surface. The
insulation rating is typically R = 3.5 providing excellent
conduction control to the building fabric and allowing significant
energy savings for heating and cooling of interiors. ICF systems
effectively seal buildings which further reduces energy usage for
heating and cooling.
The formwork systems are complemented by
Formcraft's propriety door and window sub-frame system
that integrates into the walls to provide a water-proof, universal
sub-frame into which a range of window and door types, including
double glazed, can be fitted.
Formcraft maximises the amount of
recycled material used in all its products, especially the
connection system. These products are inert, hypoallergenic
and no CFC's are used in the production process.
Formcraft's fast-track construction
systems allow considerable savings in construction times and hence
in construction costs.
