ICF – No Polystyrene
Insulated Concrete Forms – ICF Building Systems by Durisol
Durisol insulated concrete forms are the original ICF system. Since 1945, we have been manufacturing the only reinforced insulated concrete forms that do not use foam or polystyrene, and instead, use Durisol – a proprietary wood concrete material (cement bonded wood fiber).
ICF wall forms provide better insulation (R-values) properties, better water resistance, consistent performance year after year, no air infiltration, high wind load, high fire resistance, never rots or decays, termite resistance, sound deadening, fast installation, and many other benefits.
ICF construction is proven, tested and is guaranteed to provide you with a better return on investment than any conventional construction method.
Energy-efficient green building with Durisol ICF insulated concrete forms
With 14 facilities worldwide, we have a proven product and ICF material that is ideal for both below- and above-grade building construction. As the construction industry continues supporting green building and environmentally sensitive construction, Durisol ICF insulated concrete foundation forms have from the beginning, been an integral component of all types construction. Since the late 1990s, Durisol has been an integral part of certified LEED and green building- from passive solar design to environmentally energy efficient construction.
Benefits of ICF Wall Forms
- Fireproof (4 hr Fire Rating, 0 Smoke Spread, 0 Flame Spread)
- Moisture Resistant
- Promotes Healthy Interiors (breathable / inhibits mold)
- More Energy Efficient (Insulation on Exterior of Thermal Mass)
- Impact Resistant
- Termite/Vermin Proof
ICF Construction Advantages
- Easily cut (like wood)
- Allows for Winter Construction
- Zero Voids
- Zero Blowouts
- Can attach screw to any point on surface
- Easy to Finish
Durisol Insulated Concrete Forms provide a superior concrete green building technology that delivers cost-effective, high-performance structures. Made from 100% recycled, clean, waste wood, Durisol concrete structures are safer, quieter, more comfortable, energy-efficient, structurally secure, and environmentally responsible than any other concrete building system available on the market today.
