Concrete Homes – Green ICF Home Designs
Choosing superior, environmentally friendly materials like Durisol ICF insulated concrete forms for your design will guarantee that your building will endure for generations, while having minimal impact on the environment around us.
Durisol Insulated Concrete Form ICF Comparison
When designers and builders make cost-effective and technically superior decisions in a manner that is environmentally responsible, they are providing the best design solution for both the owner and the environment
ICF Performance Benefits
- 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
Please click on the following link for a detailed comparison of Durisol vs other ICF systems:
STC 54 – 72
NRC 0.70 – 0.95
The sound absorptive properties of Durisol in combination with the mass of the wall system provides an ideal combination of sound absorption and sound transmission properties. Wall Sound Transmission Coefficient (STC) ratings can range between 54 and 72, while the Durisol material itself provides Noise Reduction Coefficients (NRC) ratings as high as 0.95. This means that 95% of the sound that reaches the Durisol material is absorbed and not reflected back into the airspace.
