Hurricrete - The Fastes ICF on the Planet
Insulating Concrete Forms are the future of the building industry. Popular for both residential and commercial ICF construction, ICFs create homes and businesses that are energy-efficient, fire-resistant, sound-proof, and durable. Properly constructed, they are tornado and hurricane-proof, and stand up to earthquake, fire, and other natural disasters equally well. Many homes conserve energy so well that heating and cooling costs are reduced by 50-70 percent.
Typical ICFs are made from lightweight EPS foam, commonly called Styrofoam. The hollow blocks are stacked like Legos to form the exterior walls of a structure. When complete, the interior of the wall is filled with steel-reinforced concrete to create an incredibly strong and energy efficient home or commercial building Insulated concrete forms are growing an estimated 20% a year, and are considered a Green Building material that can contribute up to 20 points towards LEED accreditation.
