Because our world is changing in economic, social and environmental ways, construction and building methods are changing as well. The goals of any construction project today are to use high quality, sustainable building materials and methods. The ICF Product line from NUDURA meets the high demands for commercial, educational, medical, residential and a variety of other building types.
Our patented Fastening Strip securely locks forms into place with a patented reversible triple tooth interlock eliminating float and compression and the need to wire forms. The DURALOK Technology™ has embedded web/fastening strips that run the full 18-inch height of each and every web, ensuring the icf forms do not compress during concrete placement and provide an industry leading continuous fastening strip for finish materials.
Our Patented Hinged Web allows NUDURA ICF Products to be shipped flat, allowing for 40% more product on a truck compared to other ICF Form products. Simply unfold and stack.
NUDURA Standard Forms are the largest standard Insulated Concrete Form in the industry measuring 96" x 18" (2438 x 457 mm) allowing the placement of 12 square feet of wall area in one building step. Building with DURAMAX Technology™ results in faster installation times, less waste and a reduced amount of seams.
4-WAY REVERSIBLE System
The patented foam interlock allows the form to be 4 way reversible, almost eliminating waste. Eliminates left and right corners which allow NUDURA ICF Forms to be used in twice as many scenarios as no reversible forms.
Homes and buildings today have to be more than just aesthetically pleasing, they have to provide benefits. Open the door to a NUDURA built home or building and see how you can enjoy greater comfort, safety, energy efficiency and a healthier and more eco-friendly Insulated Concrete Form house.
With growing energy costs, building an insulated concrete form house is more energy efficient and can save you significant amounts of money on a yearly basis and reduce your carbon footprint. NUDURA insulated concrete form walls vastly reduce air infiltration, which greatly optimizes energy performance. When you combine two panels of 2 5/8” EPS foam with the structural strength and thermal mass of concrete a NUDURA insulated concrete form house can provide R-Values as high as R-50, saving you up to 70% in energy costs.
Greater Comfort & Sound Resistance
Outside cold can easily travel through a typical wood-framed wall, causing thermal bridging, and creating uncomfortable cold spots inside your home. Insulated Concrete Form houses built with NUDURA® offer superior performance when it comes to thermal bridging, resulting in even temperatures throughout your home with reduced drafts and cold spots, which optimizes energy performance. NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms act as an effective sound barrier, filtering out unwanted noise. NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms dampen sound vibrations from unwanted outside noise, such as, traffic, trains and neighbors.
NUDURA offers your family maximum safety with a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours. With a NUDURA Insulated concrete form house, walls are built with steel reinforced concrete and a non-toxic fire retardant expanded polystyrene foam ensuring maximum safety. NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms provide greater impact resistance and will withstand winds of up to 402 kph (250 mph) ensuring that your family and home are safe and secure in almost any situation. The strength of the NUDURA wall comes from the solid concrete core.
A NUDURA Insulated Concrete Form home is built to last, and retains its value longer. The main structural element in a NUDURA home is reinforced concrete which offers substantially better durability and requires less maintenance and repair over its lifetime compare to wood structures that require regular maintenance over it’s limited life span.
