Insulated Concrete Forms
Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF's) are proven energy efficient products that have been well documented to significantly reduce heating and cooling loads in buildings. Fox Blocks ICF Wall System brand is the latest generation of insulated concrete form available from the manufacturer to the market.
All Fox Blocks forms are designed with a pre-formed interlocking system that holds the courses of block securely together and are reversible. This prevents movement of the forms during concrete placement and concrete leakage during a pour. Fox Blocks' uniquely clever design helps speed construction with:
Fox Blocks offers a 100% recyclable product; both the polypropylene plastic webs and the expanded polystyrene foam panels can be completely diverted from landfill. Fox Blocks contain 100% post industrial Pre-Consumer recycled high density polypropylene webs as the structural skeleton of the form. and do not contain HCFC, CFC, or Formaldehydes of any kind. Fox Blocks is stable and inert.
A Fox Blocks specification will contribute LEED points through Optimal Energy Performance criteria by improving building energy efficiency and subsequent reduction of HVAC equipment design loads and consumption rates.
