Insulating Concrete Forms

Our dna

#

IntegraSpec® was created with the input of structural engineers, computer assisted design and more than 75 years of field experience in the residential / commercial concrete forms and general construction industry.

#

IntegraSpec® is truly the toughest ICF in the industry today. The system was developed to address and eliminate the problems that most ICF systems encounter: blowouts, form unit flotation/lift, bulging, wall compression, slow pouring speed and wavy walls.

INNOVATION
AT YOUR SERVICE

#

The IntegraSpec® system consists of stay-in-place expanded polystyrene concrete form panels which are shipped to site flat in easy to handle bundles, installed in courses and spaced with various sized patented interlocking spacers.

#

Spacers are designed for fast snap-in-place rebar for a choice of steel sizes and spacing and are easily cut to quickly form openings and provide specific heights. Most importantly, spacers provide mechanical interlock to eliminate form lift.

#

After rapid wall set up and easy alignment, concrete is poured, resulting in a solid monolithic concrete wall structure, ready for exterior/interior finishes.

THE INTEGRASPEC DIFFERENCE

The genuine patented multi-directional, “flippable and reversible” IntegraSpec® ICF independent panel design dramatically reduces inventory, site waste, installation time, labor, and transportation costs.

  • Panels are reversible and bi-directional, eliminating top, bottom, right and left, greatly reducing waste of material.
  • Panels are easily cut on a table saw ensuring accuracy without any worries of hitting dangerous metal pins or having to further cut the spacers/webs inside the block(s).
  • Interior of each panel includes dovetail grooves creating a mechanical bond with the concrete, eliminating air/water leakage and delamination.
  • Inserts are embedded and uniquely bonded by fusion within the expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam panels. They provide a slide for the various width concrete core spacers. They also provide a continuous vertical reinforcing spine, which also eliminates form compression.
  • Inserts are located at every 8" on center and easily identified by the embossed IntegraSpec name. They provide a 1 5/8" furring/studs for attachment of exterior/interior finishes.
  • Spacers are available in 4'', 5'', 6'', 8'', 10'' & 12'' widths and can be combined using the revolutionary “H” clip for wider concrete thickness.
  • Spacers also stop form compression often found in other ICFs with foam on foam connecting blocks.

INTEGRASPEC HOME

  • NO thermal bridging, cold spots, mold or mildew, or sound transmission.

TRADITIONAL (WOOD FRAMED) HOME

  • Wood studs = thermal bridging
  • Installation errors = cold spots
  • Prone to mold/mildew/rot
  • Noise pollution not mitigated
  • Not as structurally stable, resulting in cracks, leaks, pests.
