NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) provide you with superior energy efficiency, consistency in performanceand lower utility costs over the lifespan of your home
What Are Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFS)?
The insulated concrete forms (ICF) building system uses Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam blocks that act as hollow forms. Ready-mix concrete is poured into the hollow form to build reinforced concrete walls.Insulated Concrete Forms from NUDURA provide design professionals, architects, homeowners, and contractors a more efficient way to build Insulated Concrete Form structures.
Why Choose NUDURA ICFS over Traditional Wood Framing?
With rising energy requirements and fuel costs, we need to use the most efficient way to build schools, hospitals, shopping malls, and other buildings. NUDURA ICFs are more environmentally friendly and cost-effective than wood, both during the construction phase and over the long term.

NUDURA ICF Forms are high-tech industry leading icf forms that have proven technologies to make building easier and faster. The NUDURA line of ICF Forms offer innovation that is exclusive to NUDURA, which allow builders the ability to build and design residential structures with greater efficiency.
With NUDURA insulated concrete wall systems you can be sure that your home will withstand the test of time. Whether they are subjected to high winds, fire or any of Mother Nature’s finest elements, NUDURA insulated concrete forms will prevail. NUDURA ICFS provide impact resistance much greater than that of wood walls and will withstand winds of up to 402 km per hour (250 mph). Your family and home will be safe and secure in almost any situation.
With growing energy costs, building a structure that is more energy efficient has become increasingly important. ICF structures will save you money. This is because ICF walls have insulation on both sides as well as the layer of concrete that is poured down the middle. All this insulation does means the ICF does not change in temperature back and forth with the heating and cooling throughout the day and night. The concrete is referred to as “thermal mass.” Because of the thickness and density of the ICF wall it takes so long to change the temperature one direction or the other, the temperature instead stays fairly constant.
