Technology can be utilized in virtually any building design.
Homes, apartments, commercial buildings, Churches or Schools
all fit the criteria for ICF buildings. It is an ideal product
when insulation value, building
strength, sound and comfort are desired features.
The main features of the
NUDURA ICF system revolve around
- The forms acting as the
stay in place concrete forming system.
- The plastic webbing in
the wall system has a second role as the studding for
drywall and siding. No need for extra studding or
- The Expanded Poly Styrene
acts as the insulation for the building, which reduces
energy requirements for heating and cooling systems.
- The total system acts as
the vapor barrier for the building.
Exterior walls can be finished
with all types of normal finish such as brick, stone, stucco
or siding. Normal interior finishes are drywall or stucco
applied directly to the built in studding.
When combined with in floor
heating there are potential energy savings of up to 70%
compared to conventional stick frame homes. This will quickly
pay back the slightly higher cost involved in a full home
construction utilizing NUDURA.
As added benefits
IsoMatrixx can supply the
insulated floor and ceiling technology systems which
accentuate the insulation value of the ICF wall system. Type 1
& 2 EPS, Tongue and Groove panels in varying thickness can
provide extremely high insulation value for you home or
building. With energy costs continuing to climb, isn't now the
time to start reversing the trend of paying more and more for
energy? At the same time you become an
environmental supporter by reducing the amounts of
trees being cut down for building and also help to reduce the
amount of fossil fuels required to create the high amounts of
energy being utilized to heat and cool homes.
NUDURA Executive with
over 30 years of ICF building experience
is continually looking for ways to improve the technology or
add to it to further reduce costs in the ICF industry. Thanks
to NUDURA the repeated price increases in the industry have
been halted and reversed to a tune of a 25% reduction in the
cost of ICF in Ontario. Look for them to continue to find ways
to make ICF the only way to build a home now and in the
Nudura is continually trying to build value
for the CI's and one of the ways to do that is to continually look towards
providing better products to build with but also to develop new ones.
Right now a couple of new products to be aware of are :
1. Ceiling Technology
2. New brick ledge block to combine with
brick ledge attachment.
3.Tongue and Groove insulation for floors.
4. Pre-formed T-Wall
