Product Features and Benefits


STANDARD™ Insulating Concrete Forms

STANDARD ICFs™ have a unique Modified Flat Wall™ interior design that combines with the 2 3/8-inch thick MEPS foam panels to provide exceptional form strength and superior overall thermal resistance.

STANDARD ICFs™ are very strong. With a 2 1/2 inch thick uniform wall thickness and the wall-tie brackets embedded in 3 7/8 inches of 1.5 net cured weight foam, STANDARD ICFs™ are among the strongest forms on the market. The manufacturing quality control procedures test every 28th form to make sure they will withstand 80 psi. of internal pressure on all three cavities simultaneously.

STANDARD ICFs™ have excellent quality controls during manufacturing to ensure that the MEPS foam panels have a uniform density of 1.5 lbs. (net cured weight) and smooth, flat exterior surfaces. Additionally, every 28th form is tested to withstand 80 psi. of internal pressure in all three cavities simultaneously.

STANDARD ICFs™have a thermal resistance R-Value of R-26+ by calculation and up to R-50 in performance.

STANDARD ICFs™ have strong tongue and groove edge jointing with interlocking stop-blocks and notches that ensure stability, strength, and alignment of the wall assembly during installation and concrete placement.

STANDARD ICFs™ have a 11 1/4 -inch overall form width that conforms to the width of 2 x 12 dimensional lumber. No need to rip or add material to make window and door bucks.

STANDARD ICFs™ have 3/16-inch thick x 1 5/8-inch wide x 16-inch height stud flanges, recessed 1/2-inch below the foam panel surface, that align to form an uninterrupted and continuous wall stud from footing to rafters, every 12-inch on center, to provide an excellent fastening surface for installing dry wall and exterior siding materials.

STANDARD ICFs™ have wall tie stud brackets and larger (3-inch wide x 16-inch high) corner brackets that are recessed 1/2-inch below the foam surface creating a stronger form and a more substantial and durable substrate.

STANDARD ICFs™ have wall tie brackets designed and laid out to improve concrete flow and minimize material waste.

STANDARD ICFs™ have unique 48-inch (18 + 30) corner forms that provide excellent corner stability and alignment during assembly and concrete placement with little or no bracing.

STANDARD ICFs™ have a tongue and groove alignment system such that all of the hard plastic brackets line up when stacking, and they tend to "bottom out" when put-in-place. The corner and wall-tie stud brackets stack directly on top of each other and are a full 16 inches in height (hard plastic brackets resting directly on top of each other).

We recommend using minimum expanding polyurethane foam adhesive to glue the form courses together as a measure to insure a quality installation, and to avoid problems, including compression.

The STANDARD ICF™ Wall Tie Stud Brackets:

STANDARD ICF™ Wall Tie Stud Brackets are made of durable HDPE virgin plastic material with excellent pullout strength for coarse thread screw fasteners when installing interior dry wall and exterior siding materials.

STANDARD ICF™ Wall Tie Stud Brackets are easy to cut through when it is necessary to do so, and are especially easy to cut in half horizontally when an 8-inch height is needed, without compromising form strength.

STANDARD ICF™ Wall Tie Stud Brackets eliminate problems caused by thermal bridging.

STANDARD ICF™ Wall Tie Stud Brackets are strong and rigid to prevent forms from racking.

STANDARD ICF™ Wall Tie Stud Brackets have a tandem re-bar saddle with a tie-down hole to make installation of re-bar quick and easy.

STANDARD ICF™ Wall Tie Stud Brackets have a designated electrical device box space and a designated electrical wire and conduit chase that can assist with electrical installations.

STANDARD ICF™ Wall Tie Stud Brackets rest directly on top of each other to prevent the forms from settling during placement of concrete.

The Unique STANDARD ICF™ Corner Brackets:

STANDARD ICF™ Corner Brackets are made of strong PVC plastic with excellent pullout strength for coarse thread screw fasteners when securing exterior siding materials.

STANDARD ICF™ Corner Brackets (3-inch wide x 16-inch high) stack on top of each other to provide an uninterrupted and continuous attachment surface on each leg of the outside corner forms for securing exterior siding materials.
