Compare the safety of ICF walls to other traditionally built exterior walls.
We have all seen the results of extreme weather and the devastation that it can cause. Wind pressure and debris driven by high winds generally present some of the greatest hazards to people and property. Build with ICF walls: save your life, save your investment!
ARXX ICF foundations and wall assembly can protect your home from wind speeds of up to 250 mph and can stop the impact of wind-borne projectiles from destroying the walls and penetrating the building interior. Check out the video and we'll prove it!
Shell Craft Commercial Structures provides ICF wall construction. This video demonstrates and ICF wall's strength.
ICF homes are proven to be safer, more economical and healthier to live in.
Insulated concrete forms (ICF), steel rebar reinforced 4” pored concrete walls with 21/2” expanded polystyrene insulation on both sides with effective R-29 value. Entire exterior walls are capable of tornado-force, withstanding hurricane winds and flying debris up to 200 mph.
Fire resistant and sound suppressing
Up to Four Hours Fire resistance rating which protects your family. Dramatically reduced
Noise from the outside.
Effective up to R-29 insulation value based on thermal mass which results in up to 70% energy savings on your monthly electric bill.
This is how we build!
Virtually allergy and asthma free. Drastically reduces air infiltration resulting in less dust pollen and other pollutants coming in from the outside.
