INSULATING CONCRETE FORMS BUILDING SYSTEMS


Shafer Bros

Shafer Bros is a BuildBlock Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) Building Systems Distributor.

Builders can take advantage of fast, easy construction with Insulating Concrete Forms supplied by Shafer Bros. Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) are a stay in place form for concrete made from EPS foam panels connected with plastic webs or ties that join the panels. These webs provide embedded furring strips as well as a placeholder for rebar. The webs provide placement options for securing rebar and form insulated studs every 6″.

Once filled with concrete and left in place they provide extremely high-density insulation and air-tight sound-proof walls. Traditional finishes can be applied to interior and exterior faces making buildings look similar to typical construction, although the walls are usually thicker.

BENEFITS OF USING INSULATING CONCRETE FORMS

  • Reduced energy use by 60%
  • Sound-blocking ability and comfort
  • Walls that are resistant to high-wind speed and other natural disasters

  • Strong cast-in-place concrete walls
  • Compatibility with carpenter trades
