The Advantage ICF System is a patented insulating concrete forming system consisting of two layers of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation connected with web connectors molded into the EPS insulation. The top and bottom edges of Advantage ICF System blocks have pre-formed interlocking mechanisms which ensure web connectors align vertically for attachment of surface finish materials.
When the installed Advantage ICF System blocks are filled with concrete, an insulated, monolithic concrete wall of uniform thickness is formed. The result is a superior, energy efficient wall that will provide long-term energy cost savings while adding resale value to the building.
Building with Advantage ICFs provides improved energy efficiency and effective thermal resistance. The Advantage system also provides a safe and quiet living space, reduced noise
transmission and reduced air leakage in the structure.
Advantage ICFs are used in projects such as residential homes, recreational homes and cottages, multifamily projects, party walls for residential projects, industrial buildings and commercial buildings.
