What Are Insulated Concrete Forms?
Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) are blocks or panels of
concrete, usually reinforced with rebar. They can consist of
cement, polystyrene foam, polyurethane or sometimes
cement bonded wood fiber.
One reason ICFs are considered "Green" is that they often
use a mixture of recycled wood and cement.
They are also very strong and can resist strong winds. ICFs
are very popular in areas that are susceptible to hurricanes,
and builders and residents in the midwest have taken note of
the ability of structures built with Insulated Concrete Forms to
withstand Tornado strength winds.
In fact, ICFs have become popular to use in construction of
"tornado safe structures" for people who live in these areas.
