Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF)

Moore Construction - Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) house construction for the construction industry Moore Construction is always on the cutting edge with innovative and environmentally friendly ideas. As a result of our relentless quest to provide you the best in high quality house construction we are proud to be associated with Quad-Lock. Quad-Lock manufacture panels for Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) construction which is fast, simple, strong and versatile.

The panels produce a flat, solid concrete wall which provides the customer with a constant thickness of concrete throughout the wall. It consists of a lightweight insulating concrete forming system made from EPS (expanded polystyrene) blocks which are tied together with HDPE (high-density polyethylene) ties. The system is biologically safe and will not support combustion.

The concrete is cast in place for non-bearing and bearing walls for foundations, exterior above grade walls, sound walls, retaining walls and radius walls.

Electricians and plumbers love the ICF system as fixtures are simply set into chases which are cut into the foam after the concrete has set.

This is a view down the cavity between the blocks. The rebar and ties reinforce the concrete and provide fixings for the interior and exterior finishes.

Surface finishing couldn’t be easier as drywall is easily attached with drywall screws or an EPS compatible adhesive and screws. Exterior Stucco is adhered directly to the foam while wood, plastic and metal cladding is simply fastened to plastic ties.
