NUDURA offers several product features that are not available with many other Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) on the market, including:
Forms are shipped to site fully assembled, but with a unique hinged-web design that allows forms to fold flat reducing transportation costs, minimizing on-site storage required, and greatly reducing product damage. NUDURA forms are wrapped in plastic to provide protection against wind, snow, UV damage, etc.
With a large panel size of 18” x 96”, NUDURA products can reduce construction times (and costs!).
Each of NUDURA’s fastening strips are a full 18” height at 8” on center with a patented locking mechanism top and bottom. Forms are locked together during installation with no need for additional tying, gluing, etc. of each layer of ICF, meaning floating & compression during concrete placement is virtually eliminated. Also, full height fastening strips provide continuous attachment points for both interior & exterior finishes.
4-WAY REVERSIBLE INTERLOCK
Forms can be cut/placed in any manner, thereby reducing on-site waste. No left/right corners and NUDURA’s dual-support web design means efficient use of labour/materials ensures project schedules/budgets can be met with NUDURA.
VERSATILE PRODUCT LINE
NUDURA is able to satisfy virtually any above/below grade structural requirements with core thicknesses from 4” to 12” (and greater if needed using unassembled forms with insert webs/web connectors). With products including custom-made radius forms, various height adjuster forms, T-forms in any combination of sizes, etc. NUDURA can be used to create even the most challenging of building designs.
Insulation can be increased beyond NUDURA’s standard forms by using NUDURA Plus-Series Forms or Plus-Series Inserts. Insulation values up to R-48 are readily available with even greater levels of insulation achievable with custom-made options. You can find more information on these products HERE.
A removable/reusable form-ply on one side of the concrete core combined with an EPS panel on the opposing side results in an insulated wall with an exposed concrete face. Applications include elevator shafts, parkades, and architectural feature walls. Often used to maximize access to the thermal mass provided by concrete - lost insulation can be replaced by use of NUDURA Plus-Series Forms. You can find more information on this product HERE.
