Ideal for load-bearing walls, the double panel ICF system consists of two single panels, shaped as required and joined by double horizontal connectors which create a hollow core that is then filled with concrete and steel reinforced.
The thickness of the concrete inside the ICF double panel, as well as the characteristics of the concrete itself, will be determined according to the structural requirements of the project. The panel is finally completed with the application of the external shotcrete.
Our double ICF panel consists of two single panels and is ideal for reinforced concrete walls such as load-bearing and retaining ones. Perfect for ICF homes and commercial buildings.
The system can be used in precast structures; onsite, in-situ cast structures; and on-site, in-situ spray concrete, depending on your project and needs.
The ICF panels inherent lightness means you can carry it on site by hand, so no cranes are required, saving you both time and money. Its a perfect building method.
The pre-insulated system eliminates thermal bridging for excellent thermal insulation, which helps to reduce energy consumption by limiting the amount of heating and cooling required in a home.
The eco-friendly ICF wall system is easy to build using on-site tools, including apposite adjustable metal supports and aluminium bars or more traditional building site materials such as wooden boards or square timbers. To ensure static continuity to the structure the panels are connected to the frame construction rebars and this can be carried out using suitable equipment or basic site tools such as pliers.
Yes, Insulated Concrete Forms are worth it. They are much quicker to build with which reduces labour costs and when fully constructed they provide excellent energy efficiency and insulation which can save you money on energy bills and keep a home more comfortable.
In many cases, the average home could be built with ICF in under a month. This would include putting up the ICF and then bracing the walls and applying the concrete.
The thickness of a Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) can be defined by your project requirements. SIP panels can be manufactured according to the structural and design requirements of the building.
The panels produced using the EMMEDUE (M2) technology have been used to construct over 1 million buildings all over the world using offsite construction in various ways, from modules through to panels provided for the self-build market.
