    Increasing Energy-Efficiency in Schools with ICF Construction

    Increasing Energy-Efficiency in Schools with ICF Construction

    Schools built with Fox Block insulated concrete forms (ICF) are energy-efficient, healthy, and comfortable. Building with Fox Block ICF also helps a school achieve U.S. Green Building Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. A LEED-certified school saves communities energy, money, and resources. Builders, architects, and community leaders who choose ICF when constructing a

    Building a Disaster-Resistant School With Insulated Concrete Forms

    Building a Disaster-Resistant School With Insulated Concrete Forms

    The Fox Block insulating concrete form (ICF) is an excellent wall system for a disaster-resistant school. Schools built with Fox blocks ICFs maintain their integrity during winds of over 200 mph and resist flying debris moving over 100 mph. Fox Blocks are also fire-resistant. A smart material choice for a disaster-resistant school is Fox Blocks

    Wind Resistant Buildings: Creating a Solid Design with ICF Blocks

    Wind Resistant Buildings: Creating a Solid Design with ICF Blocks

    Wall systems constructed with Fox Blocks insulated concrete forms (ICFs ) ensure a wind-resistant structure with a strong continuous load path that holds the roof, walls, floors, and foundation together during an intense wind event. Fox Blocks also protect a structure and its occupants from projectile debris flying at over 100 mph during a strong

    Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) Vs. Wood-Frame Construction

    Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) Vs. Wood-Frame Construction

    Insulated concrete forms (ICF) create a more energy-efficient, quiet, and healthy building than one built with wood-frame construction. ICF buildings are also more resistant to disaster, fire, insect, and moisture intrusion than wood-frame structures. Furthermore, builders and architects can avoid the volatility and increasing costs of lumber by utilizing an easy to install ICF wall

    The Advantages of ICF over CMU Construction

    The Advantages of ICF over CMU Construction

    Concrete masonry units (CMU) and insulated concrete form (ICF) walls have several features in common: energy-efficiency, durability, and good indoor environmental quality (IEQ). However, ICF is quicker and easier to install compared to CMU, which saves time and money. CMU and ICF are mass wall systems used in energy-efficient commercial and residential construction. Mass walls provide
