  • Insulated Concrete Forms 

Insulated concrete forms (ICF) are a durable, eco-friendly alternative to standard concrete bricks.   They have become widely used across the USA and Europe, and insulated concrete forms are now available in Oman through Innovation Building.  Made using expandable polystyrene (EPS), ICF is cheaper and reduces construction time as compared to traditional bricks and is ideal for residential, commercial and industrial projects. 

Why Use ICF Blocks?

Shorter construction time

 Lower labour costs

Reduced energy costs

Environmentally friendly

Superior fire resistance

Sound insulation

Able to withstand typhoons, flooding and earthquakes

“Our highest [utility] bill in a month was $110 in summer.  Our neighbors hit $200-300 in August and September.”

The construction process

ICF blocks are delivered to the site as hallow blocks or pairs of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam panels that are locked 15-20 cm apart with molded plastic ties made of polypropylene (PP) regrind resin.   The ICF blocks are stacked together, reinforced with steel rebar and then filled with concrete to create a solid exterior wall. 


ICF blocks can be quickly and easily assembled into any shape even angles, curves and arches achieving all design visions and it does not require specially trained labour.

  

The result is a wall system of unmatched comfort, energy efficiency, strength and noise reduction.
