The Advantage ICF System® is now a mainstream building product. Its popularity continues to grow as architects, specifiers, building contractors, and the public at large, become increasingly familiar with the benefits of using Insulating Concrete Forming (ICF) systems in residential and commercial construction projects.
Advantage ICF is a one-piece, stay-in-place, insulating concrete form made of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation. A series of strong plastic web connectors are permanently molded into two EPS panels to create a building block. The integral plastic webs act as the studs in a wall assembly, and are spaced at either 6 or 8 inches on center.
Take a piece of our environmentally friendly EPS, laminate it between two layers of structural oriented strand board, and you have one of the world’s finest insulating building components: an Insulspan® Structural Insulating Panel (SIP).
Insulspan Structural Insulating Panel Systems (SIPS) are used to create a building’s structural wall frame and replace trusses on roof systems to form an extremely energy efficient structural “envelope.”
