“Rapid construction, excellent U-values and non weather restricted”
All You Need To Know About Insulated Concrete Formwork
At Midland New Homes we utilise Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) as our prime construction method as it provides so many benefits to both us as a construction company but also to homeowners.
When using ICF on domestic and commercial construction projects you will benefit from much quick construction times and schedules that are not impacted by the weather. In addition to this, ICF provides thermal efficiencies that can provide market leading U-values.
ICF consists of lightweight polystyrene blocks that fit together to create the structure. Concrete is poured in to the cavity and produces an air tight structure that is highly thermal efficient and does not suffer from damp or mould like other modern construction methods can.
Introducing Thermomur 350
We work with the ICF materials that are right for the project, however the Thermomur 350 ICF system is one of our favoured products for domestic construction.
Able to achieve a U-value of less than 0.17 and benefiting from high levels of noise reduction, the Thermomur 350 series is perfect for the modern home.
It is fully compliant with all UK and European regulations and can be used with bricks, render or timber to finish.
Polarwall For Basements and New Builds
Another ICF product that we often use on new builds and basement builds is the every reliable Polarwall. With a wall core measuring between 200mm and 300mm and being made from highly resistant extruded polystyrene, Polarwall is an ideal choice when it comes to ICF building.
