Insulated concrete forms (ICF) are being rapidly adopted around the world as an energy efficient, fast track and a cost effective structural wall system. This building method has been used in Europe and North America for many years for structures ranging from retaining walls and residential construction to commercial and high rise buildings. The Formcraft wall system uses permanent formwork panels to form steel reinforced concrete walls. Once the concrete hardens, you have a wall system that outperforms traditional construction methods.
The FormPro® ICF wall system wall system has been expanded to enable the options of using 8 mm Fiber Cement (FC) board instead of 60 mm EPS panels on one or both sides of the formed concrete walls. The ability to use combinations of EPS and FC panels in the FormPro® wall system broadens the scope for construction of walls with a range of R values, sound transmission coefficients, fire ratings and overall thicknesses for different structural applications.
Formcraft Pty Ltd was set up to innovate, develop and supply best of breed construction systems to world markets. Design and development continues to provide some exciting new elements to the Formcraft Construction System.The company has and strong R and D focus and has successfully commercialised proprietary concrete formwork systems used to form super structures that are fast track, pre-finished, insulated and economical.
Design and development continues to provide some exciting new elements to the Formcraft Construction System. They now result in a single building element that meets fire, acoustic, thermal and structural code requirements, while also offering a range of finished surfaces.
FormPro® is acknowledged as the most technologically advanced ICF wall system in Australia, because of its innovative design and technical features that set it apart from other ICFs. Since its introduction in 2004, it has become the ICF of choice for projects ranging from single storey residential to mine camps and multi-story hotels.
