The focus of today's property owners, designers, building developers and contractors is to build environmentally sustainable buildings, using the latest energy efficient building materials. Improving the thermal performance of the building envelope with an insulated concrete form wall system is the easiest, most immediate and cost-effective way to reduce energy costs.

Projects specifying the NUDURA ICF wall system provide much greater potential for saving valuable environmental resources, reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions, two major factors facing today’s commercial and residential buildings. NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms can make a valuable contribution towards meeting the high standards under programs such as the LEED® program, Equilibrium Housing®, Healthy Housing®, Energy Star® for New Homes and more.
 
 
Recycled Materials: NUDURA Forms are manufactured from EPS insulation, which is a safe, healthy building material. EPS has no off-gassing, is non toxic, and no CFC’s are used during production of this product. It is also 100% recyclable. NUDURA’s uniquely designed folding web is manufactured from 100% recycled polypropylene and steel.

Building Durability: NUDURA Forms offer a structure built out of Concrete, one of the most durable building materials available. This results in buildings that stand the test of time, and also offer a superior level of fire protection. Building with NUDURA also offers maximum safety in hurricane and tornado prone areas due to its high impact resistance.

Waste Reduction: NUDURA Insulated Concrete Form technologically form design creates less waste during the construction process, sending less waste to our landfills. *All waste is 100% recyclable.

Mold Resistant: NUDURA Forms have been laboratory tested and will not support mould growth.

Energy Performance: NUDURA Forms combined with other energy efficient construction methods significantly reduce the amount of carbon emissions produced. This is due to the structure’s high energy efficiency levels, which reduces the amount of fossil fuels needed for heating and cooling. Also, due to the long life span of this system (easily several hundred years compared to less than 80 years for wood frame), carbon emissions produced to repair or replace the home are eliminated, further reducing your carbon footprint.

Improved Indoor Air Quality: NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms produce an airtight wall assembly with no cavities or organic building materials. This ensures that moisture will NOT condense and form mold. The end result is a structure that enables the mechanical systems to heat, cool and ventilate the interior more efficiently, creating a healthier living and working environment for the building occupants.
