Benefits of ICF

The ICF System is a modern method of construction that helps you to build better, more comfortable and energy efficient homes, faster. Essentially, they are low-energy, compliant building products which will save you time, reduce costs, and ultimately enable you to build top quality houses – and is also certified for use in the construction of buildings of up to six stories (18m).

ICF products can help you

 

Build Faster And Be More Productive

Highly efficient building is crucial. Using our product, a team can erect a pair of semi-detached houses from foundation to apex in approximately 12 days, substantially shortening programme time. Walls can be done in all weather and logistics is not an issue as our factory is only hours away from any construction site in Ireland.

Reduce Costs

Controlling build costs is always a major project concern. Minimal wastage means Altherm ICF houses are built very competitively.

Stay Compliant

Altherm ICF meets the highest standards in quality and NZEB compliance, and contributes significantly to achieving NZEB and A ratings for finished houses. Homes built with Altherm regularly exceed soundproofing standards of >53db and easily surpass air-tightness levels of 3ac/h.

Maximise Health And Safety On-Site

Safety can never be taken lightly in our industry and Altherm ICF offers many advantages. It is light and easy-to-handle and requires only half the number of labour resources required onsite. And with no heavy machinery like cranes needed to move ICF around the site, this also significantly reduces the risk of on-site injury.

Maintain Quality And Prioritise Energy Efficiency

Optimum air-tightness and soundproofing is easily achieved with Altherm ICF while our proprietary cavity closers can eliminate cold bridging around window and door openings. In an era of carbon footprints and consumer energy awareness, house buyers are always looking to decrease energy usage and spend less on fuel.
