Benefits of ICF
ICF (Insulated Concrete Framework) is a cutting-edge construction method that helps you to build better, more comfortable and more energy efficient homes, faster. They are low-energy, regulation-compliant building products designed to save you time, reduce costs and enable you to build top quality homes. ICF is also certified for use in the construction of buildings of up to six stories (18m).
Why choose Stax ICF?
One of our main priorities here at Stax is to help you move into your new home as quickly as possible. Using our product, a team can erect a pair of semi-detached houses from foundation to apex in approximately 12 days, substantially cutting programme time. Walls can be raised in all weather, unlike block based homes which require dry weather to build. Our centrally located factory allows us to deploy materials to any construction site in Ireland in a matter of hours. When you build with Stax, your logistical worries become a thing of the past.
Controlling costs is always a major building concern. Our ICF insulates your home, eliminating the need to purchase and install additional insulation. The lightweight nature of ICF reduces the necessity of using heavy machinery. The speed at which we can build your walls means our houses are built quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively, allowing your overheads to stay competitive.
Stax ICF and our partners at Altherm ICF guarantee the highest standards in quality and NZEB compliance. Our system works to contribute significantly towards an NZEB and A rating for finished homes.
Maximise Health & Safety
Safety is paramount in everything that we do. Stax ICF’s approach offers light and easy to handle material that requires no cranes or other heavy machinery to move material around the site. Combined with a reduced labour pool needed to implement an ICF construction, this adds up to a significantly reduced risk of on-site injury.
Optimise Energy Efficiency
Optimum air-tightness and soundproofing is easily achieved with Stax ICF. Houses built with our ICF products regularly exceed soundproofing standards of >53db and easily surpass air-tightness levels of 3ac/h. In an era of carbon footprints, rising energy bills and growing consumer environmental awareness, house buyers are always looking to decrease energy and fuel consumption. Building with Stax will ensure you have an A2-rated energy efficient home, thanks to the built-in insulation of ICF.
