ICF Construction - Lighten the Load on Your Next Home Build
What’s the lightest of these three – steel, wood, or foam? Obviously foam is the answer and this makes TF Forming Systems Vertical Insulated Concrete Forms the answer when a person is ready to build a home without lugging around heavy steel forms or framing material.
Insul-Deck compliments TF Forming Systems Insulated Concrete Forms
Insul-Deck is an insulated, pour-on-site solution to spanning concrete floors and/or roofs. And just like TFs’ Vertical Insulated Concrete Forms, it has many great benefits. Coupling Insul-Deck with TF Forming Systems’ Vertical ICF is the perfect way to build smart and efficient.
Building with TF Forming Systems Insulated Concrete Forms - An Intern's Perspective
I’m an enrolled student in the college of Mechanical engineering at UW-Madison, WI. Starting out here in May, I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew a little bit about ThermoForm ICF's, but not enough to fully give it my trust as a superior product.
Building a Safe Room or a Safe House?
A safe room or panic room is a fortified room that is installed in a private residence or business to provide a safe shelter, or hiding place, for the inhabitants in the event of a break in, home invasion, tornado, terror attack, or other threat. Safe rooms usually contain communications equipment, so that law enforcement authorities can be contacted.
TF Forming Systems is the manufacturer of Vertical Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) which provide an Energy Efficient and Disaster Resistant ICF Building System for residential and commercial buildings. Insulating panels made of expanded polystyrene EPS, extruded polystyrene XPS foam or another variation of insulated or non-insulated panel are used as a form that holds concrete. Plastic rails are used to connect the inside and outside insulating panels to hold them in place during the concrete pour of the ICF construction project. The plastic rails are utilized to attach interior and exterior finishes. Concrete is poured between the panels and the forms stay-in-place creating an Insulated Concrete Form wall system that is energy efficient, disaster resistant and sustainable. TF Forming Systems has set the standard for Vertical Insulated Concrete Forms and ICF building and construction projects.
Why Choose TF Over Other ICF manufacturers? ThermoForm was designed by thinking outside the 'Block'.
Our Insulated Concrete Forms are installed VERTICAL instead of following the traditional horizontal block method, which allows the builder/installer more versatility, speed and ease of construction. It's the original and most widely used VERTICAL ICF. Our revolutionary TransForm insulated wall system brings Insulated Concrete Wall Forms to a whole new level. TransForm is a hybrid system between a regular poured wall form and an ICF. TransForm's unique design keeps all of the insulation on the outside of the wall which allows the system to take full advantage of the Thermal Mass unlike any other ICF on the market. Using lightweight and reusable components the TransForm insulated wall system is a professional form utilized primarily in the commercial construction market. Check out PENSMORE which is one of the largest residential projects by TF Forming Systems utilizing the TransForm building system. We are pioneers in resilient building.
We offer the most innovative state-of-the-art concrete wall systems in the industry, backed by over 20 years of success.
Everyday we work to forge new relationships because we know that the days of building fast, cheap and "like we always have" must end. We realize it is our responsibility to help our clients see the value of dramatically reduced energy usage, smaller landfills, healthy and safe environments.
With a TF Forming Systems' vertical insulated concrete forms home, you can own an energy efficient house that is built to withstand natural and man-made disasters. It's also mold, allergen and termite free!
A common issue with insulated concrete form structures is lack of design flexibility. Not with TF Forming Systems' vertical walls. We developed our systems with the design professional & builder in mind.
