Insul-Deck Compliments TF Forming Systems' Insulated Concrete Forms

By on 8/3/2016
ICF Construction with Insul-Deck Flooring and RoofingInsul-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.

Insul-Deck offers the best way to build an efficient floor and/or roof system by offering a finished product that has an R-value of R-10 to R-25 depending on the thickness of foam. This allows a builder to utilize Insul-Deck anywhere cast concrete is desired to span a gap, and simultaneously benefit from a high R-value of insulation.  Insul-Deck is great for living spaces, as roof systems and underneath garages where pre-cast concrete would need to be insulated after installation at an additional cost and inconvenience.  With Insul-Deck, a great deal of insulation is built right into the form, so a highly efficient and energy saving project is a guarantee.

One of Insul-Deck’s greatest qualities is how highly applicable it is. While other spanning floors are usually made of pre-casted concrete and set in place with a crane, Insul-Deck is made of foam panels that lock together and act as a form for poured concrete. This allows all of Insul-Decks’ components to be lifted into place by hand, making it ideal for places that don’t easily accommodate big equipment. It can be utilized basically anywhere pre-cast concrete is needed and it installs easily with a small crew. It can span up to 30 feet with proper building techniques.
