TF Forming Systems
We are more than Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs), we are pioneers in resilient building. Our goal in customer satisfaction is to manufacture durable, affordable, and energy efficient forms for residential and commercial use alike.
TF Forming Systems’ vertical Insulated Concrete Forms were designed from years of previous contracting experience to have the consumer in mind. Vertical ICFs were created to be installed with minimal tools needed and less headaches for man.
This vertical ICF system works much like conventional steel or wood framed walls. The system begins by standing up a corner in a c-channel within the footing. Once the corner is up, inner and outer poly-panels are vertically placed between plastic rail studs. Before the next corner is erected, reinforcing bar is inserted horizontally between inner and outer poly panels and secured to the studs for support. Usually there is a space smaller than a traditional poly panel between the wall and the next corner. When this happens, the space is measured and a poly panel piece is cut to fit the space; this is called a splice. Because the poly panels do not have teeth or grooves to fit onto the plastic rails, splices are easy to add anywhere in a wall. When a wall is finished, a c-channel is placed on top, locking the wall together. The walls are then braced at the corners with kickers. Once all these steps are completed, pouring may begin.
The finished project is a sturdy, energy efficient insulated concrete structure that will withstand the test of time.
