Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)

Customers are now able to purchase not only the quality concrete Mayco produces, and the professional pumping services of Challenge Concrete Pumping; but also a comprehensive forming system versatile enough to handle any job from residential homes, foundation to the roof, to commercial tilt up warehouses with minimal fuss and experience.

The Benefits of ECO-Block ICF's:

  • Environmentally friendly: Use of wood products in construction significantly reduced.
  • Energy Efficient: Provides superior insulation, reducing heating/cooling costs and creating a virtual air/vapour barrier.
  • Sound suppressing: The interior rooms are effectively shielded from outside noise.
  • Quickly constructed: One house per day with a four man crew.
  • Extremely strong: Walls are "cast-in-place," monolithic, reinforced concrete.
  • Versatile: Any interior or exterior finish can be applied.
    Fire-Retardant: Up to a four-hour Fire Resistive Rating.

Offering coast-to-coast production capabilities, a comprehensive product line that includes integrated bracing/scaffolding and great customer service, ECO-Block was the perfect match for Mayco's corporate values.

Healthy Homes
Due to our diverse northern climate with long winters and hot, muggy summers, Canadians spend a lot of time indoors.

Natural and man-made pollutants affect the quality of the indoor air that we breathe. Some well known offenders include mould and mildew typically found in traditional wall systems and poorly filtered forced air heating systems that circulate dust in the home.

This healthier home is designed with a proper air filtration and fresh air exchange system, in-floor radiant heating and superior insulated walls.

Heating and cooling bills will be much less than you'd expect. Drafts will be virtually eliminated and carbon dioxide emissions from your heating unit will be greatly reduced.

The ECO-Block walls act as an energy reservoir that reduces temperature fluctuations and energy transfer. Because of their high thermal mass, ECO-Block walls provide energy efficiency equivalent to a wood-frame wall of R-40, to as high as R-50, depending on your geographical location.
