InfinityICF (insulated concrete form) block is made from EPS (expanded polystyrene), which is molded into a 4 inch long x 1 inch high x 9.6 inch wide building block. Once the blocks are snapped together and fitted with steel rebar reinforcements, they produce the concrete forms into which the concrete is poured for all the exterior walls including the foundation and basement. Hence, this structure replaces what is commonly a wooden frame, providing a more environmentally friendly and a much stronger structure. Structural Integrity is a key to infinity structures building system.
This polystyrene (styrofoam) application is great not only because it provides the highest quality construction, but also because of its longevity. These polystyrene blocks (concrete forms) conveniently remain as part of the foundation and wall structure in the home to provide incredible insulation in the 10-11 feet finished wall without depleting the environment.
Knowing that your home or building structure is incredibly strong, water, fire, and projectile resistant, amazingly energy efficient and virtually maintenance free creates a peace of mind, which is an irreplaceable Value of Quality.

Features of InfinityICF block, collectively, result in a building system which is incomparable to anything else in the industry.

InfinityICF - Description - Infinity Structures Inc

Better than a solid poured concrete wall our Post and Beam Grid-wall is made up of six inch diameter cores of concrete that sit bother vertically as posts on 9.6 inch centers and horizontally as beams on 12 inch centers. Once the blocks are stacked and the reinforcement bar placed, concrete is poured into the wall, which once hard, provides a steel reinforced concrete, post and beam grid-wall that remains encapsulated in EPS.


InfinityICF - Construction - Infinity Structures Inc

Starting at the corners of the structure and working towards the center, mark on the center lines the locations of each vertical rebar to be placed, these locations represent the center of the vertical cores to be reinforced. Window and door bucks are anchored by imbedding 1/2 inch x 8 inch J anchor bolts in a countersunk manner through the buck and tied to the corresponding horizontal rebar and into the horizontal cores.


InfinityICF - Energy Facts - Infinity Structures Inc

Houses built with ICF exterior walls require an estimated 44% less energy to heat and 32% less energy to cool than comparable frame house; the bigger the house the bigger the savings. Insulations values for ICF walls using polystyrene foam are R-17 to R-26 compared to wood frame?s R-9 to R-15. It keeps the walls of the house a little warmer when outdoor temperature hits its coldest extreme.
