Large stocks and UK manufacture ensures reliable delivery across the UK.
What makes ICF Insulated Concrete Formwork better than traditional construction methods?
PolyBlok ICF is designed to form insulated, fireproof, sound resistant, draughtproof, indestructible walls that are easy to build and last a lifetime.
The rigidity of our ICF forms, their simple installation and no need for complicated propping systems is why PolyBloks make ICF simple.
ICF Made Simple.
Our ICF PolyBloks are delivered ready made and do not require assembly unlike some other ICF forms which require complex kits and spare parts. The steel ties, precision tongue & groove jointing system and high tensile wire clips ensure simple and trouble free installation and concreting.
Our insulated cement forms can be used for almost any type of structure because ICF PolyBloks are so suitable to being reinforced. They can be formed into curved walls or used to provide spectacular cantilevers that Architects love to provide in modern eye-catching residences.
Our PolyBlok ICF is certified for the use of plain concrete, therefore reinforcement is not required to build a normal house. When reinforcement is necessary, the rigidity of these ICF insulated concrete forms makes them uniquely suitable to compact the concrete with a vibratory poker. This is essential to remove any air that could rust the steel bars.
Better than traditional methods.
Traditional construction such as timber frame and cavity walls have significant disadvantages that are easily overcome or completely avoidable when using insulated cement forms.
Most architects and engineers are still unfamiliar on how to fully utilise the benefits of Insulated Concrete Formwork in project planning. The complexity of some ICF systems only makes this more difficult. Our ICF design services make full use of ICF advantages and ensure builders have all necessary information to quickly build and finish their projects.
Certified UK Manufacture.
PolySteel ICF Insulated Concrete Formwork is provided with a BBA (British Board of Agrément) certificate that ensures all buildings incorporating our ICF forms will be accepted by the NHBC (National House Building Council) and similar building insurance schemes.
ICF Insulated Concrete Formwork is ideal for novice & experienced builders. Buildings can be waterproofed within weeks, entire streets can be erected quickly and all ensuing trade visits completed sometimes in a single visit.
COMMERCIAL & AGRICULTURAL
Commercial, Industrial & Agricultural
ICF is ideal for the rapid construction of very economic buildings. In many instances the steel columns and their expensive foundations can be omitted and replaced with a few reinforcing bars in the insulated concrete form walls.
BASEMENTS & POOLS
Basements & Pools
Insulated cement forms are ideal for the design and construction of basements and basement swimming pools. The walls are easy to waterproof, quick to construct and do not need a team of highly skilled/costly tradesmen.
RETAINING WALLS & SMALL STRUCTURES
Retaining Walls & Garden Buildings
Insulated concrete form walls are ideal for the self-builder to construct garden offices, sound studios, garages, indoor swimming pools and retaining walls without the need for expensive bricklayers and carpenters
