Fox Blocks ICF wall system is an insulated concrete form construction that provides the best solution for passive house design. Fox Blocks create air-tight walls with continuous insulation, superior moisture resistance, and high thermal mass, which are all vital components of a passive house design. Fox Blocks ICF wall system for a passive house design significantly contributes towards a high-performing, energy-efficient, comfortable, and safe home.
Fox Blocks ICF wall system provides better indoor comfort and improves the performance characteristics of a building’s interior environment by eliminating air and moisture intrusion, balanced climate control, and reduction of sound migration for an unparalleled comfort and quiet.
The Fox Blocks ICF wall system performance characteristics will reduce a building’s heating and cooling cost dramatically, and places Net Zero Energy goals within reach, leading to a lifetime of savings.
Fox Blocks ICF wall system has proven to exceed safety, resilience, and durability requirements for Division 03 Concrete requirements; Whole Building Design Guide – Unified Facilities Criteria, and FEMA-ATFP Federal Military and DoD Standards for strength against the elements.
Fox Blocks are available in different configurations to create any design you can envision. Fox Blocks ICF wall system works with all exterior and interior finishes, from EIFS, traditional stucco, brick, stone, composite or fiber cement siding, drywall, or plaster.
The benefits of Fox Blocks insulated concrete forms provide durable, strong, and energy-efficient wall systems that resist lateral forces from the earth and wind, cracking, moisture intrusion, and cold/heat transfer.
An advantage of Fox Blocks is that the ICF wall system is disaster-resistant. Fox Blocks with steel reinforced concrete can withstand tornado or hurricane wind pressures exceeding 200 mph, and projectile debris traveling over 100 mph.
Fox Blocks ICF wall system is fire-resistant and ASTM E119 rated. Fox Blocks are also termite resistant when installed with the properly applied WDO protective membrane.
Fox Blocks ICF construction is durable, healthy, and an energy-efficient wall system that environmentally conscious architects and builders lead with.
