Advantage ICF System


PlastiSpan® Insulation is used in Cathedral Ceiling, Continuous Insulation, Exterior Foundation, Interior Basement Walls, Basement Floor, Under Slab, Hydronic, EIFS and handi-pac Packaging & Display.



Advantage Insulating Concrete Forms can be used in large and small
residential projects as a solution to your wall assembly needs. Our patented
forming system provides 5 steps in 1: Structural strength, studding, vapour
barrier, air barrier and external sheathing resulting in reduced construction
time. Advantage ICF System makes your building energy efficient, quiet and
comfortable. ICF is the fastest growing construction method for both full
home and renovated residential construction.

1. Safe and secure, severe weather resistant
2. Reduced air leakage
3. Comfortable living with consistent temperatures throughout the house
4. Quite Sound transmission Class STC rating > 50
5. Fast, year round construction
6. See attached video to see how to install

The Advantage ICF System is a patented insulating concrete forming system
consisting of two layers of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation connected
with web connectors molded into the EPS insulation. The top and bottom
edges of Advantage ICF System blocks have pre-formed interlocking
mechanisms which ensure web connectors align vertically for attachment of
surface finish materials.

Building with Advantage ICFs provides improved energy efficiency and
effective thermal resistance. The Advantage system also provides a safe and
quiet living, reduced noise transmission and reduced air leakage in the
structure.

Advantage ICFs are used in projects such as residential homes,
recreational homes and cottages, multi-family projects, party walls for
residential projects, industrial buildings and commercial buildings.
