The future is in Nearly Zero Energy Buildings, and industry leaders are advocating the use of new and innovative construction materials in order to meet the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive.

Altherm ICF is one of the innovations created by the industry in direct response to the demand for change and aims to change the built environment. This Irish made, NZEB-ready Insulated Concrete Formwork system consists of two EPS panels spaced apart by high strength polypropylene webs. This system forms a fully insulating, permanent shuttering mould into which concrete is poured. Its many advantages mean that ICF is becoming an increasingly popular choice across all kinds and size of build.

Once cast, the concrete core not only provides the necessary structure for the building with the structure’s lifetime durability, but also integrates with the ICF to provide superior sound insulation and with U-values of 0.20/m2k being easily achievable, all adhering to the latest fire safety standards.

At less than 3.5kg each, the forms are a user-friendly system to build, with all of the related handling and safety benefits. Due to its innovative design, this increases speed of construction, reduces waste and meets the standards of the Building Regulations 2019 Part L – Conservation of Fuel and Energy.

The powerful combination of the patented, reversible interlock, EPS composition, innovative web design and web spacing result in a simple, strong framework system that requires less support during installation. The result is straight, flat and plumb walls and minimal wastage.

Altherm ICF is certified by the Irish Agrément Board for use up to 6 storeys. European Technical Assessment ETA-18/0752 has been issued for Altherm ICF. BBA Agrément Certification
