Using Custom Forms to Meet Design Requirements

by NUDURA Blogger | Jun 27, 2016

At NUDURA, we will still receive questions or comments about how ICFs, as shape-molded forms, can satisfy architects’ custom designs. We know that every building comes with many sets of circumstances and different conditions that may require a specialty block or two. We’ve developed our forms with that knowledge top-of-mind. Here’s a quick breakdown of a few of our different specialty forms and accessories, and when you might use them:45Form_sm

Corner forms: Ninety-degree and/or 45-degree corner forms are necessary for almost any design.

Taper-top forms: If your project requires additional bearing to support a floor system, these forms will allow concrete to flow to the interior and exterior edges.

Brick ledge forms: Support the heavy loads of brick and nearly any other type of cladding material with these forms.

T Forms Stacked_smT-form units: These units enable T-walls to marry into the face of a wall. A subdividing wall between two semi-detached houses, or between a residence and a garage, could be facilitated by a T-form unit.

End caps: End caps enable the wall to terminate at an end condition. For example, end cap can be used to provide an insulated break at the window condition

Height adjusters: If the design calls for a unit to terminate at a specific level, height adjuster can be inserted to easily satisfy that condition.
