PERFORMANCE BENEFITS

PERFORMANCE BENEFITS OF NUDURA. BUILDING VALUE INTO YOUR DESIGN.

Buildings today have to be more than just esthetically pleasing, they have to provide benefits. Open the door to a NUDURA building and see how you can enjoy greater comfort, safety, energy efficiency and a healthier and more eco-friendly Insulated Concrete Form building.

Maximum Energy Efficiency

With growing energy costs, building an insulated concrete form structure is more energy efficient and can save you significant amounts of money on a yearly basis and reduce your carbon footprint. NUDURA insulated concrete form walls vastly reduce air infiltration, which greatly optimizes energy performance. When you combine two panels of  2 5/8” EPS foam with the structural strength and thermal mass of concrete a NUDURA insulated concrete form house can provide high R-Values and save you up to 60% in energy costs.

Greater Comfort & Sound Resistance
Outside cold can easily travel through a typical wood-framed wall, causing thermal bridging, and creating uncomfortable cold spots inside your building. Insulated Concrete Form structures built with NUDURA® offer superior performance when it comes to thermal bridging, resulting in even temperatures throughout with reduced drafts and cold spots, which optimizes energy performance.

NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms act as an effective sound barrier, filtering out unwanted noise. NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms dampen sound vibrations from unwanted outside noise, such as, traffic, trains and neighbors. A NUDURA Insulated Concrete Form building creates the ultimate in home comfort.

Safety for the Occupants
NUDURA offers maximum safety with a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours. With a NUDURA Insulated concrete form building, walls are built with steel reinforced concrete and a non-toxic fire retardant expanded polystyrene foam ensuring maximum safety. NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms provide greater impact resistance and will withstand winds of up to 402 kph (250 mph) ensuring that your occupants and building are safe and secure in almost any situation. The strength of the NUDURA wall comes from the solid concrete core.

Long-Term Value
A NUDURA Insulated Concrete Form building is built to last, and retains its value longer. The main structural element in a NUDURA home is reinforced concrete which offers substantially better durability and requires less maintenance and repair over its lifetime compare to wood structures that require regular maintenance over it’s limited life span.
