At the core of any Insulated Concrete wall design is the quest for energy efficiency. Without sacrificing the superior strength of reinforced concrete, TF has succeeded in creating two products that maximize thermomass benefits for any building type.
Polystyrene is used in both of our products and acts as a barrier to extreme outdoor temperatures. By insulating the concrete, we allow the concrete core temperature to remain constant, preventing indoor temperatures from being affected by seasonal temperature fluctuations. This translates into minimal heating and cooling costs.
TF's latest product launch, TransForm, applies innovative green technologies that can allow a structure to achieve the coveted status of energy neutrality.
