Design professionals who have specified TF Forming Systems' forms continue to use it, mainly because they are easy to design with and offer design flexibility. Most architects are introduced to ThermoForm and TransForm when looking for “the ICF system” that provides the owner with the greatest overall value.
However, they continue to use TF Forms because it serves their own needs, which includes:
Rigid polystyrene insulation can easily be shaped to create arches, radius walls, pilasters, step footings, and parapet walls. Stud rails are available in a wide range of lengths and widths, creating variable wall thicknesses and heights to accommodate the design of the steel reinforcement and wall dimensions.

TF Forming Systems can significantly contribute to earning optimized energy, recycled content and local manufacturing points. Our forms offer many other "green" advantages, such as air tight construction and no off-gassing for better control of indoor air quality, minimal construction waste, durable building materials and performance.
ThermoForm and TransForm can be designed to meet non-combustible construction qualifications. ThermoForm offers an STC Rating of 51 (6" concrete wall) for projects needing sound reduction and easily meets requirements specified through ICC’s International Residential and Building Code.
By using TF Forming Systems, you experience ease of construction, minimal waste and optimized material. With either of TF's systems, wall dimensions and heights can easily be designed and constructed to avoid making unnecessary cuts and adjustments on the jobsite, thereby reducing materials.
TransForm and ThermoForm can be used to easily create window and door rough openings and place the reinforcing bar around the opening. Several window and door buck systems are available in wood, metal and plastics to speed up construction and provide solid anchor points for window and door materials.
