ICF ITALIA construction system consists of modular panels made of high density sintered expanded polystyrene, used to build self-supporting "disposable formworks", which allow the construction of load-bearing walls. In addition, ICF Italia company has developed its own "floor" system, called ICF MONOBI, also made up of EPS panels.
ICF ITALIA system consists of modular panels with size 120 × 52.5cm, made of high density sintered expanded polystyrene used to build self-supporting “disposable formwork”, by inserting the appropriate internal spacers.
The structure of the new ICF ITALIA panels, which is the result of recent evolutions and updates to the new construction standards, is such as to comply with all the requirements set by current regulations (in Italy and in Europe) regarding energy saving, anti-seismic safety, acoustics and well-being. To this end, note the conformation of the internal spacer, the only one capable of positioning the reinforcing rods in accordance with the new technical standards on constructions (DM14 / 01/08), while ensuring at the same time anti-seismic safety and durability of the reinforcing rods.
Once assembled, by means of simple construction site operations, these formworks allow the construction of load-bearing walls made of reinforced concrete or “lightly reinforced” concrete, (in compliance with DM14 / 01/2008) already insulated, with variable transmittance values, depending on the thicknesses, from 0.130 to 0.235 w / m2, with thermal shift between 10 and 18 hours, and with an attenuation factor less than 0.030.
