DSF ICF Components
The DSF Insulated Concrete Form system consists of Foam-Control® EPS with Perform Guard insulation and Diamond Snap-Tie connectors. DSF ICF comes as compact components – ties and insulation planks. These are easy to handle and less expensive to ship. They occupy only 45% of the volume of typical “block” ICF systems.
Foam-Control EPS foam or expanded polystrene. Cost effective thermal design is among the highest priorities in construction. Thermal resistance (R-value) of an insulation assembly is the determining factor in thermal performance. Foam-Control EPS provides optimum cost value when compared to other rigid insulations of the same R-value design.
Our Diamond Snap-Form is available with Foam-Control EPS with Perform Guard® which has a proven and safe additive, that effectively resists termites and meets building code. Perform Guard is made by a process that incorporates a termite resistant additive into the insulation during the manufacturing process. The additive is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for this application. Foam-Control EPS with Perform Guard has been thoroughly tested, is safe for handling, and noncorrosive. And termites hate it.
The Diamond Snap-Tie connector creates a cavity for the concrete between two faces of the insulation planks. Diamond Snap-Tie connectors come in the following half tie and full tie sizes: 6″, 8″, and 10″.
