Three Types of Insulated Concrete Forming Systems
Insulated Form types break down into three categories:
Block Systems- a typical block unit is 8" to 16" tall, and 16" to 4' long. They have interlocking edges that stack together similar to Lego blocks.
Panel Systems- are the largest ICF system. These units are 1' to 4' tall and 8' to 12' long.
Plank Systems- are 8" to 12" tall, and 4' to 8' long. The main difference between the panel and the plank system is the assembly method.
