Ambionse Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) provides strong and solid long lasting exterior walls for Residential Homes. Ambionse is energy efficient (R 3.0), acoustically quiet and can provide a fire rating of up to 4 hrs.

An Ambionse wall is constructed from two exterior polystyrene panels spaced apart by plastic bridges. The inner cavity has reinforcing steel both horizontal and vertical placed ready for concreted to be poured to fill the wall.

A good builder can construct with Ambionse and an Engineer will be required to specify the amount and type of reinforcing required for your specific project.
