Durable & Resilient

Quad-Lock ICF construction gives you a strong, steel reinforced concrete structure - the material of choice for large buildings, bridges, and facilities for the armed forces. Quad-Lock buildings offer lifecycles measured in centuries instead of decades and lower risk of costly water damage. Built-in Resilience can qualify owners for insurance discounts in many areas, sometimes worth hundreds of thousands over time!

Healthy, Cozy & Safe

Quad-Lock panels are manufactured from high density, biologically safe, fire retardant, long-lasting expanded polystyrene (EPS) creating healthy & cozy indoor environments. The fire resistance rating of a finished Quad-Lock wall with 8" concrete thickness is 4 hours per tests.

Ultra Energy-Efficient

With Quad-Lock you can build walls with your choice of insulation value, from R-22 to R-59. Choose the optimum Insulation Value depending on your local climate and energy-saving goals. High, continuous insulation combined with low air infiltration and the thermal mass of concrete provide at least 58% better R-Value than most wood-frame walls.

Fast, Simple, Accurate

Quad-Lock Insulating Concrete Forms are infinitely versatile and fast to install, allowing design and construction flexibility unmatched in other types of concrete forming!
