Build Faster and Better With Arxx
Arxx is the stay-in-place concrete form designed by builders,
for builders. It is the complete wall building system. Arxx
forms are lightweight, pre-assembled, and lock together. We
provide the widest product selection in the industry, so you
can build walls and foundations in any shape, size, or design
you can imagine.
Arxx forms are 16¾" high, so six courses stack
to a finished ceiling height of 8'1". Add another row
of 12" high forms, and you get a 9'1" finished basement.
It’s easy. You can protect the foundation with our peel-and-stick
moisture barrier, or use our premium damp proofing, Arxx Maxx
Better Foundations and Walls
An Arxx basement is more comfortable. It’s more comfortable
than a concrete block basement. It’s more comfortable
than regular poured concrete. Why? Because Arxx is the number
one Insulating Concrete Wall System in North America. It is
built with a reinforced concrete core sandwiched between two
layers of expanded polystyrene foam insulation.
Arxx walls can virtually eliminate the “cold spots”
that occur in conventional frame walls, because your home
is wrapped in two continuous layers of foam insulation. An
Arxx home has 33% to 50% less air infiltration than a conventional
frame house, so uncomfortable drafts are virtually eliminated.
The solid concrete core of an Arxx wall stabilizes the temperature
because of its thermal mass. So homeowners get constant temperatures,
even when the outdoor temperature fluctuates throughout the
With its high R-values, low air infiltration, and high thermal
mass, you can reduce your initial building costs by installing
a smaller HVAC system. Plus, the homeowner can save up to
50% of their monthly heating and cooling costs (depending
on the region) compared to a conventional home.
