ARXX - Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF)

 


ARXX is the recipient of the 2007 ICF Builders Award

ARXX is a member of the Canadian Green Build Council

   
Arxx is the number one Insulating Concrete Wall System in North America. Arxx has the most production facilities, the widest network of distributors, the best support team, and the best product. In fact, Arxx is the only Insulating Concrete Form (ICF) that provides a solid-to-solid attachment for all finishing material (like drywall, siding or brick ties). Our patented, exposed X-web is unique! Arxx is the one with the stripes.

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 Foundation Wrap.

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 day.

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.
