Quad-Lock Insulating Concrete Forms

Why Quad-Lock?

Energy Performance

An R-40 insulation value will get up

to 70% energy savings – high mass

walls keep indoor temperatures

continually moderated.

For Floors

Recyclable Product

Less than 2% on-site waste – all

waste is recyclable.

Less Environmental Impact

Over the lifespan of the structure

– virtually hundreds of years.

No Emissions

No CFCs, HCFCs, no off-gassing.

Superior Indoor Air Quality

No air infiltration – you control the

air exchanges. Sound deadening

– high STC ratings.

Building Durability

For Walls

Impact testing for CAT5 tornado

conditions does no structural

damage. Four-hour fire rating.

For Roofs

And...

Simply a Better Building System

Return on Investment...

Smaller HVAC Sizing

Lower up-front costs.

Government Assistance

Lower Lifetime Costs

Federal & State grant/loan programs for energy savings.

Ongoing costs for operation and maintenance are minimized.

Faster Construction Times

Lower up-front costs.
