The
SuperForm
Standard

SuperForm products are designed to
withstand everything North America’s
varied landscape and unique climate
has to offer.

When SuperForm Products was established in 1998, quality was the number one priority. The founders wanted to create a product that could withstand the hydrostatic pressures of concrete. Thick red ties every 6” created from virgin material and leaders in the corner tie/corner fastening were all features that lead to our quality commitment. Today that is still our vision and we hold ourselves accountable to the SuperForm Standard through our dedication and passion for quality, continuous improvement and excellent customer service. We want to build a better future by upholding our values, creating trusting relationships and providing a safe and healthy working environment for our people, customers and vendors.

Benefits and Features
of SuperForm Products

User-friendly

The SuperForm ICF system completes all 6 major building steps into one process.

For builders, ICF incorporates concrete, steel reinforcement, insulation, air barrier, vapor barrier and attachment points into one easy step, saving significant time and resources.

  • Continuous Insulation
  • Wall Structure (rebar & concrete)
  • Forming System
  • Air Barrier
  • Vapour Barrier
  • Interior & exterior attachment points

Disaster Resilience

The strength of Superform ICF from the solid concrete. In our forms, concrete is cured in a perfect environment; making it 30% stronger than regular convention concrete walls. Our 12’ block also gives Engineers and Builders more rebar options. This creates one of the strongest walls available today.

Superform provides high impact resistance and with stands up to 400km/h (250 mph) winds ensuring your safety inside your building.

Fireproof
In firewall tests, SuperForm ICF stood exposure to intense flame without structural failure. The extremely low flame spread and smoke development results in up to a 4 hour fire protection. FIRE SPECS SuperForm performing at such an incredible level makes it an easy choice for your build. Whether its fire, tornado, hurricane, high winds, Superform will stand the test of Mother Nature. SuperForm saving homeowner and building owners from rebuilding their projects.

Unmatched Comfort

SuperForm ICF brings you confidence and peace of mind knowing you are creating a home or space with unmatched comfort. With continuous dense insulation and the solid concrete core, you receive the most air tight building envelope available. This eliminates drafts or cold spots resulting in a neutral temperature in your home all year round, more matter what mother nature throws at you.

Indoor Air Quality
Maintaining a healthy environment is essential in any indoor space and SuperForm ICF provides a wall system that greats helps this out. Our walls reduce air infiltration by 75%, increasing air quality in your home. Indoor pollution is a huge concern today and SuperForm ICF is free of all toxins, CFC’s, HFC’s, HCFC’s and formaldehyde and is almost completely free of any emissions.

Sound Proof
SuperForm ICF Builds provide unparalleled peace and quiet and true protection from outside noise. SuperForm has a STC of 54, allowing less than one-third as much sound to pass through than regular frame walls. in the busyness of life, you can stay content knowing you are not hearing the outside world from the cozy home.

Maximum Energy Efficiency

The building industry is getting tighter and demanding more out of our buildings.
With effective R-values of over R40, SuperForm ICF offers better energy solutions for any structure. Studies have proven that Superform ICF has 58% better R-value than conventional wall systems, resulting in 60% in energy savings. This is achieved by the thermal mass of the concrete, superior air tightness, and continuous insulation on both sides of the wall assembly.

Thermal Mass
Thermal mass in ICF is the ability of a concrete to absorb and store heat energy. A lot of heat energy is required to change the temperature of high-density materials like concrete. Concrete has extremely high thermal mass. As outside temperatures fluctuate, the concrete core sandwiched between 2 layers of insulations, slows down
or delays the temperature changes immensely.

Air tight Structure
Superform ICF creates a much more “airtight” building than any other construction method. The average home has enough holes in the insulation that adds up to the size of a basketball. The continuous EPS insulation eliminating any holes and acting as an Air Barrier. A second feature is the solid concrete core which also acts as an air barrier. The result is an extremely airtight home.

Thermal Bridging
Thermal Bridging is one of the biggest problems with traditional construction today(wood or bare concrete). Superform ICF has continuous insulation on both sides of the wall, eliminating 100% any thermal bridging. The combination of these 3 elements together SuperForm ICF achieved a thermal transmittance of 0.260 m²K/W (0.046 ft²·hr·°F/BTU)and a thermal resistance of 3.70 W/m²K (21.0 BTU/ft²·hr·°F)

Long Term Value

Superform insulated building solutions are designed to be cost effective and competitive, providing maximum value for every dollar. SuperForm products are designed as all-in-one systems with unique design features facilitating a quick easy build, saving you significant time and labour. . Yet, since the structure is built with concrete and a Insulation that doesn't break down, off gas, or lose R value over time, your building will outlast every building out there. It also adds better durability and less maintenance or repairs in its lifetime.

Rot/Mold Free

Superform is 100% rot and mold free. For mold or mildew to be able to grow, three conditions must be met. The first, that their spores must be present, is guaranteed, as it’s impossible to prevent them from traveling. The second item—humidity above 50%–has already been addressed. The third factor is the presence of a food source. Additionally, SuperForm foam’s resistance to mold or fungal growth is not due to any special additive. Unlike wood or drywall which is treated with pesticides and chemicals to make it rot resistant, ICFs are naturally mold-proof.

Contractors

SuperForm ICF helps you maximize both your time and your budget. Our wall system is easy to install and incorporates six construction steps into one, saving you valuable time and effort on the job-site, allowing you to finish jobs faster without sacrificing quality. SuperForm ICF is the strongest insulated concrete form in the industry, ensuring your builds have the quality materials required to stand the test of time and giving you peace of mind during concrete placement. With SuperForm ICF you’ll lighten the load for your crew, be able to work through adverse winter conditions, and move on to the next job faster than ever.
