IntegraSpec Launches its new IntegraFB product line!!!

IntegraSpec launches its new IntegraFB product line!!! We are very pleased to announce the formal launch of our new IntegraSpec Foam Board line -"IntegraFB".

The IntegraFB are foam boards made of very high quality expanded polystyrene [EPS] and available in various thicknesses / R-values, sizes and low to extremely high compressive strength. Over the years, we have had some requests for insulating foam boards and, even if our IntegraSpec panels can be also be used under concrete slabs or in retrofit applications; the IntegraFB product line now provides a more cost efficient solution to insulating almost everything and in any type of construction and / or renovations such as: footings, floors, walls, ceilings & roofs, driveways, pools, patios, garages, slab on grade, warehouses, factories, coolers, freezers, barns, pet shelters, man caves and the list goes on!

Another exciting product is our "IntegraFB HydroPx", which is a specially designed shape molded foam board for insulating hydronic / radiant heated concrete slabs. The foam boards incorporate a pattern of foam protrusions for the easy placement and fast securing (no tying or stapling) of the hydronic plastic tubing (at every 3" [76mm] both ways). This foam board insulation may also be used inverted for providing an air space for Radon gas control under slabs or even for sub floor / retrofit applications.

Also available upon request are laminated EPS foam boards, either with reflective foil (one or both sides) or with an air barrier which can be ordered in various thicknesses / R-values and compressive strengths.

Architectural shapes such as columns, trim, corbel, decorative parts of various shapes may also be accommodated as special orders.

We are really excited with the addition of our IntegraFB (Foam Board) product line which complements our IntegraSpec ICF and therefore completes the Green Building Envelope to maximize the energy efficiency of buildings and to further comply and or exceed LEED - Net Zero - Passive House - Zero Energy Plus requirements / standards.

As always, our mission is to continue to innovate and develop additional products for the global construction industry.

IntegraSpec® had a very exciting booth again this year at the World of Concrete. The design of the booth displayed the many advantages of choosing the most flexible and versatile ICF on the market today.

Attendees were able to see the Integra Difference demonstrated within the open radius cantilever and many other details and projections which uniquely displayed the ease of using this system to enhance the architectural look simply by interchanging panels. The "play" area allowed anyone to flip and reverse panels, interlock webs and view the superior strength with proper fusion within every panel.

IntegraSpec® introduces a video of the Manoir Galleon located at 162 Murray Street, Ottawa, ON.

The video shows concrete placement in an ICF wall of a 6 storey commercial building using a combination of versatile applications such as ECF (Exposed Concrete Face) for the elevator shaft only attainable with IntegraSpec®. It then shows the placement of hollow core slab on top of the IntegraSpec® walls providing the extreme accuracy that most conventional systems find difficult to accomplish.

IntegraSpec® UK introduces a video by A.S. Ballentine Ltd in County Tyrone.

The video shows 94 m3 concrete placed in an ICF wall  within various IntegraSpec® applications. The strength and ease of the IntegraSpec® walls are displayed when considering the simple alignment system required to pour such high lifts at one time even at "T" walls.
