Aerated Concrete Blocks

Aerated concrete blocks have been used in Europe for more than 50 years. It has gained in popularity throughout the rest of the world and has had a large presence in the Far and Middle East for the past 30-40 years and, to a lesser extent, in Australia and South America for the past 20 years. The manufacture of AAC is also on the increase in China and plants are under construction in India. The world’s current greatest producer of AAC is Russia. Undoubtedly the areas of massive growth potential are China, India and North America. Like typical concrete blocks, aerated concrete is strong, fire resistant and good sound insulation. However, aerated concrete is also lightweight and energy efficient. Aerated concrete was brought to the U.S. by Hebel Southeast, a German company with offices in Atlanta, Georgia.
The energy efficiency of aerated concrete blocks compares well with other concrete blocks for three reasons. First, the insulating value of a standard 8-in. block is R-11, considerably more than typical block. Second, the blocks thermal mass can moderate temperature swings. This is most useful in climates with high cooling needs. Third, the block wall is inherently airtight. Blower door results show an air leakage rate of 2.6 air changes per hour at 50 pascals.
The material is cost competitive with wood framing. In addition to being lightweight, the blocks can be cut with a handsaw. Channels for pipes and wires are cut with an electric router. All these features add up to a product that's easy to use and energy efficient.

SafeCrete Blocks and panels, made from autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC), are noncombustible, inorganic, dimensionally accurate and durable. The cellular structure of the material provides remarkable thermal and sound insulation. Build a safe, efficient, permanent home with autoclaved aerated concrete. Cellular Structure is created by the unique manufacturing process. Millions of tiny air cells give SafeCrete amazing insulating properties, reducing heating and cooling costs by as much as half. Thermal Mass Inertia slows the transfer of heat through the wall. SafeCrete walls are typically 8 to 10 inches thick. The sheer mass of the wall causes heat to pass through more slowly. In temperate climates, this lag time allows the HVAC system to compete against the average temperature of the day, rather than the peak temperature. SafeCrete block is an excellent building material for residential construction. The light weight and workability of SafeCrete enable quick and safe installation. Excellent thermal properties benefit homeowners for the entire life of the home. SafeCrete block is available in a range of sizes. Size should be selected based on design, thermal, and sound absorption requirements. The comprehensive website has house plans online. www.safecrete.com

Aerated Concrete Corporation of America has a comprehensive website with lots of information on their products and the engineering specifications. They make concrete blocks and panels. You can see photos of many of their projects--most of them are commercial. Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) has been used for close to 70 years and in 28 countries around the world. AAC is a dynamic, single component building system that is a mixture of Portland cement, quicklime, sand, aluminum powder and water. The complex chemical production process results in a concrete matrix that is ideally suited for use in the construction industry. ACCOA's panels and blocks can be used to construct complex systems for floors, walls and roofs.

E-Crete AAC blocks are solid with no coves. E-Crete buildings are very energy efficient due to a combination of high R-value, thermal mass and air-tightness. E-Crete’s excellent insulation qualities greatly reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling compared to most conventional systems. Better temperature and humidity control provide greater comfort and cost savings. www.e-crete.com

The Contec Building System includes masonry components like blocks, floor and roof slab panels, wall panels, staircase steps and lintels made out of AAC, for a wide variety of construction applications. Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is similar to the material formerly known as cellular concrete. AAC is designed as a lightweight product consisting of calcareous materials, such as cement and/or lime and siliceous fine materials, such as quartz, sand, and water to form a homogenous cell structure. The cellular structure is attained by the inclusion of microscopic voids originating from a chemical reaction. Autoclaving is used for final curing of the material. Contec Building System makes Standard Blocks, Semi-Jumbo Blocks and Jumbo Blocks and Panels. They are produced by in two different strength classes. The blocks are used to build both load bearing and non-load bearing masonry walls. www.thermacrete.com

ICF--Insulating Concrete Form Systems

 

The Insulating Concrete Form Association has a site where you can learn much about the advantages of building with ICF construction. Their mission is to promote the use of ICFs, and to promote ICF industry growth. They offer online answers to many home buyers and builders questions. The ICF Association also sell s books online like the fully illustrated field manual for building concrete homes with insulating concrete forms. Step-by-step instructions describe: planning and design; job logistics and site preparation; setting forms and placing concrete; connecting to roof and floors; utility installation; interior build-out; installing fixtures and finishes. www.forms.org

Fold-Form ICF's from Owens Corning--This insulated concrete forming system is hollow foam blocks stacked into walls and filled with reinforced concrete. It is a foundation

ARXX Building Products -The Arxx Wallsystem consists of interlocking, lightweight, expanded polystyrene forms. Designed to be an integral part of the wall, the forms remain in position after the concrete is placed. The insulating capacity of expanded polystyrene coupled with the structural integrity of reinforced concrete is a powerful combination — it makes Arxx walls stronger, safer, quieter and more energy efficient. Arxx walls meet or exceed standards set by building codes. Arxx walls stand up to the forces of time and nature. The structural integrity of steel-reinforced concrete provides exceptional protection from hurricanes and tornadoes. Arxx walls are fire-resistant too. Arxx walls provide exceptional insulation and this means significant ongoing savings to building owners and increased comfort to the people who live and work in Arxx buildings. These ICF walls can provide thermal performance values equivalent to, or better than, R-50 wood-frame construction. Nice website had much info--lots of it in downloadable .pdf files. www.arxxbuild.com

ReddiForm, Inc. was founded in 1990 to develop, manufacture and market the patented ReddiForm insulated concrete form wall system. ReddiForm is an expanded polystyrene stay-in-place concrete form used to build insulated concrete foundations and walls.
ReddiForm insulating concrete form (ICF) is made from expanded polystyrene (EPS) molded into lightweight foam blocks. The foam itself provides excellent insulation with an R value of R-21. The R-value of EPS remains constant. (R-values of traditional fiberglass insulation decreases when the material is wet or damaged.) In addition to the inherent insulation value of the EPS foam, the thermal performance is enhanced by the thermal mass effect of the concrete and the absences of air infiltration in walls constructed with ReddiForm. The combination of the heavy concrete mass and the foam surrounding it stores heat in the winter. In the summer it moderates the rise in the indoor temperature as the outdoor temperature increases during the day. In the cool of the evening, heat stored in the concrete is radiated back to the outside atmosphere. ReddiForm with Modified Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam because of its fire performance, structural performance, and environmental advantages. Modified EPS contains no formaldehydes or toxic chemicals, and uses fewer resources to manufacture than other insulation products. www.reddiform.com

The Amvic Building System is regarded as one of the highest quality ICF system on the market . Your wall is only as strong as the weakest link. That comes right down to how well each individual form is interlocked together. The Amvic Building System features the FormLockTM interlocking system- allowing forms to be locked easily to build a wall regardless of which direction the form is placed. It saves time and money, and the job is done right the first time. Insulated concrete forms combine close celled expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation with the terrific performance of concrete's thermal mass to give you 30-50% savings in your heating and air conditioning costs. Nothing blows through reinforced concrete. Covered EPS does not settle or deteriorate. There is no food value for termites in an Amvic wall. Outside winds do not effect inside comfort. Gone are those uncomfortable winter drafts and huge areas of heat loss or gain from electrical boxes. ICF structures built from footing to rafter typically have their floor joists hung by engineered systems so that you have a full height reinforced insulated concrete wall. Huge savings in heat loss are now possible by eliminating drafts that are typically found where conventional floor joists rest on foundation walls. It is commonplace for someone living in a home built with an Amvic ICF envelope to be completely surprised when venturing outside into gale force winds.
Concrete filled insulated concrete forms provide exceptional sound attenuation. Their walls achieve an STC rating of 50 plus which basically makes outside noise inaudible inside. Walls built with Insulating Concrete Forms have a three-hour plus fire rating. Amvic forms are among the easiest to install, reducing the labor costs when building your dream home. Each 1-inch piece can be reused in the wall saving you additional forms costs and disposal costs. Incomparable packaging ensures that our product arrives intact. In addition, many Amvic home owners enjoy flexible financing through Energy Efficient Mortgages (EEMs) and reduced insurance costs over stick-frame construction.
Concrete Building Systems--ICF AmvicTheir website includes a built in estimating program to help you calculate the expected costs. Amvic, along with select distributors, offers training programs to ensure the success of your ICF installation. The program covers the basics of ICF construction from footing to rafter including floor and roof connections, consolidation, proper rebar placement and much more. Amvic debuted with much anticipation at the 1999 NAHB show.

Quad-Lock Insulated Concrete Forms--Quad-Lock is a lightweight, insulating, stay-in-place concrete forming system ("insulating concrete form" or "ICF"). A Quad-Lock wall is stronger, more soundproof, more resistant to natural disasters, rot, and termites, better insulated (superior R-value) and, therefore, more energy efficient; it reduces air infiltration and benefits from the thermal mass of the concrete keeping inside temperatures more even. The price of building varies depending upon freight. Quad-Lock ICF and this method of concrete construction are competitively priced with stick-frame and other traditional wall systems. Quad-Lock is code approved but final acceptance is up to local codes. Quad-Lock ICF system forms solid, flat, monolithic concrete walls.
With Quad-Lock you can build walls up to a true R-Value of 40. According to the manufacturer, the Quad-Lock ICF Building System can save as much as 80% on heating & cooling costs.The thermal mass of the concrete combined with the EPS insulation keeps you warm when it's cold outside and keeps you cool when it's hot outside. Quad-Lock construction gives you a solid concrete wall - your choice of 4 to 12 inches thick without foam tunnels through the concrete. No thin/thick sections.The Quad-Lock system is infinitely versatile, allowing design and construction flexibility unmatched in other types of forming. Quad-Lock can easily be shaped to form openings, arches, corners, any angles, and real curves with almost any radius. Using combinations of Quad-Lock Panels and Quad-Lock Plus Panels three different Insulation Values are possible, giving you the choice of true R-Values of 22, 32, and 40. Quad-Lock's unique and patented tie design offers a lower likelihood of blowouts by positively connecting the EPS panels at both the horizontal and vertical seams where the pressure during concrete placement is most likely to cause failures. Your local dealer can answer your questions, prepare detailed estimates, and assist at the jobsite. Local Quad-Lock Field Representatives are also ready to assist with quantity pricing, job site training, product seminars and dealer training. Their Product Manual, Installation Guide, installation video, brochures and other informative promotional literature tells you exactly how to build with Quad-Lock. Quad-Lock produces a flat, solid concrete wall providing a constant thickness of concrete throughout the wall. Quad-Lock provides a surface for stucco application compared to many other systems where the surface consists of both Styrofoam and the material used for ties, making it tougher to finish it. The company offers training seminars
Their seminars usually consist of a morning session titled "Product Knowledge" where you learn about the benefits of Insulating Concrete Forms (in particular Quad-Lock) and an afternoon session titled "Installation and Assembly" where you get hands-on training with the Quad-Lock product. www.quadlock.com

The Durisol Wall Form System is the original insulated concrete forming system (ICF). It is the only ICF system that does not use foam or polystyrenes and is made from our unique proprietary material.Durisol lends itself to below- and above-grade building construction. They will work with architects, contractors and homeowners to help create a building that is energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and built with green building practices. The Durisol wall forming system is a straight-forward method of building a reinforced concrete wall with built-in thermal, acoustical and fire protection. The wall forms are interlocking modular units that are dry-stacked (without mortar) and filled with concrete and reinforcing steel.  The Wall Form units are available in a variety of widths and insulation configurations that create a system that is flexible, design friendly and optimized for each specific application (above-grade, below-grade, commercial, residential, etc.). The thermal Wall Forms incorporate mineral fiber (rockwool) insulation that is also non-combustible, moisture resistant and positioned towards the exterior of the wall, resulting in additional energy efficiency that is not possible with other insulated concrete forms. Durisol is a proprietary cement-bonded wood fiber material. It is composed of specially graded recycled waste wood (100% clean, natural softwood lumber), that is neutralized and mineralized, and then bonded together with Portland cement.
Hardened Durisol is lightweight, porous and very durable. It does not rot nor decay. It is vermin, termite and insect proof and does not support fungus growth. Durisol is environmentally safe, does not contain nor emit any toxic elements, and is fully recyclable. It contains no plastic, foams or polystyrenes. www.durisolbuild.com

TF Systemâ, an ICF (insulated concrete form) system for energy-efficient building. They provide an energy efficient concrete wall forming system for homes or commercial buildings. The TF Systemâ insulated concrete forms wall panels slide up and down, exposing construction armature, electrical wiring, plumbing -- or even tools which might have dropped during building construction. Because of ready mixed concrete, the structural framing of a TF Insulated Concrete Building will not rot, burn, or be susceptible to damage from insects. The expanded polystyrene foam used in the stay-in-place forms can also be treated for insect resistance. TF Insulated Concrete Buildings provide for maximum protection from fires, storms and high winds, and other natural disasters. Debris driven by high winds presents the greatest hazard to building occupants during storms. Recent laboratory testing compared the impact resistance of Insulated Concrete Building Technology to wood-frame construction. Insulated Concrete Walls successfully demonstrated the superiority of the strength and mass of Insulated Concrete Walls over any other building system. Insulated Concrete Walls stop wind-driven debris from traveling through exterior walls. Frame walls lack the weight and mass to resist the impact of wind-driven debris. Debris can travel completely through a wood-frame wall. Building owners in costal and/or seismologically-active areas are beginning to embrace Insulated Concrete Buildings because they can be easily designed to guard against damage from earthquakes. Concrete is one of the most resistant construction materials to heat and fire. TF Insulated Concrete Buildings are more likely to remain standing through fire than are structures constructed from other building materials. Unlike wood, concrete does not burn. Unlike steel, concrete does not soften and bend. Concrete does not break down until it exposed to thousands of degrees Fahrenheit ... far more heat than is present in a typical building fire. TF's sandwich of steel-reinforced, 100% concrete, surrounded by two-pound density expanded polystyrene foam, solidly outperforms today's conventional construction methods. Consider the TF Insulated Concrete Building System for the foundation and above-grade exterior walls of any light commercial project. www.tfsystem.com

ECO-Block is an ecologically sound building system. Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) represent one of the fastest-growing sectors in the construction industry today. ICFs are hollow blocks or panels made of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) that a construction crew stacks to create the exterior walls of a residential or commercial building. Workers then add reinforcing steel and fill the gap (typically 4” to 8”) between the two layers of foam with concrete. This combination of concrete, steel and foam creates a very strong and energy-efficient structure. After the concrete has hardened, the forms stay in place and become the insulation for the walls. ECO-Block gives you unlimited design flexibility. Got a saw? ECO-Block cuts easily into any shape you need — perfect for unique window openings and arches. You can also choose from our pre-formed corners in varying sizes and angles. And any exterior or interior finish can be directly applied to the panels. With their multiple manufacturing locations throughout North America, you can save on transportation costs and delivery time. Because the flat panels can be packed tightly, ECO-Block is easier to ship and handle than other fixed-block ICFs. Energy savings generated by an ECO-Block building are enormous — and continue for the life of the building. You save on utility and maintenance costs. ECO-Block buildings stand strong against the wind and weather and will not warp over time. They can have up to a four-hour Fire Resistive Rating. And many companies give discounts to ICF building owners for disaster and fire insurance. www.eco-block.com

CSRä HebelÒ building systems can be used for all applications including walls, roofs, floors and balconies, in both loadbearing and non-loadbearing applications. Hebel products are not affected by harsh climatic conditions and will not degrade under normal atmospheric conditions. The HebelÒ story began over 45 years ago in West Germany, when a building contractor named Josef Hebel decided to develop a more cost effective building system. From the initial success of the first Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) products, Josef Hebel was encouraged to set up a mixing, moulding and cutting plant at Emmering near Munich. Architects and builders quickly saw the advantages of this strong yet lightweight material, and were soon utilizing its range of properties in all types of construction. In 1961 the first home was built from HebelÒ and in the next year a further division, Hebel House, was formed to specialize in residential projects throughout Germany. The success of HebelÒ in Germany was soon noticed overseas, and in 1967 the first joint manufacturing license was signed with Asahi Chemicals of Japan. That partnership now accounts for six factories and supplies a major share of Japan’s masonry requirements. In addition, HebelÒ now manufactures in ten countries worldwide. As Australia’s largest supplier of building materials, it was logical for CSRä to become involved with HebelÒ in the establishment of an Australian operation. In early 1989 the two companies signed a joint venture agreement, the first stage of which was the building of a $34 million factory at Somersby on the NSW Central Coast. www.hebelaustralia.com.au
