We all know that insulation is a major factor in contributing to an energy efficient, comfortable building. However, in terms of energy efficiency the performance of a wall is not solely dependent on the insulation’s R-value. This fact is supported when you consider buildings with exterior walls made with insulated concrete forms (ICFs) require 44% less energy to heat, and 33% less energy to cool, compared to wood framed walls of similar R-value according to one industry study. ICF walls contribute to a much more energy efficient building than framed walls due to continuous insulation, air tightness, and thermal mass. ICFs are the only wall types that inherently encompass all three properties. Logix ICF and the ICF Effect are discussed in detail in our Thermal Performance Whitepaper.
With the best R-value per wall thickness, Logix Platinum SeriesTM provides all of the above and more thanks to millions of graphite infrared absorbers and heat reflectors that reduce thermal conductivity. Plus Logix Platinum Series is the only ICF in the world certied by GreenguardTM for healthier living. For an R-value that doesn’t pretend to be something its not – while being top in the market – Think with Logix.
