CEMEX Ready Wallform is an Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF) system designed to take construction into the modern age. The system is a combination of large, hollow lightweight blocks which lock together to provide a permanent formwork into which CEMEX Readymix Concrete can be poured.
- Fast & simple to construct
- Cost effective solution
- Low, zero or passive energy performance
- Sustainable and recyclable materials
- No ongoing maintenance required
Once the concrete is poured the system becomes a high-strength structure, with the added benefit of the formwork remaining as a thermal insulation barrier, providing U-values from 0.30 W/m2k down to 0.10 W/m2k.
The Ready Wallform system has a range of core thicknesses to suit a wide variety of end-uses and combined with the flexibility of working with in-situ concrete this allows for greater creativity in the design of the building, making architectural dreams more achievable. This flexibility also allows greater choice in other materials used such as floors, roof systems, cladding and windows, enabling better specification and use of sustainable materials.
The use of Ready Wallform ICF is not just limited to housing. With its structural design and monolithic construction it is also ideal for:
- Low-rise office blocks
- Care Homes
- Student Accommodation
The process of building with Ready Wallform is quick and straightforward, with significantly lower labour costs and reduced reliance on specialist equipment in comparison to traditional techniques. Add this to the energy efficiency of the finished building and the whole-life cost benefits of using Insulating Concrete Forms become clear.
