Description
LOGIX Insulated Concrete Forms are used to create solid reinforced concrete walls that are pre-insulated for use both above and below grade. LOGIX walls are particularly effective for residential, light commercial, institutional, and industrial buildings, providing excellent insulation as well as thermal mass and structural strength. LOGIX walls offer a 4-hour fire resistance rating.

INTEGRASPEC PERMANENT INSULATING CONCRETE FORMWORK INTEGRASPEC INSULATING CONCRETE FORMWORK (ICF) WALL SYSTEM PRODUCT SCOPE AND SUMMARY OF CERTIFICATE This Certificate relates to the IntegraSpec Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF) Wall System, for use in the formation of loadbearing and non-loadbearing internal, external and separating walls in low-rise and multi-level commercial, industrial, institutional, agricultural and residential construction.  AGRÉMENT CERTIFICATION INCLUDES: ã factors relating to compliance with Building Regulations where applicableã factors relating to additional non-regulatory information where applicableã independently verified technical specificationã assessment criteria and technical investigationsã design considerationsã installation guidanceã regular surveillance of productionã formal three-yearly review. KEY FACTORS ASSESSED Practicability of installation — installation of the formwork should be carried out by trained operatives (see section 4). Structural aspects — the system components have adequate strength to resist the loads associated with installation loading (see section 5). Thermal performance — the system contributes to the overall thermal performance of the wall construction (see section 6). Risk of condensation — walls, openings and junctions with other elements will adequately limit the risk of surface condensation (see section 7). Behaviour in relation to fire — the concrete walls formed from the system provide fire resistance when designed in accordance with BS 8110-2 : 1985 or BS EN 1992-1-1 : 2004 (see section 8). Sound insulation — separating and internal walls with a minimum concrete core density and detailing stated in this Certificate will provide sufficient sound resistance (see section 13). Durability — the system components are durable (see section 15).    Agrément Certificate 11/4820 Product Sheet 1 The BBA has awarded this Agrément Certificate to the company named above for the system described herein.

Non-regulatory Information NHBC Standards 2011 NHBC accepts the use of the IntegraSpec Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF) Wall System when installed and used in accordance with this Certificate, in relation to NHBC Standards . General The IntegraSpec Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF) Wall System is for use as permanent insulating formwork in the formation of loadbearing and non-loadbearing internal, external and separating dense concrete walls in commercial, industrial, institutional, agricultural and residential construction up to four storeys high subject to design load limitations. The forms are also suitable for infill walling applications as part of other primary structural frames.Suitable foundations (not covered by this Certificate) must be provided and comply with the relevant clauses of BS 8004 : 1986. The system can also be used below ground subject to adherence to structural design to British or European Standards (see section 5.2), carried out by a Chartered Structural Engineer, and detailing in accordance with BS 8102 : 2009. However, below-ground waterproof construction and protection against ingress of ground water has not been assessed and is outside the scope of this Certificate. Use in any structures incorporating the system is subject to design limitations in accordance with British or European Standards.The EPS formwork does not provide permanent structural assistance to the building and only contributes to the thermal insulation of the finished construction.  Page 4 of 20 Technical Specification 1 Description 1.1 The IntegraSpec Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF) Wall System consists of various elements formed from fire-retardant polystyrene beads in accordance with BS EN 13163 : 2008 (see Figure 1). The system consists of panels formed from expanded polystyrene (EPS) and plastic inserts made of high impact polystyrene (HIPS) moulded into the EPS during the manufacturing process. The EPS panels are available in a single white grade with a nominal density of 24 kg·m –3  and nominal thickness of 65 mm. The inserts are profiled to allow spacers to slide into position tying the inside and outside panels to form a concrete core. The spacers, made of HIPS, are available in six sizes to create concrete cores of 100 mm, 125 mm, 150 mm, 200 mm, 250 mm and 300 mm widths. Spacers have snap-in reinforcement mounting points to accommodate horizontal reinforcement. The panels are designed to interlock and are dry-laid in staggered vertical joints (brick bond). The external faces of the panels are lightly grooved vertically to receive the applied finishes. The formwork requires support during concrete filling.1.2 If required, horizontal reinforcing bars are placed in a staggered configuration in the snap-in mounting points on the plastic spacers. Vertical reinforcement is woven down through the horizontal reinforcement and holds it in place without the need for mechanical fixings.1.3 The formwork components are assembled to produce wall construction as shown in Table 1.

The inner surface has locking grooves running vertically to receive the dovetail tongues of the cavity closer panels that form stop ends around openings for doors and windows. The outer surface is grooved at 25 mm centres to aid cutting and also act as a key for external finishes.1.5 The flanges of the high impact polystyrene inserts are used to screw-fix lightweight finishes such as plasterboard, subject to load limitations. The location of the inset flanges is marked on the external face of the formwork with the ‘IntegraSpec’ name running vertically at 200 mm centres.1.6 The spacers interlock vertically and are placed at 200 mm centres horizontally (see Figure 2).
