With changing building codes and a desire for increased energy efficiency, homeowners and building owners are looking for contractors who build with energy efficient building materials. NUDURA is a logical choice for contractors and developers. It is the simplest, most reliable way to achieve the new energy efficiency standards prescribed by the recently updated Ontario Building Code. Not only does it save on construction time and labour, it also provides your clients with a home or building that out-performs all other building methods.

Energy Efficiency
Structures built with NUDURA cost less to heat and cool. A NUDURA wall can provide performance comparable to an R-50 batt insulated wood framed wall, resulting in up to 50% in energy savings.

Fire Resistance
NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms offer building owners maximum safety, with a fire protection rating of up to 4 hours. NUDURA ICFs are made with non-toxic, fire retardant treated expanded polystyrene, ensuring maximum safety for occupants.

Acoustic Performance
NUDURA ICF walls act as an effective sound barrier, filtering out unwanted noise, dampening sound vibrations from unwanted outside noise, creating comfortable working or living spaces for occupants.

NUDURA ICF Structures provide greater impact resistance than any other building method, and will withstand winds of up to 402 km/h ensuring building occupants are safe and secure in almost any situation. They can also be designed to comply with earthquake resistant specifications in various seismic zones. The strength of the NUDURA wall comes from the solid, steel-reinforced concrete core.

Healthy Environment
NUDURA Insulated Concrete Forms create a mould-free environment, as there is no organic material which will support mould growth. Also, the expanded polystyrene is non toxic, no CFC’s are used in the manufacturing process, and there is no off-gassing. This provides for a trouble-free, healthy environment.
