Frequently Asked Questions
A: LOGIX is available in 4″, 6″, and 8″ cavity widths. Our forms are 48″ long and 16″ high, with half height 8″ forms also available.
A: Yes. Logix offers contractor training through their regional technical and marketing offices. Go to www.logixicf.com for more info.
A: No. The combination of concrete and two layers of foam means that the LOGIX wall acts as a natural barrier against air and moisture.
A: Insulated Concrete Forms create homes and buildings that are more energy efficient, stronger, more sound resistant, and more environmentally sustainable than any other construction method.
A: No harmful CFCs or HCFCs or any other ozone depleting substance is let off during the production of LOGIX forms. You can rest easy in your LOGIX structure.
A: A LOGIX wall has a sound transmission classification of STC 50, which is twice as high as a typical wood-framed wall. Loud noises outside a LOGIX building will be reduced to a whisper inside the building.
A: Over the last 20 years builders have been asked to build tighter and tighter homes with the use of poly, tape, caulking, gaskets and seals. When any one of these products is not installed perfectly moisture gets into the wall cavity, which can cause mold and mildew problems and rot. LOGIX solves all of these problems.
A: The foam in LOGIX walls provides a thermal resistance rating of R-24. Due to the combined effects of this foam with the high thermal mass and reduced air infiltration of an insulated concrete wall, LOGIX walls can perform at significantly higher effective performance levels.
A: Most remodeling contractors have the ability to cut openings into an ICF wall. Most tool rental stores have concrete cutting saws for rent for cutting openings.
