Amdeck

Amdeck is a modular, one-way concrete slab with an integrated joists system that allows an engineer to maximize the clear span and potentially reduce the temporary shoring. It incorporates full length 10″ (254mm) lightweight steel C-channel joists to support temporary construction loads, utilizing the appropriate shoring. It can be used in a horizontal configuration for floors and roofs with typical finished unsupported clear spans up to 30ft (9.1m). It is perfectly suited for use with ICF walls or independently with other structural systems.

Thermal Resistance R19 hr.ft2.F/Btu (3.34 m2K/W)
Steel Joists Thickness 16ga, 14ga or 12ga
Size of Form (h)12” x (w)32” x (l)24” / (h)305mm x (w) 813mm x (l)610mm

Why Build With ICF?

Strength and Resilience

The monolithic reinforced concrete core makes for a much stronger structure when compared to framed construction. The combination of high strength and fire resistance rating (FRR) creates superior resistance to both natural and man-made disasters. The wall components do not lose their structural integrity when exposed to high moisture environments.

Energy Efficiency

ICF wall has minimal thermal bridging due to the dual layers of continuous insulation. The sandwich wall assembly creates a very airtight envelope reducing undesired air leakage. The combination of the high thermal resistance, air tightness and thermal mass makes for a very energy efficient building.

Indoor Comfort

The combination of increased air tightness and continuous insulation creates a superior building envelope which has no drafts and maintains the conditioned space within the optimal thermal comfort range. The addition of the concrete mass contributes to the highly sound absorbent walls (high STC rating) giving the occupants a quiet comfortable interior.

Sustainability

The highly energy efficient envelope can reduce the building’s carbon footprint while the durable and robust structure fortifies it against nature’s unavoidable hazards giving ICF buildings long service life. Additionally, wall components can be made from recycled materials minimizing the impact on the environment through reduced raw material demand.

Green Building with Amvic ICF Systems

Green Building

Green Building with Amvic ICF Systems
Amvic ICF systems are an excellent alternative for environmentally friendly and long-lasting buildings. There are several elements that make Amvic ICF a preferred choice for sustainable construction.
Reduces Harmful Emissions

Reduces Harmful Emissions

Amvic manufacturing facilities use steam and cold water to produce ICF. No harmful chemicals like CFC’s, HCFC’s, formaldehyde are used in Amvic’s manufacturing process eliminating off-gassing and greatly reducing harmful emissions.

Minimizes Waste

Minimizes Waste

Amvic ICF can generate as little as 1% construction waste, greatly reducing landfill bound waste.

Uses Recycled Materials

Uses Recycled Materials

Amvic ICF webs are manufactured using 100% post-industrial recycled polypropylene which effectively means that over 60% of the weight of an Amvic ICF block is comprised of recycled materials.

Contributes to LEED® Certification

Contributes to LEED® Certification

The USGBC’s LEED® Certification program provides a framework for assessing building performance and sustainability based on water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. Amvic ICF may contribute to 32-35 points towards LEED® certification.
