insulating wood-cement forms

insulating wood-cement forms

Systems that can be cast in place or installed as pre-assembled pieces that lock together to create structurally solid insulated forms. Made from a variety of different materials, such as cement-bonded wood fiber, polystyrene beads, and expanded polystyrene. They are highly efficient insulation systems, especially for low-rise residential and commercial constructions, because their structure minimizes air leaks and heat loss. They are also durable, with a high sound absorption rate, a long lifespan, and relatively low maintenance costs. See also: Insulation systems
