BuildBlock BB-445 6-inch 45-degree Corner Block (ICFs)
BuildBlock Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) are a state-of-the-art 3rd generation insulating concrete form wall system. BuildBlock ICFs are designed to save you time, money, and hassle during installtion. BuildBlock ICFs are availale in a variety of sizes with accessories for every application.
- Molded-in “Tape Measure.” Numbered, vertical cut lines on every inch, often eliminate the need for using a tape measure.
- Extra Heavy-duty Attachment Points (450lbs.+). Located every 8" vertically and every 6" horizontally, allowing for super secure attachment of bracing or heavy cabinetry.
- Attachment Point Markings. Molded-in markings identify attachment points; heavy-duty attachment points are marked with a BB.
- Molded-in Horizontal Cut Lines. Located every two inches; provide horizontal cutting references for straighter cuts.
- 1-inch Repeating Cut Pattern on Block Connection. More layout options; no mismatched connections. One of the lowest waste factors of any ICF on the market today.
- Ready to Stack. No on-site assembly required; start installing right off the truck. Stronger and more rigid than knock down blocks.
- Reversible. Straight and corner forms are fully reversible; no top, bottom, left or right.
- Standard Size. Industry-standard 16" high forms produce less waste when cutting around doors and windows.
- Interlocking. Blocks easily stack and securely lock into place resulting in greater strength over the competition.
- 2½" Foam Panels. Allows easy accommodation of electrical and plumbing installations.
- High-density, Molded-in Plastic Webs. Eight webs spaced on 6" centers makes for a stronger form than the 8" spacing found in many other ICFs. Greater strength, more value.
- Symmetrical Web Design. Produces two identical halves when form is cut in two horizontally.
- Rebar Support. Deep, snap-in rebar fingers hold two 5/8" rebar in place with no need for tying steel.
- Open Web Design. Interior rebar saddles provide rebar support without compromising concrete flow.
- Completely reversible (no top or bottom, left or right)
- Interlocking connections have more surface area to hold blocks together without the use of adhesive foam in most cases.
- Longer web fingers for securing two pieces of rebar in each row of fingers, helping to eliminate void problems.
- Molded-in high-density plastic webs (also referred to as “ties”); Sheetrock and finishes are screwed into the 1½″ wide web flange.
- Heavy-duty attachment points (over 450 lbs. screw pull-out strength) built into the face of every web; used to attach vertical bracing during construction, exterior/interior finishes, and cabinetry.
- Longer corners than the industry standard require less corner bracing. This feature results in quicker installations and walls that are more plumb and straight.
- Patented corner web provides corner attach points for securing sheet rock, siding, and other finishes. The corner holds the vertical rebar up to ⅝″ diameter; PVC schedule 40 (¾″ diameter) pipe can be placed down the corner hole located in the outside foam for additional support and to attach finishes to as well.
- Horizontal cut lines every 2″ vertically, eliminating the use of a level when installing window and door bucks.
- Built-in tape measure across the block face; saves you the trouble of pulling out a tape measure every time you need to cut a block.
- Highly visible web markings make sheet rock and finish attachment easy.
