The FormPro permanent formwork system forms structural load bearing walls and the system is a great solution for thermal, fire and acoustic attenuation. Permanent insulated concrete formwork (ICF) systems are being rapidly adopted around the world as an energy efficient, fast-track and a cost-effective structural wall system. This permanent formwork method has been used in Europe and North America for many years in projects ranging from commercial and high-rise buildings to residential construction and retaining walls. The Formcraft ICF wall system uses interchangeable fibre-cement and expanded polystyrene (EPS) panels as the permanent formwork and insulation for the steel reinforced concrete walls. Once the concrete hardens, this insulated concrete formwork wall system easily outperforms traditional construction methods. The FormPro® insulated concrete formwork system provides the option of using 8mm Fiber Cement (FC) board or 60mm EPS panels on one or both sides of the ICF concrete walls. The ability to use combinations of EPS and FC panels in the FormPro® ICF wall system broadens the scope for construction of walls with a range of R values, sound transmission coefficients, fire ratings and overall thicknesses for different structural applications. Formcraft Pty Ltd was set up to innovate, develop and supply best of breed construction systems to world markets. The company has and strong R&D focus and has successfully commercialised proprietary permanent concrete formwork systems used to form super-structures that are fast-tracked, pre-finished, insulated and economical. Design and development continues to provide some exciting new elements to the Formcraft permanent formwork construction system. They now result in a single building element that meets fire, acoustic, thermal and structural code requirements, while also offering a range of finished surfaces. FormPro® is acknowledged as the most technologically advanced Insulated Concrete Formwork wall system in Australia, because of its innovative design and technical features that set it apart from other ICFs. Since its introduction in 2005, FormPro has become the ICF of choice for projects ranging from large commercial projects and multi-storey residential developments to single storey mine camp accommodation and high-end homes.
