Eco-Friendly Home Construction Materials
Eco-Friendly Home Construction Materials.
Homes designed for healthier, safer living.
Nudura insulated concrete forms are an energy efficient construction solution that can provide up to 50% energy savings compared to traditional building methods using wood framing.
All Nudura insulated concrete forms are made from 100% recyclable materials, including EPS insulation which is a safe, healthy building material that has no off-gassing and is non-toxic. EPS is also produced without the use of CFCs. Nudura products also feature a uniquely designed folding web that is manufactured from 100% recycled polypropylene and steel.
Some of the other benefits of using Nudura’s energy efficient construction materials include:
Since Nudura forms are constructed from concrete—one of the most durable building materials available—structures made from Nudura ICFs offer high impact resistance, providing a superior level of fire protection and maximum safety in hurricane and tornado prone areas.
Nudura insulated concrete form technology is specifically designed to create less waste during the construction process. Since all waste generated is 100% recyclable, less waste ends up in our landfills.
All Nudura forms are laboratory tested and will not support mold growth.
Combining Nudura forms with other energy efficient construction methods can help significantly reduce the amount of carbon emissions produced. This is thanks for the structure’s high energy efficiency levels, which reduce the amount of fossil fuels needed for heating and cooling. Nudura forms also offer a much longer lifespan (several hundred years compared to less than 80 years for wood frame buildings), eliminating the carbon emissions that would otherwise be produced when repairing or replacing the home or building.
Since Nudura insulated concrete forms are designed to perform an airtight wall assembly with no cavities or organic building materials, moisture is unable to condense and form mold. This means that mechanical systems will be able to heat, cool, and ventilate the interior of the building more efficiently, creating a healthier living and working environment for the building’s occupants.
LEED for homes is a rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes by using energy efficient construction materials, resulting in less energy, water, and natural resources being used, as well as a more comfortable environment for the occupants. LEED homes provide a range of benefits, such as lower energy and water bills, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and less exposure to mold, mildew, and other indoor toxins. Nudura insulated concrete forms can contribute a significant level of LEED points, helping you create a home built to LEED standards.
