Reward forms are made of expanded polystyrene (EPS), a material similar to that in styrofoam ice chests you can buy at the grocery store. The forms are made up of two panels of EPS held together by plastic ties. The ties are embedded into the foam to hold the form together. The embedded ends of the ties flatten out to form fastening surfaces recessed within the foam to allow for any type of exterior or interior finish. Since the ties run the full height of the forms, a Reward wall contains continuous furring strips, foundation to eave line.
To build Reward walls, simply stack the forms to shape your walls, install vertical and horizontal rebar, and fill the center cavity of the wall with concrete. You now have complete walls, insulated and ready to finish any way you choose.
Reward ICF walls are complete walls—steel-reinforced concrete, insulation and furring all in one. They are ideal for either residential or commercial construction and will provide a structure that is superior to any other in strength, energy efficiency and all-around comfort.
