Stay-In-Place Insulating Concrete Form
After four years in development, last year we started manufacturing our stay-in-place insulating concrete form, called Tech Bloc. Made of expanded polystyrene, this product can be used for basement foundations or entire single or multi-story buildings homes, barns, warehouses, churches, schools, and so on. It produces a quiet, energy-efficient structure with tremendous strength.
  Tech Block is the first insulating concrete form with an offset panel which allows you to pour the footer and wall in one operation. The off-set panel can be turned upside down to form an exterior brick ledge or an interior ledge to set floor joists on. Finishing walls drywall, paneling, stucco, siding, etc.) can be applied directly to the surface of the forms without furring. Each form is 16 by 48 in., 2 in. thick. They're lightweight, easy to handle and ship flat for low freight rates. They're assembled in pairs on site.
  We provide whatever field and technical support might be needed. (Dick Chambers, TechSystems, 10813 Zerkle Rd., Cridersville, Ohio 45802 ph 800 406-4096 or 419 657-6525)
