From Tritex ICFTritex ICF Products offers updated ties for its insulating concrete form wall building system. Tie length is extended to reach 15 3/4" tall, and tie thickness is 40% greater than the previous design. The new tie design will be incorporated into all of the company’s XilliX brand ICFs.
The new tie design will provide builders with a thicker furring strip with increased fastener withdrawal strength and greater fastening surface area. Together, these improvements will make it easier to affix exterior and interior finishes that are attached directly to the forms with fasteners. Even with increased thickness, the ties still will be recessed 5/8" below the surface of the form, allowing the application of stucco and EIFS vanishes directly to the form.
