Midwest ICF : Insulated Concrete Forms
Insulated Wall Systems (HIWS) is a division of Hawkeye Ready
Mix. HIWS distributes the ECO-Block Insulated Concrete Form
(ICF) system. The ECO-Block system represents a better way to
build by being both simpler and faster than wood-frame construction.
Along with supplying a superior form, Hawkeye in cooperation
with ECO-Block provide an unmatched level of customer service
to all customers, from first time builders to experienced contractors.
They accomplish this through on-site assistance and by offering
a complete line of building accessories, including brace support
systems. These services continue to separate HIWS and ECO-Block
from all other midwest ICF systems. ECO-Block is applicable
for all structures both above and below grade, including commercial
and residential projects. There are many value-added benefits
that make concrete construction the superior method of building;
a few are listed below.
– Concrete stands firm against wind and weather.
Energy-Efficient – Save on energy costs throughout
the life of the home.
Quiet – The insulated concrete of ECO-Block
walls significantly reduces noise.
Stable – Concrete will not warp or twist
Comfortable – ICF walls eliminate drafts
and temperature fluctuation.
Healthy – ICFs emit no harmful gases and
will not support the growth of mold or mildew.
Class A Fire Rating – Fire will not spread
through solid monolithic concrete.
In addition to these
benefits, Hawkeye offers the most versatile ICF on the market.
Their forms adapt to any design, wall thickness, contour or shape
and allow for any exterior or interior finish you desire. In
addition to being the most versatile form, ECO-Block forms are
built to last. The benefits of an ECO-Block home will last the
lifetime of the residence. This means a constant high rate of
energy savings while enjoying a safe and solid structure.For
