Foxblocks® ICF - Insulated Concrete Forming Blocks
Innovative & Cost Effective Concrete Forming
Foxblocks® ICF - Insulated Concrete Forming Blocks
- The Fox Blocks insulating concrete forms are the best wall system to be used in a building envelope for obtaining a high Energy Star rating
- The Fox Blocks steady-state R-Value is R-23. This R-value is the same for below grade, above grade, residential, commercial projects. The R-Value is the same for any wall thickness.
- Easy to use, reversible, preassembled foam blocks reduce waste and increase the speed of construction
- With the Fox Block ICF wall system, all you need is a mesh and the acrylic coatings
- Embedded anchors for easy installation of drywall and sidings directly to ICF wall; use course thread screws
- Fire Resistant up to 4 hours, Sound Transmission Class (STC), ASTM E90, STC 45-50+,
Unlimited Design Detailing and Finishes
With blocks available in a number of shapes, sizes, and concrete core thicknesses, we can create any design you can dream up. Plus, our wall assembly works with all exterior/interior finishes you choose to use, be it EIFS, traditional stucco, brick, stone, fiber cement siding or drywall.
Unparalleled Comfort and Quiet
Our wall assembly provides indoor comfort and improves a building’s performance characteristics for the interior environment by eliminating moisture intrusion, managing the airflow, and allowing for accurate climate control and minimizing sound mitigation.
Strength Against the Elements
Our ICF wall assembly meets and exceeds safety/resilience/durability requirements for Division 03 Concrete, Section 031119 ICF; Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG) Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) & FEMA-ATFP Federal Military and DoD Standards FEMA-ATFP.
Lifetime of Savings
The performance characteristics of our wall assembly can reduce a building’s heating and cooling cost dramatically (up to 50%) and puts Net Zero Energy goals within reach

By building with Fox Blocks Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF), you can produce a sustainable building enclosure that is energy efficient, durable and requires little maintenance. Not only do ICF walls increase the resistance to fire and safety from natural disasters, but their airtight qualities allow for better indoor air quality, by giving the control back to the occupants of the building. The monolithic ICF wall provides uniform interior temperatures and superior sound attenuation properties to increase the building performance of any building type.
Built for Whatever’s to Come
Fox Blocks walls are double-insulated, steel-reinforced concrete walls that are ready for your exterior and interior finishes and will provide peace of mind as they enable you to meet tomorrow’s building codes and design styles today.
Net Zero Building with All-Season Protection
Bring on the extreme weather: with Fox Blocks, resilient construction stands up against the elements. These walls also help you meet your net-zero goals, bringing lifetime energy savings.
We’ve Built a Reputation for Strength
From above and below-grade residential projects to offices, hotels, schools, government buildings, and more, our projects prove the success of our superior product.
See Fox Blocks in action with the Discovery Elementary School building, one of only four schools in the nation to receive the zero energy certification.
6 IN 1: THE ELEMENTS THAT
MAKE OUR ICF WALLS SUPERIOR
- OUR CONCRETE FORM HAS REBAR SUPPORT
It’s one of the strongest wall assemblies available for below and above-grade walls, exceeding safety/resilience/durability requirements for FEMA-ATFP Federal Military Standards.
- CONTINUOUS DOUBLE-LAYER INSULATION
Provides superior thermal comfort, energy savings, and sound mitigation. An R-value of 23.5+ plus whole-wall high performance enables Zero Energy Ready builds.
- SOLID MONOLITHIC WALL AIR BARRIER
Exceeds the code minimum for airtightness. This natural continuous air barrier creates comfortable indoor environments with enhanced climate control.
- A CONTINUOUS NATURAL VAPOR BARRIER
Create spaces with healthier air quality. Our wall assemblies have a PERM rating of <1.0, virtually eliminating moisture intrusion, mold, and rot from your list of concerns.
- FULL HEIGHT EMBEDDED FASTENING STRIPS
Gives you a solid attachment for any exterior or interior finish, eliminating thermal bridging. They’re strong enough to work with everything from brick to siding.
- REVERSIBLE INTERLOCK
Our block design saves construction time and reduces product waste, with a solid 2” parallel friction fit connection that’s easy, versatile and fast to assemble.
