We’re gonna be using Amvic, a Canadian made ICF. A nice price break for us versus the other two brands available, Logix and Arxx.
Discussing the system with the Amvic guy today (we’ve not worked with any ICF yet), he’s telling me that the corners are all-ways reversible.
That means there’s no top, no bottom, and that a block can be either rotated for use or flipped. I like that, and it is in my layout scheme.
He tells me that other ICF makers (maybe not all, maybe just a few) make the corners as RH and LH. Sounds like moronic product design to me. Is this true?
Then I go on to tell him that our plan has some stepdowns and that we will need to be bracing some small sections of wall 13′-4″ tall, and the Amvic braces are only 10′ high. He says no problem, just make a strongback tee section of 2x that’s 3′-4″ and stand the brace on it, then dual-brace the whole thing.
Is this what you do, you ICF guru?
