Hambro Concrete Floor System for ICF Walls
When an ICF structure has required a concrete floor there are two choices to choose from depending on the space below the floor. If the space is unconditioned like a garage or open car port then an insulated floor forming product can be used. But it the space under the floor is conditioned or if the space is exposed to potential sea water damage like in a raised platform design in a floor plain area, a different choice may be preferred. This Hambro floor system reduced the cost of installing a concrete floor on ICF wall because it eliminates the cost of the ICF floor forming systems insulation cost. It also allows for the plywood to be removed if the application could be exposed to immersion in flood waters.
