Altherm ICF sets itself apart by maintaining triple accreditation for quality from the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) Board of Agrément, ISO 9001, and the British Board of Agrément.
- NSAI Agrément: The NSAI Agrément is a certification which ensures a product's compliance with building regulations and standards in the Republic of Ireland. Altherm ICF's accreditation by NSAI Agrément is a testament to our dedication to delivering products that not only meet but exceed the industry benchmarks. The certificate specifies the conditions and detailed installation requirements under which the products must be installed and finished to meet or exceed the requirements of the building regulations, including those for fire protection. This certification is particularly crucial in the construction sector, where adherence to regulations is paramount to ensure the durability and safety of the structures.
- ISO 9001: ISO 9001 is a globally recognised standard for quality management. Our attainment of ISO 9001 certification underscores our commitment to implementing and maintaining rigorous quality management practices throughout our manufacturing process, from sourcing of raw materials to factory quality control, right through to site delivery. This certification not only validates our operational excellence but also assures our customers that they can trust Altherm ICF products to meet the highest standards of quality.
- British Board of Agrément: The British Board of Agrément (BBA) is a leading UK body that certifies products and systems in the construction industry. Altherm ICF's accreditation by the BBA is a mark of approval for our innovation and compliance with industry standards. The BBA certification assures customers that Altherm ICF products have undergone thorough testing and evaluation, providing them with confidence in the reliability and performance of the construction materials.
What is ICF?
Insulating concrete forms (ICF) is a system of construction, used normally for the exterior and party walls of buildings. The resulting walls form a monolithic reinforced concrete structure.
The fire-retardant insulation used in the manufacture of the formwork is then retained to provide thermal insulation for the building. Certified interior and exterior finishes are applied to the surface of the insulation to complete the buildings.
Although it is considered a modern method of construction in Ireland, insulating concrete forms have been used in residential construction the world over for many years.
ICF as a construction method is approved by certification bodies in all major jurisdictions and is a popular and growing method of construction worldwide.
