FLOOD RESISTANT DESIGN


FLOOD RESILIENT BUILDING & DESIGN

NUDURA buildings offer many benefits over traditional building materials. NUDURA buildings are resistant to water ingress due to the non-absorbent nature of the Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) that are used in Insulating Concrete Formwork. In conjunction with the EPS the solid monolithic concrete core provides superior safety and structural stability.

NUDURA ICF systems provide greater impact resistance and will withstand winds of up to 250 mph ensuring that the occupants are safe and secure in almost any situation. The strength of the concrete wall comes from the steel reinforced solid concrete core. NUDURA offers Insulating Concrete Forms in sizes ranging from 100mm to 300mm of concrete. When compared to traditional block or timber walls the strength and safety you get with NUDURA insulating concrete wall is far superior.


Insulated Concrete Wall systems like NUDURA have been used for commercial and residential structures throughout the UK and in some of North America's most active high wind areas and have saved building owners from having to rebuild their homes and businesses.


The home below is an actual NUDURA  that survived a devastating Hurricane in Florida in 2004. This NUDURA Home was the only home on the block that did not sustain damage to the extent of other homes in the area.
