Home Insulating Concrete Forms - Bautex Plant Tour
Insulating concrete forms are becoming more mainstream for builders. These walls have great perks like energy efficiency, fire resistance and they can withstand over 100-mph winds. Matt Risinger is touring the Bautex plant in San Marcos, Texas and gives us an overview of this wall system. Learn about how these walls are made and check out why he loves these walls. The first reason is efficiency. Risinger talks about the EPS foam built into the wall and the mass wall effect that gives great efficiency. Second," fire resistance. Watch as he holds a torch to the wall! We'll also get an inside-look at how the walls are made at the plant and the perks for a green-building future.
