The ControlLogix or CompactLogix MSG block is displayed as follows. More detailed information on the MSG block is available in Allen Bradley publication 1756-RM003L-EN-P, Logix5000 Controllers General Instructions.
Logix blocks have strips of plastic that run up and down the block. These are every 4 inches and material can be fastened directly to these strips. This allows any type of material to be applied such as sheetrock, steel siding, or wiring for preparation of stucco.
Logix ICF blocks fit together quickly and easily to create foundation forms that are the correct width consistently throughout the foundation. The blocks support all of the rebar required by code and connect to each other creating a single pour form that increases strength and decreases labor. The outside of the foundation can then be finished with stucco, siding, or stone for depending on the look desired. Read more about Logix at
The six-story Village Suites sustainable student housing project in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, was constructed with 30,000 LOGIX Platinum Series blocks. These ICFs consist of silver-gray insulation materials made of BASF's Neopor instead of traditional white expandable polystyrene insulation. Contractors used 10-inch LOGIX blocks in the parking garage while the residence hall structure was built with 8-inch LOGIX blocks for the main floor and 6-inch blocks on the other floors. Additionally, contractors used LOGIX to build rooftop parapets and LOGIX KD Platinum blocks were built around rebar cages.
