  1. INTUITIVE ASSEMBLY
    Affectionately known as "giant Lego", the hollow Logix blocks simply stack together.
  2. CONTINUOUS FOAM INSULATION
    Two thick, continuous Logix Pro foam panels envelope the home or building to provide an effective wall assembly R-Value of R-25. (Higher R-values are available with Logix Platinum Series and XRV Panels.)
  3. VARYING CAVITY WIDTHS
    Build walls with a steel-reinforced concrete core from 4" to 12" thick. (Even thicker walls can be built using the Logix Xtender Clip.)
  4. LOW AIR INFILTRATION
    The Logix wall assembly delivers up to 60% lower air infiltration than a traditionally built wall.1 This feature adds to the thermal performance of the foam insulation, and makes the home even more draft-free and comfortable.
  5. 5-DAY THERMAL LAG
    The Logix concrete core also provides a 5-day thermal lag.2 The thermal performance of the home is enhanced yet again.
  6. GREATER SAFETY AND PROTECTION
    Logix's steel-reinforced concrete core also protects the home or building against fires, hurricanes and earthquakes.
  7. EXCEPTIONAL SOUNDPROOFING
    The concrete core significantly reduces the penetration of outside noise.
  8. TERMITE RESISTANCE
    Treated with Preventol, the Logix TX Series even protects against termites.

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.
