RETHINK THE WAY YOU BUILD

The result was teaming up with Greenstone Building Products and working together to manufacture the Insulated Composite Envelope, or the ICE Panel System. Greenstone Building Products has been manufacturing and building with ICE Panels for over 15 years. The system was designed to create a higher quality, more energy efficient and sustainable home while reducing labor, trades and building time. ICE Panels are an affordable, structural panelized building system comprised of structural insulated below grade foundation walls and above grade exterior walls. Although you can use the below grade or above grade system separately, the system is maximized when used together. Our panels can accommodate any building site or house plan.

ICE PANEL SYSTEM

FOUNDATION SYSTEM

 

ICE Foundation Panels use  NO CONCRETE except in the footing and can be installed in ONE DAY. Panels are structurally designed for your specific project needs with R-35+, or greater, effective insulation. The interior of the foundation wall is ready for drywall upon completion of installation. An affordable alternative for a better foundation.

FULL FOUNDATION WALLS

This is a heavy-duty system typically with 8” on-center G90 steel studs. 9.25" of EPS (expanded polystyrene) is molded into the frame and each stud to create a fully composite panel that is sustainable, ready to finish and provides high R values. Frames are easily attached with both metal fasteners and structural adhesive for maximum load capability. Total height provides a finished basement ceiling of over 8 feet with integrated insulated rim system for floor decks.

 

WALKOUT WALLS

These walls extend from the frost line up to the floor joists, with lower sections below grade. Total height 144" to include a frost wall, which saves on time and framing costs.

 

WINDOW AND EGRESS WALLS

Window, doors and egress openings are accounted for with our window and egress walls. We offer standard sizes to fit most window and can accommodate doors, sliders and window wells. Custom sizes and shapes are available.

Formulated through detailed engineering analysis and verified through certified ASTM testing, ICE Foundation Panels are designed to address significant load factors associated with foundation construction.

ICE FOUNDATION PANEL BENEFITS

  • Rapid installation in one day

 

  • Ready to finish, no interior framing required

 

  • Fully Insulated R-35+

  • Waterproof and hardcoated to look like concrete

  • Mold-proof and insect resistant

 

  • Affordable, faster and better alternative to poured in place concrete

 

  • Fire-resistant, meets ASTM E-84 requirements

Our hard-coat provides higher compressive strength, is waterproof, non-conductive, impact-resistant, insect-resistant and stands up to backfill while having a UV resistant concrete appearance.

Actual color and appearance

Installed in ONE DAY and ready to backfill the NEXT DAY

  • Hardcoat exterior that is impact-resistant and has "concrete finish" look

 

  • Standard panels to fit most foundation footprints

 

  • Waterproof and moisture proof - no more wet basements

 

  • No cracking like concrete

 

  • Sustainable with no off-gassing

Reduce

Energy Costs

75%

Strength - Structural steel is engineered to comply with design criteria of the IRC and IBC codes. No cracking or spalling like concrete.

 

Faster Installation - Reduces time and eliminates steps for pouring, curing and stripping foundation. Panels are pre-engineered and manufactured in a quality-controlled environment to exact standards and delivered with door, window and egress openings cut and ready for installation.

Energy Efficient - Designed for energy efficiency, delivering effective R-Value of R-35+ and reducing energy costs by up to 75%. R-Value will not degrade over time. Foam-to-foam connection for zero energy loss.

Ready to Finish - Interior walls can be finished with dry wall, plaster or any other type of finish.

 

No Mold, No Moisture - Closed cell expanded polystyrene does not allow for mold, fungi or moisture. No more wet and musty basements.

 

Sustainable - Made with recycled materials and completely recyclable. Does not “off gas”. EPS (Expanded Polystyrene), CFC and HCFC free.

FACTOID

About 50 percent of a basement’s heat loss comes from the top two feet of the foundation. This is worsened by the shortcomings of insulation methods for concrete—which already has an insulating factor lower than R-1. With the Evolution Foundation System, our composite panel itself is insulated to R-36 from the footing to the sill.

Insect Deterrent - Uses steel and expanded polystyrene - neither of which are of nutritional value to wood-boring insects such as termites.

 

Sound Attenuation - Improves sound attenuation, reducing sound conduction throughout the structure.

 

Closed Cell - Closed cell technology eliminates moisture absorption, increases structural strength, reduces air circulation and reduces sound transfer compared to open cell.

 

High Performance - Panels can withstand extreme pressure and temperature changes with no expansion and contraction.

ABOVE GRADE SYSTEM

Formulated through detailed engineering analysis and verified through certified ASTM testing, ICE Above Grade Panels are designed to address load factors associated with home construction including shear, racking and wind or snow loads. 

Our panels can be used to frame the envelope of a home or business on top of a traditional concrete foundation, but it is even better when used on top of ICE Foundation Panels.

COMPLETE EXTERIOR WALLS

This is a heavy-duty panel system, typically, with 16” on-center studs. EPS is molded into the frame and each stud to create a fully composite panel that is sustainable, ready for cladding outside and drywall inside and provides high R values. Frames are easily attached with metal fasteners and structural adhesive for maximum load capability. All 24" and 48" panels come ready for wiring with an electrical chase and box opening.

 

WINDOW AND EGRESS WALLS

Window, doors and egress openings are accounted for with our window and egress walls. We offer standard sizes to fit most window and can accommodate doors, sliders and window wells. Custom sizes and shapes are available.

The ICE Panel System USES NO WOOD. Our panels are comprised of structural steel and are insulated using EPS foam. Used in conjunction with the ICE Foundation System, a home will last a lifetime. No more nail pops, cracking, or moisture issues in addition to unparalleled energy efficiency. Framing, insulation, sheathing and vapor barrier in one step. Using the ICE Panel System, most homes are up and ready for interior and exterior trades (drywall and siding) IN DAYS INSTEAD OF WEEKS.

Reduce wall construction time & labor by 50%

 ICE FOUNDATION PANELS

Factory assembly of our panels minimizes on-site waste, reducing the overall waste costs and the hassle of constantly replacing a dumpster.

 

Our manufacturing process also ensures the quality of each panel - no more twisted or warped wood, everything is square and laser checked for accuracy before leaving the manufacturing floor.
