The Hobbs Story

The Hobbs Logic

PROBLEM:
Although the ICF block concept is excellent, its design is inherently outdated.

1 The ICF block concept has been around for over 40 years, with no significant design modifications since the inception of the product
2 Since the patent expired decades ago for the ICF block design, the ICF block has become a “Me Too” product which explains why there are so many brands of ICF blocks with little or no difference
3 The old ICF technology uses a “prescriptive method”, which inefficiently uses more concrete than required structurally instead of only using concrete where it is structurally necessary
4 Installation of the block ICF systems are tedious and labor intensive resulting in out of level, bowing, and snaking walls with a significant amount of bracing adding to the cost
5 ICF blocks have built-in weakened planes because of the massive amounts of horizontal and vertical joints (ie: a wall that is 200’ long and 9’ high has 1650 L.F. of weakened planes or joints)
6 Attachment points are limited for fastening interior and exterior finishes

SOLUTION:
Hobbs Vertical ICF solves the problems of traditional ICFs and engineered a smarter, greener and easier ICF wall system!
