ICF: A BETTER WAY TO BUILD
Building with wood frames and fiberglass insulation doesn’t compare to the quality and benefits you get using Insulated Concrete Forms. Homes built with ICF are stronger, safer, quieter, more energy efficient and much more.
Upland Corporation distributes these ICF products in New Mexico and El Paso: Flexx-Block®, Lite-Form® and Lite-Deck® are approved for both residential and commercial applications.

Flexx-Block® Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) incorporate recent advances in ICF technology to reduce overhead and labor on the job site.
The pre-assembled 16” tall by 48” long Flexx-Block units include a distinct folding web that allows the forms to fold flat for storage, packaging, shipping and handling.
Flexx-Blocks are available in 4”, 6”, 8”, 10” and 12” core widths, a new 4” tall “adjustor” block and all accessory pieces to efficiently build a complete monolithic Concrete wall system.
The Ultimate Dual Purpose Construction Grade Foam
FlexxBoard25 – a rigid foam insulation board that provides improved performance over XPS (Extruded Polystyrene) boards – at a lower cost.
Even better, when used under concrete, FlexxBoard25 bonds to concrete forming a superior thermal barrier, helping to prevent shifting, heaving and cracking.
Frost Protection that Bonds to Concrete!
FlexxBoard25 bonds itself to concrete resulting in a stronger more durable insulation. The foam will not rot or deteriorate when exposed to natural elements.
Competing colored foam boards (extruded Polystyrene) are known to separate from concrete because of its smooth finish. This will ultimately diminish r-value and result in the need to replace the concrete in the future.
LITE-FORM® is a lightweight form system that utilizes extruded polystyrene.
Lite-Form® is ideal for formed concrete work that will be stripped like stem walls and retaining walls, and the stripped forms can be reused many times.
LITE-FORM® is also available with concrete cores from 4” to 16”.
Lightweight. Versatile. Superior Sound Retention.
These are characteristics LiteDeck can offer. LiteDeck is the solid concrete alternative for conventional floor and deck applications in residential homes, commercial buildings, and safety structures.
The results? A quiet, secure concrete structure that is sustainable
Reduced Tilt-Up Form Panel Weight Allows Simple, Single-Point Face Lifting.
The patented LiteForm TILT® system is an insulated concrete form for tilt up construction. This system consists of expanded polystyrene panels and 18-guage steel attachment rails.
These concrete form panels provide a lighter, faster, more energy efficient casting bed for all kinds of site-cast, tilt-up concrete walls. Insulation panels can be incorporated as part of an energy efficient finished wall with a nominal R-30 insulating value.
Or, the panels can be modified to be used several times to cast conventional, non-insulated concrete walls.
