R-WALL a New, Innovative UK ICF system
R-WALL is a New Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) build system. Outer layers of R-Board (Extruded polystyrene XPS) are bound together by R-Rails and R-Ties. Courses are formed to desired height and the shuttered cavity is filled with concrete and allowed to set. The resulting monolithic structure is then ready for render or cladding systems to be applied externally and plasterboard application/ first fix services internally.
R-WALL is designed to be climate conscious and design driven; combining exceptional energy, environmental and build efficiency with great versatility. R-WALL offers developers, architects and home owners an innovative new cutting edge build system with no compromise.
No longer must a home owner, builder or developer accept slow construction, build schedules hampered by poor weather, or soft wood timber frames with short life expectancy's. Take the complication out of building without compromising on the strength, versatility, longevity and performance. Produce Eco homes with exceptional Energy efficiency, saving costs and future proofing the home. Build sustainably now and preserve our precious resources for future generations.
R-WALL is not restricted by modularity. The system offers Architects and home owners the freedom to design what they envision and builders the flexibility to build without restriction. R-WALL is the leading ICF system for wall widths to U-Values! Delivering a U-Value as low as 0.10, approximate lifespans of 100 years, fire ratings of 4 hours + and exceptional sound proofing and healthier living environments.
Future proof your build! Build energy efficient, healthier homes, build Net Zero
R-WALL creates super energy efficient, air tight homes with exceptional sound attenuation, zero cold bridging and the advantages of thermal mass. The structures are exceptionally strong, rot, infestation and flood resistant. To find out more about the performance levels of R-WALL click here.
An ICF with unrivalled versatility - Build anything with just 4 components!
They say the simple designs are the best! R-WALL's versatility is one aspect which sets it apart from its modular competitors. The versatility offered by R-WALL is almost limitless. R-WALL does not need specialist architect drawings, it can build anything to any and exact sizes and builders enjoy the freedom to adapt to the build environment. Find out more Click here.
A quick, cost effective, lightweight build technique which can be built in all weathers!
One of R-WALLs 2.5m blocks is equivalent to laying 14 standard concrete blocks and weighing 57 times lighter! The system is unaffected by wet weather conditions and therefore prevents build delays.
R-WALL components, our market leading edge
Continuous double layered higher performing closed cell insulation
R-WALL uses a stronger closed cell insulation known as Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) to form its R-Boards. This closed cell nature prevents water ingress, damp air migration, increases formwork strength, reduces onsite damage, and allows for narrower wall widths to achievable U-Values. Our R-Board has an exceptional compressive strength of 300kpa. To find out more about R-Board XPS click here
R-Rails strengthen the joint between courses and maintain straightness
R-WALL courses are joined with recycled plastic R-Rails. These rails maintain straightness in the walls and provide exceptional strength between courses. Increasing formwork and pour strength. Theses R-Rails providing fixings points within the R-WALL structure and being horizontal, you never miss a fixing!
Uncongested core, no re-enforcement as standard, creates a solid monolithic wall
R-WALLs core is uncongested. This allows for super fill efficiency's, helping to achieve a uniform concrete placement without the requirement for high levels of poker use during pour. As standard R-WALL does not require the addition of re-enforcement bars, therefore saving time and cost.
The resulting monolithic concrete wall provides an excellent sound, air and fire barrier
Moveable R-Ties with locator points
Perhaps one of R-WALLs most unique features is the moveable R-Tie. With a double clip feature which has been tested to hold 250kg in weight per R-Tie, this adds superior strength to the formwork. The R-Ties are designed to allow concrete to flow easily and have convenient locator points, for placement of re-enforcement bar (if required) ensuring the appropriate concrete cover is achieved.
Its simple - Alter R-Tie length to change the concrete core thickness
Alter the R-Board thickness to achieve desired Energy efficiency
Maximise Energy Efficiency with R-WALLs Insulated Floor system!
Did you know R-WALL also sells an insulated Flooring system. Our system can be placed under slab to create a complete envelope of insulation around the building. Underfloor heating pipes can be laid into this slab maximising Energy efficiency and minimising cost!

What our customers say
Brilliant product and exceptional customer service from Matt. So quick and easy to bild and incredibly strong. This has got to be the future of building
We wouldnt hesitate to recommend R-Wall. Fantastic service from strart to finish with excellent on site assistance. This system is the future of building!
We couldn’t be more pleased with R-Wall. We have used other ICF systems in the past, but this system not only looks the best during construction but the strength of the product is amazing. Pour day was nothing but a pleasure as was dealing with R-Wall from quote to completion. We would use them again and highly recommend to anyone wanting to build with ICF.
We are proud that R-WALL is has been inspected, approved and Supported by the government European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, Atlantic and Moor and the Leader group.
Build Better, Build for less!
R-WALL has been compared on many occasions to other construction methods including Timber Frame, Standard Construction, SIPS etc and customers have found R-WALL to be the cheapest way to build and achieve super energy efficient homes! Being UK based we are unaffected by Brexit or importation issues. Can you afford not to build R-WALL? Apply for a quote now!
