Commercial BlockThis bracing system is designed to allow users to build tall walls without the need for intermediate floors in ICF building. It creates a solid monolithic concrete wall that has a 4-hour fire rating. Incorporated into the foam block is a 25-gauge metal stud (not plastic) located on 8-inch centers. The center of the stud is open to allow concrete to flow through it and has six built in rebar chairs three on the top and three on the bottom.
