Fire Resistance of an ICF System
Southern California Wildfires 2008
An intoxicated driver was speeding down the street, fell asleep at the wheel.
The Pontiac Firebird left the road, became airborne, and slammed into the
exterior wall of the residence at a speed of approximately 90 miles per hour.
The ICF wall protected the home and most important, the sleeping
child in the bedroom on the other side.
