Fox Blocks® Insulated Concrete Forms using Design Basics
Design Basics worked with Fox Blocks® to adapt 70 home
plans for use with Fox Blocks® Insulated Concrete Forms.
Fox Blocks® ICF's offer many advantages to traditional block
or poured foundations and wall framing.
Fox Blocks® ICF wall systems offer a high-quality, construction
friendly block design at a lower price. It gives you all the
benefits of a traditional ICF block – energy efficiency, durability,
safety, cost savings and comfort – with special features
that make it a better value.
Fox Blocks® uniquely clever design helps speed construction
- Easy-to-use reversible, pre-assembled blocks.
- Exceptionally strong ties.
- Special corner brackets for additional strength and easy application
of veneer finishes.

Our name says it all. The fox was chosen because it is a very clever
animal that is well adapted to both the coldest extremes and the
very hottest. Like Fox Blocks® ICFs, the arctic fox is well suited
for some of the coldest environments while the desert fox lives comfortably
in the searing heat of the desert.

Like the fox, Fox Blocks® is the design that outsmarts the others — clever,
environmentally friendly, quick and adaptable to even the most extreme
"Fox Blocks® wall systems were very easy to install since
they are reversible and interlock well together. The support
provided by the field staff was outstanding. Our crew plans to
homes with Fox Blocks® next year. Thanks a million! "
