Matt Risinger's Video Tour of the Bautex Plant

Bautex ICF walls are incred­i­bly durable, but Matt Risinger puts our system to the test in this video.

Nothing shows strength and windstorm resis­tance quite like an air cannon. The high-speed two by four flying debris test shows just how much force a Bautex ICF block wall can withstand.

Bautex insulated concrete blocks make a higher per­form­ing and stronger wall system that surpasses the latest building codes, but is also simpler and faster to install.

Matt does a great job of explain­ing how our wall system works, starting with the Bautex Block made from expanded poly­styrene insu­la­tion and cement. These blocks get stacked on the foun­da­tion and then filled with rebar and concrete to form a strong, durable and energy efficient wall system. The Bautex Wall System provides structure, enclosure, and insu­la­tion — replacing several layers of materials and instal­la­tion steps in con­ven­tion­al construction.

One thing Matt likes about the Bautex wall system is its effi­cien­cy. The Bautex block has two inches of EPS foam on the inside and outside, and the middle sections of insu­la­tion are ten inches thick. The result is a wall system that is up to three times more insu­la­tion than required by the latest res­i­den­tial energy codes in Texas.

Besides extreme energy effi­cien­cy, key benefits of the Bautex wall system includes great sound reduction, resis­tance to mold and mildew, low main­te­nance, long-term dura­bil­i­ty, 4‑hour fire rating, and FEMA level windstorm protection.
