PolySteel UK Limited is a British company based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England, with manufacturing facilities in Northampton, England and in Livingstone, Scotland. This means that our customers can reduce their carbon footprint as the PolySteel ICF can be transported to site without having to travel very long distances or half way around the world. The product that is produced is called an insulating concrete form or ICF. PolySteel is one of the very few companies in the ICF industry based in the UK who manufacture in Great Britain.
When we were looking for a modern method of construction (MMC) to get involved in, we researched the many ICF manufacturers world-wide, and after a great deal of time and negotiation we realised that American PolySteel, LLC had the qualities and high standard of customer service that was needed to give our customers the high level of support we wished to deliver. American PolySteel has been established for 30 years and is considered to be one of the leading ICF brand names in North America. In 2005 PolySteel UK obtained the rights to manufacture and distribute here in the UK and represent the product not only in Ireland but also in Europe.
In 2006 PolySteel UK went on a programme of extremely rigorous testing of its insulated concrete formwork that had been manufactured here in the UK. This testing was supervised by the British Research Establishment and whilst doing these tests it was noted that it was likely that a ‘World Record’ had been achieved as concrete was pumped into our ICF walls which were 3.6 metres high and the width of the opening was 60 centimetres in one continuous pour! This did not cause the forms to bulge or have a blow out. We believe that the reason for this amazing result came about due to the high quality and robust design of the PolySteel forms. It was very pleasing that PolySteel UK after 6 months of testing was awarded its well deserved BRE Certificate of quality.
PolySteel UK since its inception has managed to have supplied the PolySteel insulating concrete forms to projects to all parts of the UK and Ireland, one of which is the largest development of ICF houses in the UK and the other is a seven storey building consisting of apartments and when completed will be the UK’s tallest ICF structure. PolySteel UK completed an eco house in Cheltenham which was featured on Channel 4 prestigious televised programme "Grand Designs”. There are many innovative designs where our PolySteel ICF’s have been used successfully have a look at our Gallery on the PolySteel website http://www.polysteel.co.uk/Content/Gallery/Default.aspx or http://www.youtube.com/user/polysteeluk
PolySteel UK is confident that the unique design of our insulating concrete formwork provides greater strength, longer fire resistance, and dimensional stability in any structure you wish to build. Some examples of the diversity of application are: - re-enforced walls, basement/cellar walls, swimming pools, splash pools, commercial buildings, malls, schools and houses.
