ARXX Corporation has announced the launch of reFIT, a new, fast, easy, cost-effective and energy-efficient way to finish and insulate basements and interior spaces. reFIT represents the latest addition to ARXX’s portfolio of innovative and energy-efficient green building materials. ARXX has built its success through delivering high-quality green building solutions and is recognized as a pioneer in the development of Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs).
ARXX leveraged the technology of the existing ARXX Edge ICF product line to design a system that meets the needs of homeowners and contractors who want a fast, easy, cost-effective and energy-efficient way to add comfortable living space. The reFIT system finishes and insulates basements and interior spaces using less material, taking fewer construction steps and yielding a finished living space that saves on heating and cooling costs and that is comfortable and affordable. reFIT is a unique product in the market, providing a continuous insulation barrier with no thermal bridging, eliminating unwanted air infiltration, and that is made of material that is resistant to mold, mildew and rot. The reFIT system requires no additional vapor barrier, has embedded attachment strips for easy installation of interior finishes and with the connected shim and wall clip can straighten and plumb the finished wall while installing the reFIT insulation panels.
Industry experts estimate that 50-70% of the energy costs of home ownership go towards heating and cooling the home. Sealing and insulating the home is one of the most cost-effective methods of reducing greenhouse gases, improving return on investment and lowering cost of ownership. There are many programs by state and province across Canada and the United States that provide government incentives to support homeowners in their efforts to seal and insulate their houses.
The reFIT system is comprised of lightweight, safe, easy-to-handle high R-Value vertically interlocking insulation panels that are drywall ready with easy-to-attach wall clips and adjustable shims. reFIT panels have a reduced carbon footprint as EPS insulation returns up to 200 times the amount of energy required to produce it. As well, reFIT panels have no off gassing, CFCs, HCFCs or VOCs. Installing reFIT is less expensive than finishing a basement or interior space using conventional construction methods attributable to the reduced material, competitive price point and reduced labor involved.
reFIT is offered throughout North America through ARXX’s established distributor and dealer network. To learn more about finishing and insulating basements and interior spaces with reFIT visit www.refiticf.com.
