Airlite Plastics, an American company headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska better known under its flagship brand Fox Blocks, operates four plants in Canada; Bruce, Alberta, Starbuck, Manitoba, Cap-Pélé, New Brunswick and Montreal, Quebec.

In 2006, after 20 years of producing all brands of ICFs, Airlite Plastics introduced the Fox Blocks ICF brand as the latest generation of Insulated Concrete Form available from the manufacturer to the market.

Fox Blocks has 18 manufacturing plants throughout the United States and Canada. Fox Blocks ICF builds are energy efficient because of the thermal mass of the wall assembly. A Fox Blocks ICF building envelope keeps heat in during the winter and cool air in during the summer. Fox Blocks ICF walls are insulated with a solid surface of continuous insulation on the inside and outside wall surfaces, eliminating air infiltration and heat transfer issues. A Fox Blocks design offers a quiet environment with reduced sound transmission between the outdoors and your indoor environment, providing a calm, quiet, healthy, safe, and comfortable setting.

Fox Blocks wall assemblies work with all exterior and interior finishes, including stucco, brick, stone, fiber cement coating, other sidings, and drywall.

Third-party testing confirms Fox Blocks and their assembly exceed the safety, resilience, and durability requirements for Division 03 Concrete, Section 031119 ICF; Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG) Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) and FEMA-ATFP Federal Military and DoD Standards FEMA-ATFP.
