Joining the ranks of Halliburton,
Kellogg, Brown and Root and Raytheon you will now find American
PolySteel helping to rebuild the war torn country of
Afghanistan. The United States Military wanted a faster,
simpler, and more efficient way to complete construction
projects. American PolySteel was the ICF of choice and the
initial order has recently shipped.
The Afghanistan rebuild is not
the first project for the military and American PolySteel.
PolySteel has been the military’s preferred ICF for many
projects including; the Homeland Security Training Facility at
Fort Knox, Kentucky and support facilities at Ellsworth Air
Force Base in South Dakota.
Why PolySteel? The United States
Military knows what many have already learned about the benefits
of building with PolySteel including, ease of construction,
safety, strength and blast protection all important elements in
Afghanistan’s massive reconstruction effort.
It was only a matter of time that
the strength of PolySteel buildings would be coveted by the
military. Homeowners and builders have been aware of the
superior strength of PolySteel walls for many years. The threat
of war and terrorism has made the ICF product more mainstream.
Media outlets are increasingly discussing the benefits of Safe
Rooms and the strength of concrete walls. Now that the United
States Military trusts PolySteel to rebuild Afghanistan
PolySteel feels that we’re not only building a better world, but
also a safer world.
Headquartered in Albuquerque,
New Mexico, American PolySteel has been manufacturing superior
insulating concrete forms since 1978. Networks of distributors
are working with homeowners, builders, architects, and now the
government to create superior, stronger, energy efficient homes,
and commercial buildings all across America and now around the
