The new Thermacell 300 series has been designed here at ICF Systems Australia Pty Ltd. The four sizes of blocks have been designed so that the correct block may be chosen for any specific requirement. They have been designed as a result of more than 25 years’ experience in the ICF business.
Our blocks are manufactured from our own tooling by R/Max, the largest polystyrene moulders in Australia. The design of these four new blocks - the 125mm, 150mm, 200mm, and 250mm - has the latest technology built-in, resulting in the highest quality in materials fusion and overall strength.
Only the finest quality raw materials are used in our blocks. Our tooling is modern and up-to-date ... and quite expensive, but we don’t mind that because we believe that you can’t make a quality product using cheap tooling.
Thermacell blocks are made with quality and performance in mind - not just to make a cheap block.
