Burmon ICF Ledger

Burmon’s ICF Wood & Steel Ledgers utilize the Burmon ICF Connector System, a revolutionary double-threaded cylinder bolt assembly that connects and anchors wood ledger brackets, wood and steel ledgers, joist hangers, I- joists, beams and trusses to insulated concrete forms (ICF) walls.

  • Fast & easy to install
  • Less expensive than ordinary ledger connectors
  • Revolutionary double-cylinder bolt technology
  • Ledger bracket, bolt & washers are supplied
  • Template for marking out bolts is supplied
  • No drilling through steel plates
  • ICFWL designed for 1 1/2 & 1 3/4 wood ledgers

For more information, visit the Burmon ICF Ledger product page.

The cylinder bolt assembly is engineered with high capacity sheer points, which more efficiently absorbs the energy of the unsupported load transfer span, between the polystyrene inner and outer ICF wall. The embedded legs of the cylinder tube have openings to receive concrete and rebar (optional) and the high capacity bolts connect directly to the concrete within the ICF wall, enhancing strength, stiffness of connection, function and durability. USA Patent Application Number 17/120,457.
