“It worked like a charm.” –Mark Bittner, City Engineer, Fargo, ND
St. Paul Downtown Airport, St. Paul, MN
How does the IFCW work?
•Base plate embeds are sunk deep into a poured concrete foundation.
•The anchored embeds secure vertical parting support posts.
How does the IFCW work?
•When wall is down, nothing but the storage bolts are visible.
•Storage bolts are either headed or headless, depending on access
requirements.
How does the IFCW work?
•Vertical parting supports are lifted into place, and anchor bolts are secured into
embeds
•In a typical installation, 3 workers can erect 1200 sq. ft. in 2 hours
How does the IFCW work?
•Unique base planks are fitted with specialized gaskets, and orient the wet/dry
side.
•Gaskets are on dry side, so planks fill during flooding, increasing stability and
integrity
How does the IFCW work?
•The patented plank design features a tongue and groove system
•Side thrust resistant
How does the IFCW work?
•Extruded aluminum planks simply stack vertically
•Planks weigh 5 lbs/lf, easily handled by two people
•No cranes or heavy machinery required for typical erection
•Multi-plank installation
How does the IFCW work?
•Compression channels attached to posts are ratcheted into set position,
forcing the plank face into tight contact with the vertical seal.
How does the IFCW work?
•Hold-down clamps are used to squeeze the planks against each other, sealing
the system horizontally
How does the IFCW work?
•For an IFCW™ over 6' in height, diagonal braces are positioned on both
intermediate and parting supports
•A pin connected floating foot is threaded to accept the tension rod for
adjusting the parting supports.
How does the IFCW work?
•Wall dimensions – 3500 lineal feet, 8 - 10 ft. high
How does the IFCW work?
•The installation includes several corner post installations

•Project also includes specially designed half wall area
How is the IFCW stored?
•The easy stacked and palletization of IFCW components translates to
minimal storage requirements
•Warehouse requires only cover, heat is unnecessary
