5 “It worked like a charm.” –Mark Bittner, City Engineer, Fargo, ND

6 St. Paul Downtown Airport, St. Paul, MN

7 How does the IFCW work? Base plate embeds are sunk deep into a poured concrete foundation. The anchored embeds secure vertical parting support posts.

8 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.

9 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

10 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

11 How does the IFCW work? The patented plank design features a tongue and groove system Side thrust resistant

12 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

13 Multi-plank installation

14 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.

15 How does the IFCW work? Hold-down clamps are used to squeeze the planks against each other, sealing the system horizontally

16 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.

17 How does the IFCW work? Wall dimensions – 3500 lineal feet, ft. high

18 How does the IFCW work? The installation includes several corner post installations

19 How does the IFCW work? The installation includes several corner post installations

20 How does the IFCW work? does the IFCW work? Project also includes specially designed half wall area

21 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

33 Cantilevered Struts IFCW system can include cantilevered struts in tight areas where standard angle struts will not work

34 Bulkheads IFCW can accommodate bulkhead areas using poured or bolt-on channels

35 The American Advantage Buy American…For Americans FCA is a 100-year domestic supplier All designs in code with ASCE and USCOE design manuals Over 200 sites across the country, many COE and FEMA sites
