Ledger Connector System (ICFVL)

The ICFVL Ledger Connector System is engineered to solve the challenges of mounting steel ledgers to insulated concrete form (ICF) walls. Simpson’s ICF component of the system, the ICFVL, is designed to provide both vertical and lateral, in-plane performance. The system is still quick, versatile and easy to use but now provides so much more! There are many benefits over traditional anchor bolting, including better on center spacing in most cases, faster installation and no protrusions.

Simpson’s ICFVL is made from galvanized, 14 gauge steel. The embedded legs are embossed for additional stiffness and the hole allows for concrete to flow through and around the connector. The exposed flange on the face of the ICF provides a structural surface for mounting a steel ledger.

Material: ICFVL – 14 ga (68 mil) 50 ksi

Finish: Galvanized – G90



Snap a chalk line for the bottom of the ledger.
Mark required on center spacing.
Use ICFVL flush to the face of the ICF.
Cut kerfs as marked.
Insert ICFVL flush to the face of the ICF.
Place concrete
Steel Ledger Attachment

Position the ledger level to the chalk line and against the ICFVL.
Attach with four 1/4-14x 3/4′, #2 drill point screws (not provided).
All screws should be located at least 1/2″ from the edge of the ICFVL.
Space screws evenly.
