Application

Designed for use beneath reinforced concrete ground beams and pile caps to protect against the potential effects of ground heave.

Description

Comprising a cellular construction of moulded expanded polystyrene combined with a robust polypropylene board, which has been designed and tested to tight tolerances to achieve the specified performance characteristics. It is available in a variety of depths and grades to suit the most commonly encountered combinations of soil heave potential and concrete depths.

Features and benefits:

  • Reduces the upward force transmitted to the structure.
  • Wide range of depths and grades to suit most applications.
  • Meets the NHBC Technical Standards.
  • Consistent performance supported by extensive testing.
  • Available with integral EPS insulation, permanent formwork for ground beams or voids for ventilation of ground gases by request.

Application:

Designed for use beneath reinforced concrete ground beams and pile caps to protect against the potential effects of ground heave.
