"A foundation system that offers both cost savings and excellent thermal performance"
Insulslab SFRC (Steel Reinforced Concrete) is a complete system, based on a type of raft foundation which comprises a series of interlocking expanded polystyrene pods, forming a substantially rigid ‘waffle’ shaped slab (waffle foundation system). Steel fibre reinforced concrete is poured over the top to form the finished foundation.
Not only is Insulslab SFRC proven to save over £1,000 per plot on foundation costs (based on an average plot size of 50 sq/m) when compared to traditional raft or beam and block methods, it also achieves typical U-values for detached domestic buildings of 0.11 W/m2K. - This is based on an exposed perimeter divided by area (P/A) ratio of 0.48.
