SAVES TIME, SPACE AND COST
Ground heave is the upward movement of the ground surface caused by the expansion of clay soils when they absorb water.
It can damage structures and infrastructure if not properly managed.
Conventional solutions often include the introduction of a polystyrene cellular structure or void former. These are placed
beneath the foundation, creating a void that allows for the upward movement of the ground without affecting the structure
But clay isn’t the only upheaval on site… polystyrene is!
Oversized polystyrene void former due to the inability to compress sufficiently.
Leading to excessive transport,
handling and storage costs.
Approximately 10% wastage and expensive disposal costs.
Due to its molecular breakdown and static nature.
Saving labour & muck away costs
Vast reduction in transport costs and less space needed for storage
Quick to assemble, less breakage and easy to cut with no mess
VOID-TEK is made entirely from Polypropylene Fluted Board which has high strength and durability. In contrast, conventional heave protection systems that are constructed with a polystyrene core are easily damaged and are liable to break and crumble, reducing performance, increasing an already unpredictable wastage allowance and ultimately cost.
The high strength and durability of the VOID-TEK flat-packed design, minimises damage wastage.
Even when deployed into position, it is very difficult to damage under foot. When minimal waste is generated, there are no messy polystyrene chips to dispose of unpredictable wastage allowance and ultimately cost.
VOID-TEK is extremely easy to cut with a compact Stanley knife, due to the hollow and polystyrene free nature of the construction.
VOID-TEK can also be ordered and configured to specific size requirements for use beneath reinforced concrete ground beams and pile caps.
