Addressing the problems
caused by ground heave
VOID-TEK

SAVES TIME, SPACE AND COST

Ground heave.
A major problem when building on clay

Ground Heave Concrete Slab Damage

THE PROBLEM

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.

Ground Heave With Polystyrene Void

THE CONVENTIONAL SOLUTION

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
above.

But clay isn’t the only upheaval on site… polystyrene is!

EXCESSIVE DIG

Oversized polystyrene void former due to the inability to compress sufficiently.

Cross

BULKY

Leading to excessive transport,
handling and storage costs.

EASY TO DAMAGE + EXCESSIVE WASTE

Approximately 10% wastage and expensive disposal costs.

Cross

HAZARDOUS - BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Due to its molecular breakdown and static nature.

Introducing Void-Tek technology

VOID-TEK arrives on site flat packed only 31mm high. Simply lift into an upright position. Pull down the support flaps and lock into deployed position.

Revolutionary strength & flexibility

VOID-TEK Flatpacked

RIGID CONSTRUCTION

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.

VOID-TEK Rigidity

STANDS UP TO THE TEST

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 cut to size

SHAPING UP FOR THE JOB

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.
