Time- and cost-efficient
Costs of works related to soil excavation, and sanitary, drainage and frost-protection layers may be spared due to the reduction of the excavation height.
By using foam glass, the losses resulting from the trimming of other insulation materials may be spared as well.
The Energocell® insulation of the raft foundation can be executed at about 80% of the price of the styrene raft foundation insulation.
Furthermore, superstructure works also become redundant.
Following the incorporation of the granules the concrete for the raft foundation may be immediately poured, and consequently the length of construction time will be reduced.
In the long term, this leads to the reduction of heating costs (it is a nearly zero-energy sustainable system).
Costs of foundation works will be reduced.
The number of work processes decreases as well.
Due to its low weight, the Energocell® foam glass ensures quick installation.
The granules are delivered to the construction site in bulk or in big bags, then spread on the work surface, and compacted to the required degree.
After demolition foam glass can be reused, and it doesn't generate any waste disposal costs.
