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.
