The Waffle Pod People are Innovators in Waffle Pod Technology

In the past, domestic footings were based on a concrete beam method that usually required extensive, backbreaking digging. Apart from the manual labour involved, there was always the added difficulty of trying to accurately control the amount of concrete used. During wet weather trenches and steel would need to be cleaned again, hence adding further cost and lost production. In 1982 as an alternative, the Waffle Raft System was developed. Tests took place and the results was sensational. Polystyrene voids turned out to be the best, most environmentally friendly material to use, since it made the void former easier to handle and store, it was less expensive than the alternatives, and consistently performed well. As a bonus, it gave the building an insulated floor.

The Waffle Pod Ribbed Raft System has now been developed and recommended by many of the country’s leading consultant structural engineers to provide a more economical method of construction. The system is now used exclusively by most major builders.

Why choose us?

Because we have been at the forefront of Waffle Pod technology since the beginning. We supply thousands of Waffle Pods to hundreds of builders every week. We also offer advice on the best way to use Waffle Pods for your project.

 

  • SAVE MONEY, TIME AND EFFORT.The Waffle Pod Concrete Raft Slab Floor System is an innovative method of constructing slabs that uses moulded void formers which are arranged on a levelled building area in a grid pattern. This system uses less concrete than the conventional method of edge beam trenching, so the need for labour intensive digging is eliminated. Since the void formers are waterproof this system can even be used during wet weather conditions.
  • IMPROVE ENERGY EFFICIENCY.The polystyrene voids function as insulation pockets, significantly reducing heat loss through the floor.
  • INCREASE SLAB STRENGTH.Difficult or cut and fill soil area are no longer a problem. This system features greater strength and stiffness than conventional footing techniques, with higher resistance to cracking.
