Waffle Pods

Waffle Pods are a strong yet lightweight polystyrene waffle pod void former system for concrete slabs. Designed specifically for residential, commercial and industrial markets, Waaffle Pods provide under slab insulation and support, while reducing the effects of soil movement, and lowering the amount of concrete required for a build.

With Waffle Pods construction is quicker and more cost effective compared to traditional concrete pours. A higher level of insulation is achieved through the natural air pockets in the expanded polystyrene and the moulded cells within the waffle pod design. The clean finish and non-irritating surface makes Waffle Pods suitable for a range of residential, commercial, and industrial applications. Waffle Pods are also suitable for use with any bracket and steel reinforcing mesh systems.

According to Expanded Polystyrene Australia (EPSA), expanded polystyrene waffle pods have contributed to a revolution in slab construction methods, enabling stronger, better engineered slabs to be constructed faster and cost effectively over traditional methods. Unaffected by water, EPS waffle pods are therefore safer, as there are no trenches to cave in during construction. The inclusion of EPS waffle pods in a slab also adds an insulation benefit of up to R1.0 (W/mk thermal resistance), which helps to reduce energy consumption in the home.

Please note that Waffle Pods are sold in out Queensland and Tasmanian operations, all other states and territories are serviced by Foamex.
