Alternative construction products are entering the construction market on a large scale with increasing acceptance in the industry, due to cost, time and productivity factors.
One such product, waffle board, is a smart approach to modern buildings and uses the latest polystyrene technology. Developed from expanded polystyrene, the waffle pod slab system at https://nicsonsbp.com.au/products has a long list of advantages over conventional concrete substrates.
For starters, minimal earthwork is required for the waffle sheets as no excavation is required. Trenches used in traditional concrete works can fill with water in inclement weather, requiring additional time and expense to drain before the concrete can be poured.
EPS insulation on the waffle slab with a layer of concrete on top ensures a significant thermal R value at the base of the structure. waffle sheets also offer faster and cheaper construction than traditional castings because less concrete is required.
Blocks made of expanded polystyrene are light and easy to work with, which reduces the amount of work. In addition, the environment is less disturbed because the slab is on the construction site and not in the ground.
The main advantages of waffle plates include simplicity of construction using interconnected components; increasing the energy efficiency of buildings through foundations; building slabs that are stronger than conventional concrete foundations; and economy in terms of transactions required and construction time.
