Product Performance

Strength and Flexibility

  • Maximise strength whilst minimising volume.
  • Cushioning beneath the steel reinforcement makes structure more durable and dimensionally stable.
  • Structure remains inert.
  • Engineered designs provide superior strength.
  • Safe and strong enough to walk on. 

Thermal Insulation

  • EPS is highly energy efficient.
  • Thermo-dynamic advantages are generated when on-ground slab is filled with air pockets.
  • Insulating layer between structure and ground.
  • Improved energy efficiency of house or building.
  • Building warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer. 
  • Insulation benefit of up to R 1.0.

Decreased Concrete Usage

  • Slab requires less concrete, saving time and money. 
  • Brick pattern and sharp edges around top of Unipods™, means less concrete is required.
  • Concrete flow into underside of cut pods is restricted. 

Cost effective 

  • Allow for more accurate calculation of concrete quantities.
  • Reduced concrete waste and costs. 
  • Minimised OHS risk and site injuries. 

Impervious to Water 

  • Wet weather does not impede on quality. 
  • Low water absorption. 
  • Unaffected by water.
  • No sagging or buckling even in the most adverse of weather conditions. 

Safer, Quicker, Easier to Install

  • Light-weight and easy to handle.
  • Delivered on site ready to install. 
  • Minimised labour time on site and associated costs. 

Reliable

  • Unipod Interlock System holds Unipods together securely to avoid movement during concrete pours. 
  • Interlock System ideal for building sites exposed to high winds. 
  • Slab preparation is more reliable and sturdy during slab construction.
