Unipod has a strict Quality Assurance program to guarantee pod strength and height. Unipods are despatched when they meet strength testing criteria, ensuring only high quality, reliable waffle pods are delivered to site, so that customers can rely on structurally sound concrete slabs and minimised OHS risk.
Currently, there is no Australian standard for waffle pod strength and as an industry leader, Unipod is driving the importance of high quality waffle pods in the construction industry. Unipod continues to implement Quality Control systems to reinforce the importance of strength and safety in waffle pod slab construction.
