Strength sets us apart
Unipods™ are a stronger, more reliable and cost efficient way to build concrete slabs for residential and commercial construction. Utilising state of the art engineering, the unique brick pattern of the Unipod has been designed for superior strength in foundations, more efficient construction and insulation, and for a more sustainable solution to concrete slab construction. Utilising the latest technology, Unipods are made from moulded poystyrene and are the most reliable and cost effective waffle pods on the market.
Unipods™ are available in three standard thicknesses measuring 1090mm square or can be custom made.
- 225mm - Suitable for "M" Soil Classification Sites.
- 300mm - Suitable for "H" Soil Classification Sites.
- 375mm - Suitable for "E" Soil Classification Sites.
- Manufactured at any custom size required.
- Cut to fit within construction plan dimensions.
Independent testing has confirmed that Unipods™ are more than 20% stronger than other pods in the market, making Unipod® one of the safest options for waffle pod slab construction.
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.
Strength testing at Unipod®
With the support of RMIT professors and engineers, Unipod® developed a rigorous strength testing method to simulate tradespeople walking over Unipods as they are manufactured and again before despatch.
- Strength testing is conducted hourly and at 5 days post curing.
- Unipods are not despatched unless they meet strength testing criteria.
- Over 7 million Unipods supplied with only 0.017% recall rate.
Unipod is a proud member of the Waffle Pod Manufacturers of Australia.
