Ezee-crete foamed concrete is a very light, cellular concrete. It is made by the addition of a prepared foam or by the generation of gas within the unhardened mixture. Roofing is probably the most widespread application of foamed concrete. Foamed concrete two benefits when is used for a roof.The first benefit that it provides a high degree of thermal insulation.The second benefit is that it can be used to lay a flat roof to falls,ie.to provide a slope for drainage.foamed concrete is strong enough to support foot and even vehicular traffic on roofs. also foamed concrete is much lighter than slopes made from mortar screeds.This means that a roof with a slope made of foamed concrete imposes a lower loading on the structure of the building.
Foam concrete is often used en masse to fill voids and provide support for top layers. Predominantly used in trench reinstatement and as an alternative to type 1 stone backfill,which would need compaction every 100mm and so labour intensive and time consuming.
Foamed concrete is an ideal backfill material for utility trench reinstatement. Foamed concrete is air-entrained and free-flowing and fills voids and undercuts ensuring the trench is completely supported once set. It reduces labour costs, is self-levelling and requires no site storage of fill materials. Also, it requires no compaction avoiding damage to services and reducing the risk of vibration related illnesses and doesn't settle after placement. Due to its low density, it can be easily re-excavated should the need arise.
Foamed concrete has many other applications including decommissioning of septic tanks and filling voids and underground storage tanks like fuel tanks etc. For more information or to find out how foamed concrete could benefit your project then call us today, our friendly and professional team are always happy to help either via email or over the phone.
