Geofoam Applications and Uses

Geofoam provides the lightweight solution to your geotechnical project.

Traditional earth materials are heavy and can cause settlement, instability or lateral pressures. Other fill materials such as formed concrete, waste tires, soil, woodchips, wood fiber, etc., have higher densities, are variable in their makeup and are not engineered, due to field execution variables. They also have limitations in handling and can be weather sensitive, thus requiring staged construction and/or preloading, surcharging and draining, etc. Foam-Control Geofoam maximizes onsite installation efficiency. Geofoam can arrive at the job site prefabricated and ready to place. It is easily inventoried and handled. Installation is not delayed by weather.
 
Foam-Control Geofoam can provide a lightweight solution to your project. Geofoam has been successfully used in the following applications.
