What is Geofoam?

Geofoam is a lightweight fill in compliance with ASTM D6817 that gives you control over your geotechnical project. Foam-Control Geofoam is engineered to give you the greatest possible control for your project application: from design and timelines, to materials and costs, and — ultimately — control over your results

FOAM-CONTROL GEOFOAM

Among the most versatile lightweight materials available. 

Geofoam maximizes onsite installation efficiency.

Geofoam arrives at the job site ready to place.

Use Foam-Control Geofoam for these Applications:

RETAINING
WALLS

Geofoam is used as backfill behind retaining walls to greatly reduce lateral pressures.

LIGHTWEIGHT
ROADS

Geofoam is used to replace heavy fill materials to reduce settlement.

BRIDGE
ABUTMENTS

 Geofoam is used to safely support highway loading without over-stressing the underlying soils and to reduce differential movement.

PLAZA
DECKS

Geofoam is used to create topography and reduce loads on underlying structures and services.

STADIUM
SEATING

Geofoam is used to form tiered seating in locations such as auditoriums, movie theaters, and gymnasiums.

FOUNDATION
FILL

Geofoam is used to reduce the load on underlying compressible soils to minimize settlement.

UTILITY
PROTECTION

Fill loading is reduced by using Geofoam instead of heavier fill materials.

SLOPE
STABILIZATION

 Geofoam is used for slope stabilization and improves slope stability.

BUILDING
FILL

Geofoam infill is simple to handle on site, making it easy to adjust building floor elevations.

Experiences with Geofoam

“Building the work was very easy with the geofoam.  We excavated the area and then put in the subbase and laid in the geofoam blocks by hand. “It was a great first experience with a very useful product.”

ANSELMO PRESISTO P.E., | PROJECT MANAGER | GRECO CONSTRUCTION

“Geofoam was a tremendous success on this project and
will be my first choice when facing difficult settlement
situations in the future.”

MARK KIMBLE | WASATCH CONSTRUCTION

“In any roof-deck renovation, it’s critical to reduce the weight of the building materials because the building is only designed to support a maximum amount of weight and that can’t be compromised.”

ISHMAEL JOYA | PROJECT MANAGER | WOLFF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECURE
