Installing a pod floor? Use EXPOL Tuff Pods for superior strength and insulation
EXPOL Tuff Pods are an efficient and long-lasting concrete floor insulation solution. Made from expanded polystyrene (EPS), they are suitable for use with any raft or floating pod floor system in New Zealand and provide insulation and additional strength.
FROM THE FOUNDATIONS UP
An efficient building starts with an efficient foundation. EXPOL polystyrene underfloor insulation reduces a building’s energy consumption by reducing the need for heating. Efficient thermal protection through the use of EPS insulation can save up to 10% of a building’s heat loss.
THE CLEVER UNIMAX SPACER
Thanks to the EXPOL Unimax spacer, Tuff Pods are compatible with any raft or floating pod floor system. The spacer clips together to form any size spacing required. EXPOL Unimax spacers also work in conjunction with any other spacer type.
WHAT ABOUT WATER INGRESS?
Compared to other insulation products, expanded polystyrene (EPS) offers superior resistance to the ingress of water. Samples of EPS retrieved after 30 years in the ground showed less than 1% water content by volume. Boards periodically submerged over the same amount of time showed less than 4% water content.
