Made from recycled material and 100% recyclable with zero landfill waste. The all-new QPOD flooring system is the first choice for the eco-conscious.
QPOD™ Flooring System is designed to save the user time while providing an Eco-friendly alternative to the already tried and proven 3604 slab on grade and ‘Raft’ style floor configurations.
QPOD™ Raft Configuration is an above ground engineered flooring system, commonly known as a raft foundation, pod floor, waffle slab or floating foundation, that delivers real benefits over a conventional concrete floor and foundations. A grillage of beams within the concrete slab provides a stiffer and stronger final product than a conventional 100mm concrete slab on grade, and because of its inherent strength a deepened perimeter footing can usually be omitted. While boasting a radically improved ‘R’ Value due to the encapsulated air pocket formed.
The 4x Closed sided QPODs joined together create the equivalent volume of a traditional polystyrene pod at 1.1 x 1.1m, forming your ribs at 1200mm centers as the well accepted methods of the Raft structure. Obviously a minimal addition of concrete is used when choosing QPOD™ equating to 0.0278m3 per pod (or; 0.0193m3 extra concrete per finished floor per m2) this can be calculated using our QPOD™ material calculator.
