Foamex Diamond Pods
Foamex Diamond Pods are a lightweight yet strong void former system for concrete slabs.
Foamex Diamond Pods are leading the way in concrete slab filling solutions, providing concrete slab support, thermal insulation, reduced effects of soil movement, whilst lowering the amount of concrete required.
Using Foamex Diamond Pods, construction is quicker and more cost effective than traditional pours because less concrete is required. Good insulation is achieved because of the natural air pockets in the expanded polystyrene (EPS) and the specially designed moulded cells within the Foamex Diamond Pod.
The unique shape of the Foamex Diamond Pod also has many benefits including:
- Lightweight and easy to handle
- Reducing the effects of soil movement
- Decreasing the amount of concrete required
- Strong & Flexible.
- Long Term R-VALUE (thermal values).
- Low water absorption.
- Recyclable (sustainable material).
- Comparatively inert.
- Dimensionally stable.
- Produces no ozone depleting gases.
- Does not contain CFC’s or VOC’s.
The Diamond Pod’s clean finish and non-irritating surface makes Foamex Diamond Pods suitable for a range of residential, commercial and industrial settings and applications.
At the heart of Foamex Diamond Pod production is the Minuteman Diamond Pod Molding Machine. The machine’s state of the art technology and innovative design uses no water and produces less waste thereby ensuring the Diamond Pod is environmentally friendly to produce.
The Foamex Diamond Pod system complies with all relevant Australian Building Codes and Standards. They are also suitable for use with any bracket and steel reinforcing mesh systems.
The Lock-in Spacer holds the Diamond Pods in place, allowing the Diamond Pod to slot into the lugs located at each corner of the Lock-in Spacer. The Lock-in Spacer ensures the Diamond Pod is tight and secure, holding the entire system together.
