Cellcore HX Plus is designed for use beneath reinforced concrete floor slabs to protect against the potential effects of ground heave with the additional benefit of providing insulation. The product consists of a cellular construction of Filcor EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) bonded to a Filcor insulation layer protected by a thin polypropylene sheet. All product variations have been designed, moulded and tested to tight tolerances to achieve the specified performance characteristics.
The standard range of products are available in a variety of depths and grades to suit most commonly encountered combinations of soil heave potential, concrete depth and U-value requirements.
Cellcore HX Plus is designed for use beneath reinforced concrete floor slabs as an insulated heave protection product.
Please note to establish the complete product specification, firstly the Cellcore HX depth and grade need to be determined to protect against the ground heave potential and to support the construction loading and then the thickness of the Filcor insulation necessary to achieve the U value required needs to be calculated.
