When there is a requirement to provide temporary access between floor levels of varying heights, the use of a ramp is often utilised.
Temporary ramps are manufactured from lightweight Filcor with a robust upper surface manufactured from either polypropylene or plywood.
The appropriate type of Filcor (Expanded Polystyrene) and upper surface material is selected based upon a number of factors including size, type of traffic i.e. pedestrian, plant etc and the length of anticipated use.
Each ramp is designed to suit the project specific requirements including the size, shape and profile needed. After / between uses the lightweight ramp can be easily removed and stored.
Temporary ramps are a lightweight, cost effective method of providing temporary access during construction and refurbishment projects.
Where a permanent ramp structure is required please refer to the Filcor – Void Formers page for further information.

The manufacture of Filcor is a low pollution process. Steam is he key component and the water is re-used many times. There is no waste in the process as all cut offs or rejects are recycled.
Filcor is 98% air. This makes Filcor a uniquely resource-efficient material with small carbon footprint.
Filcor is HFC, CFC and HCFC free and Pentane is used as its blowing agent. Pentane has a low Global Warming Potential* (GWP) of less than five. (The EU does not register pentane as a substance hazardous to human health or environment.)
Styrene, used in the manufacture of Filcor, occurs naturally in many commonplace items including strawberries, beans, nuts, beer, wine, coffee beans and cinnamon
