SLAB FOUNDATION FROM REINFORCED INSULATED CONCRETE – SOLID, STRONG, DURABLE
Slab foundation is constructed as an upturned ceiling slab with point support. Loads of bearing structures and the roof structure are transmitted to the foundation slab due to the tensile strength of a folded slab. The displacement and shear strength of the concrete belt and the plate of the bearing structure are stabilized by the pressure rod and tightening rod system. The L block is designed as a monolithic block of the strongest EPS 200 material.

The soil under the slab foundation must be built on a natural bearing substrate of mineral aggregate. When making excavations, it should be ensured that the bottom of the recess is not a place for the collection of soil and drainage water, and over time the aggregate will not mix with soil organic matter, resulting from soil and groundwater erosion.
The strength of the insulated slab foundation is ensured by a properly designed reinforced concrete slab, a selection of concrete, a pouring process and the proper performance of the earthwork.
When the conditions defined above are fulfilled, the L slab from EPS 200 material is stable and effective.
