Building a ramp or loading dock? Geofoam is the solution
Geofoam has been used to make loading docks, ramps, and other raised flooring elevations throughout the United States and beyond. This lightweight fill material for voids is available with 1% deformation and compression strengths ranging from 18.6 psi to 2.2 psi. In fact, geofoam was used as the void fill for numerous high-profile renovation projects such as the $8 million Friley Residence hall renovation at Iowa State University. Geofoam was used to generate a slope for handicap ramps, stairway levels and myriad raised platforms. The EPS geofoam was created in the factory and subsequently delivered in a form that was immediately ready for installation.
