TENAPORS L EPS elements for concrete plate foundations is designed for construction of plate foundations in small residential buildings. Combining elements with insulation plates, a template is made where one can pour concrete for monolith plate-like foundations. This allows you to obtain a monolith structure with no direct access to ground and no heat bridges. Such a structure is not only durable against ground sedimentation and deformation but it also has great technical thermal properties.
TENAPORS L EPS element is derived from Scandinavia where it is commonly used due to its excellent technical thermal properties. The heat conducting coefficient λcl of the used polystyrene foam is 0.034 W/mK. The long-term water absorption does not exceed 5% and the material guarantees excellent preservation of technical thermal properties over the course of a long time.
TENAPORS L EPS element is made of material EPS 150 where pressure stress at 10% deformation is 150 kPa. The most important indicator in the construction of foundations is long-term load durability – in this case 45 kPa or 4.5 t/m2. There are elements available from other class EPS material (pursuant to a client’s request), but such products are rarely used. The technology with plate-type foundations and L EPS element is most commonly used for construction of 1-2 story wooden structure buildings in the private sector where the long-term load durability of elements is fully sufficient. Such foundations are also used for building private houses of aerated concrete or other construction blocks.
