EPS Geofoam for Road Widening
EPS geofoam is a lightweight foam plastic that’s manufactured into blocks and commonly used as a structural geofoam backfill. As EPS geofoam has a unit density that can be roughly as low as one pound per square foot, it’s an extremely lightweight alternative to soil that’s nearly 100 times lighter than most soils. We provide Geofoam blocks for road widening as per your requirements.
EPS geofoam is primarily used in the construction of highways, bridges, embankments, and parking lots, but there are myriad other uses as well. Due to the fact that geofoam is a soil replacement, it can be covered to look like a wall or a natural slope, making it an aesthetically pleasing option. Instead, geofoam can be an ideal option to reduce dead and lateral loads on underground pipes, culverts and tunnels, while at the same time providing high thermal insulation values that protect against temperature fluctuations.
