X-Pod is the next generation Ribraft foundation system, the future of foundations, available today. It is a fully engineered strong solution using 100% recyclable pods in place of the polystyrene component used in standard Ribraft floors. X-Pod floors are built on the ground, not in it, providing great strength and greater seismic performance. For TC2 soils, or on expansive clay ground conditions there is no better foundation solution. Like it’s proven predecessor Ribraft, X-Pod is faster to construct, more cost efficient and seismically strong when compared to traditional footings based foundations.
CONSTRUCTION OF A X-POD FOUNDATION
With X-Pod, we prepare the building site in the same way as a standard Ribraft foundation - we scrape the building platform, construct the perimeter boxing, install all floors internal engineered components including, steel, X-pods, plumbing, electrical wiring, then the concrete.
Once floated and cured we remove the boxing and hand over your floor to your builders.
BENEFITS AT A GLANCE
Quicker to build
Excellent thermal rating, compatible for underfloor heating
Less site excavation & soil removal
Can be honed for terrazzo finish
We can project manage your entire floor construction, managing all subcontractors for you such as earthmovers, drainlayers, electricians and plumbers, delivering a completed floor to you and your builder at the end of the project. We believe better service makes a better foundation and a happier customer.
THE RFL EXPERIENCE
THERE’S MORE THAN CONCRETE BETWEEN OUR EARS
While we specialise in the design and installation of concrete raft floors, we also have years of knowledge and experience with the construction and installation of block walls, retaining walls, (including waterproofing and backfilling).
