  • Lap and ledge design creates a strong, seamless surface to lay the slab • 50 m2 ground floor slab can be installed and poured in a day
  • 50 m2 ground floor slab can be installed and poured in a day
  • Permanent insulation for the lifetime of the building
  • Zero lateral thermal leakage
  • Deliver’s U values for the floor capable of meeting and exceeding code 4
  • Excellent compression properties
  • Suitable for suspended, ground bearing or full raft slab
  • Resistant to moisture
  • Unique patented design provides a void for service ducts and ventilation

Product information

Eco-Slab™ ™ is a modular system consisting of 1m2 interlocking rafts and a thickened edge beam.

The lap and ledge system can provide U values of 0.13 robust and strong Eco-Slab™ ™ provides a stable working base on which to lay the slab.

The thickened beam edge of 200mm ensures zero lateral thermal leakage

Certifications

  • Local Authority Building Control, National Type Approval Certificate 209-8-7052.03
  • Certified by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) RCB326A
  • Accepted by NHBC
  • Manufactured to comply with EN ISO 10211-1:1996BS EN ISO 13370:1998
  • Quality Assured: ISO 9002 ISO 14001

Sustainability

Eco-Slab™ is manufactured from Carbon Enriched Expanded Polystyrene. At every stage of its life cycle, from production to recovery or recycling, Eco-Slab™ ™ offers exceptional eco-credentials. All manufacturing processes comply with current environmental regulation. No CFC’s or HFC’s are used in it’s manufacture.

 EPS is 98% air and 2% plastic and uses, as its base material, styrene monomer. The monomer is a by-product of petroleum and naphtha produced during oil refining which provides a ready and continuous source. Styrene also occurs naturally in many foods such as strawberries, coffee beans, beer and wine.

Eco Slab™ is  A+ rated in the BRE Global Green Guide  with outstanding thermal insulation qualities which makes it ideally suited for use in floor insulation and sub structures.

A+ is the highest standard a building product can achieve after being rigorously evaluated on specific environmental impacts in comparison to other building materials.

Eco-Slab™   does not deteriorate with age, which ensures that Eco-Slab™  is able to give constant insulation for the full service life of the building.

EPS is non-toxic, chemically inert, non-irritant and rot-proof. Fungi and bacteria cannot grow on EPS and it is insoluble and non-hygroscopic.

EPS is rodent-proof and having no nutritional value, so does not attract vermin.

Making Eco-Slab™  from EPS gives maximum return for minimal us of resources. Each kilogram of oil used in producing Eco-Slab™  saves at least 400 litres of oil for heating homes and workplaces over a 50 year period

Creating a Low Carbon Ground Floor Slab

The Eco-Slab™ ™ system provides a new, fast and cost saving construction method for ground floors, combining insitu formwork with permanent insulation for the lifetime of the building. Light weight and easy to handle Eco-Slab™  is ideal for casting a ground floor slab in small, contained spaces with limited access, such as a back gardens or where road access is limited. Used in place of block and beam, it has excellent thermal properties, complies with all regulatory requirements and can cut costs by 30% and installation time by up to 80%. It works with traditional building methods or used in conjunction with other technologies, will form the base for a thermal envelope.

Environmental and Cost Benefits of Eco-Slab™

  • Cost of replacing the ground floor can be reduced by up to 30%
  • No specialist knowledge required for installation
  • Reduces site activity by up to 80%
  • Manufactured by Jablite from EPS - A* rating in the BRE Green Guide to specification and fully recyclable
  • Carbon footprint reduced by up to 80%
  • Site waste reduced to 4% recyclable waste
  • Ideal component for creating a thermal envelope when used in conjunction with other technologies

 

The lap and ledge system gives enhanced U values capable of achieving values of 0.13 and provides a stable working base on which to lay the slab.
