EXPOL Tuff Pods are extremely strong expanded polystyrene (EPS) blocks designed to provide a quick method for creating a concrete slab floor without the need to dig footings or build concrete block perimeters. 

Up to 10% of a building’s heat is lost through an uninsulated slab. Expanded polystyrene insulation provides excellent thermal protection, helping to create a warm, dry, and healthy indoor space. 

Suitable for all raft or floating pod floor systems used in New Zealand, EXPOL Tuff Pods reduce preparation work, construction time, and concrete needed for foundations. 

Used to create 100mm concrete ribs throughout concrete floors. 

Made from environmentally safe expanded polystyrene (EPS), EXPOL Tuff Pods help reduce the energy consumption of a building by protecting the concrete floor from heat loss. 

Using EXPOL Tuff Pods significantly reduces slab construction time. This insulation method is suitable for barrowed or pumped concrete.
