Foundations and Earth Retaining Walls

  • To reduce or avoid heat loss into the ground, the underground layers of a building must be properly insulated.
  • Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) can be used for this special purpose in industrial, zoo technical and civil buildings.
  • Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) can serve as an insulating material for most floors such as refrigerated cold stores, industrial floors or floors that have heating pipework.
  • Hydrophobic Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) is recommended for these types of applications, it is very effective as an insulator, and also serves drainage against rising damp behind earth-retaining walls or structures.
  • Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) has an excellent drainage property
  • It doesn’t age
  • Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) decreases soil pressure on structures.
  • Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) is an excellent thermal insulator
