Lightweight Polystyrene Waffle Pods: Diamond Pod™ by Foamex

Foamex Lightweight Polystyrene Waffle Pods or Diamond Pods are a lightweight yet sturdy polystyrene waffle pod void forming system, a concrete pour alternative that has greatly contributed to the evolution of the present slab construction methods. For years, Foamex has been continuously developing new and innovative expanded polystyrene and extruded polystyrene for residential, commercial, and industrial requirements.

These waffle pods include an underneath slab insulation and support solution for small to large-scale projects and are compatible with any bracket or steel reinforcing mesh system. Building and construction markets are giving the Diamond Pods greater attention for their higher concrete slab quality, thermal and energy-saving attributes, time efficiency, convenience, and improved safety measures for both construction professionals and the public.

Higher and More Reliable Slab Quality

Despite its lightweight profile, Foamex takes pride in their Diamond waffle pods structural durability and dimensional stability. Unlike traditional concrete slabs, the Diamond Pod system absorbs pressure in case of ground heave, allowing the slab to remain structurally intact. Furthermore, these pods produce no ozone-depleting gases like CFC or VOC, and are built in compliance with Australian Building Codes and Standards.

Energy-Saving Attributes

The insulation level of Diamonds Pods is comparatively higher than a traditional concrete pour because of its natural air pockets in the expanded polystyrene, and shaped cells located within the waffle pod design. The inclusion of expanded polystyrene (EPS) pods in concrete slab append a thermal benefit of up to R1.0 (W/MK thermal resistance), which maintains a balanced room temperature regardless of the season.

Time Efficiency & Convenience

Foamex Diamond Pods are light in weight and are easy to handle, which effectively minimise construction time and load. Digging of deep trenches are also no longer needed during construction.

Improved Safety Measures

As a member of Expanded Polystyrene Australia (EPSA), Foamex built the waffle pods with fire retardant material to reduce fire risks, and to provide better property protection plus public safety.
