EPS Geofoam Applications: Slope Stabilization
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Geofoam is used by construction professionals around the globe for all manner of road and bridge construction purposes. One area that EPS Geofoam really excels is in the stabilization of slopes. Unstable slopes can be costly, both in monetary and time perspectives. Using EPS Geofoam, you remediate unstable slopes by removing a portion of the existing soil and replacing it with our lightweight, highly durable expanded polystyrene geofoam solution. This unloads the head (or top) of the landslide and improves its stability.
Using the method above, you may be able to avoid excavating and replacing the entire slide mass to achieve the optimum factor of safety against future sliding, leading to significant savings. Highly versatile, EPS Geofoam can be used in both soil slopes and rock slopes.
