EPS Geofoam Applications: Retaining and Buried Wall Backfill

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Geofoam has many building and construction applications, including common uses such as road projects, bridge construction, and rail embankment build-up. Another common use for EPS Geofoam is backfill behind retaining walls and buried structures, where it greatly reduces lateral pressures on structures.

Horizontal pressure acting on a retaining wall is directly proportional to the weight of backfill being used. While traditional, heavier backfill options require a more robust structure to compensate, structures using EPS Geofoam in the backfill soil do not require such a robust retaining wall. 

At the same time, the use of EPS Geofoam backfill behind retaining and buried structures also limits the horizontal forces that might develop during catastrophes such as earthquakes, making it an ideal choice of fill material for these sorts of environments. 

No matter the type of construction application it is used in, EPS Geofoam saves a tremendous amount on cost, time, and labor, when used in lieue of other traditional offerings.
