STYRO Geofoam VS Earth Quake
STYRO Geofoam’s unique resilience and shock absorbing property helps the buildings to withstand shocks, tremors, jolts generated by earth quake; When a building shakes during an earthquake, the soil adjacent to the building puts additional pressures on its walls as it tries to move back and forth, STYRO geofoam plays as a buffer material between building’s walls and neighboring soil and protect the structures from additional pressures. STYRO geofoam which deforms in a controlled manner when placed against a structure can reduce earthquake pressures by 40-50 % percent.
- Compared with compacted soil, STYRO geofoam is competitive when total construction costs are considered
- 50-60 % faster construction compared to traditional methods.
