Shelter Enterprises rigid EPS foam insulation products are durable, versatile, energy efficient and cost-effective solutions for construction and architectural applications.
EPS insulation delivers consistent performance in tough weather conditions, is termite and mold resistant, and above all is CFC free (ozone safe). With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why EPS is the preferred insulation among architects, designers, builders and contractors.
Shelter Bridge Abutments
The advantages to using Shelter EPS Geofoam for Bridge Abutments include:
The use of Shelter EPS Geofoam in earthworks and structural applications provides the benefit of reducing both vertical and lateral pressures on below-grade structures. Soil creates nearly 40 pcf of lateral pressure. If a structure is below ground level, this lateral pressure increases by a factor of 10. The use of Shelter EPS Geofoam completely eliminates this lateral pressure.
The use of Shelter EPS Geofoam is a cost-effective engineering solution.
