Benchmark Foam EPS Stoop Fill for facilitating a quick, easy and stable installation.
Forming the footings for concrete slab stoops outside of commercial and residential entrances often takes crews several hours over the course of multiple days. Between setting the forms, pouring the concrete, backfilling and compacting the soil, the process quickly becomes time-consuming in an industry where time is everything.
Made of expanded polystyrene foam, Benchmark Foam EPS Stoop Fill is used as a super lightweight fill material that is simply placed and backfilled before pouring the concrete slab.
EPS is often used in under slab construction and can be produced at higher compressive strengths to meet any project need. Placing concrete slabs reinforced with footings outside entry doors is a common building code and is recommended to keep the stoop in place for the life of a building.
Since all jobsites are different, consult with the project engineer to ensure soil conditions are satisfactory and adequate groundwater conditions are met.
