Eco-friendly products are made out of recycled materials and these recycle products help reduce the need for new raw materials and the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators (because waste can be diverted to making recycled products). Made from 100% recycled polypropylene, SureCav is produced form reground plastic, thereby reducing energy costs in production compared to virgin material. The SureCav production process consumes far less energy and almost halves the carbon footprint when compared to the concrete blocks it replaces, weight for weight.
100% recycled plastic
The concrete block/SureCav weight ratio is almost 100/1. For a typical three bedroom house this means that instead of having a 20 tonne concrete block delivery, all your SureCav requirements can be delivered or on a single pallet weighing around 350kg, resulting in a saving of transport costs, fuel and road use.
Without the need for a backing block foundations become narrower resulting in a saving on the excavation and disposal of material and a saving on the concrete volume used in the foundations.
SureCav, being light weight, is much easier to handle on site than concrete blocks reducing the risk of injury to the builder through lifting materials and any expense of fork lift trucks.
The house builder can gain up to 7.5% of floor space when the original outside dimensions are used, resulting in the optimum use of space.
SureCav ensures clean, moisture free cavities that stop water penetration from wind driven rain, making the building envelope much more efficient. The many benefits include no post construction problems from dirty cavities or driven rain. Click for details.
