The demands for construction to be eco-friendly is only increasing. Unlike concrete, SureCav is made out of 100% recycled polypropylene.
SureCav is produced from 100% recycled polypropylene. The SureCav production process has a a sixth of the carbon footprint when compared to the making of concrete blocks.
This reduces both the need for new raw materials, and the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators.
Additionally, SureCav helps the environment by:
The concrete block / SureCav weight ratio is 80/1. For a typical three-bedroom house, that equates to removing the need for a 20- tonne concrete block delivery. For the average house, your entire SureCav system can be delivered on a single pallet weighing around 350 kg – resulting in a massive saving of transport costs, fuel and road use.
Without the need for a backing block, foundations become narrower. This results in a saving on the excavation and disposal of material, and a further saving on the concrete volume used in the foundations. Light in weight, SureCav is much easier and safer to handle on site than concrete blocks. This minimises the risk of injuries to the builders, and reduces the reliance on expensive forklift trucks.
House builders can gain up to 6.5% of floor space when the original outside dimensions are used, resulting in the optimum use of space. SureCav also ensures clean, moisture-free cavities that stop water penetration from driving rain, making the building envelope much more efficient and keeps the cavities clear from mortar debris.
