Providing innovative slab forming systems Legalett are North American experts in their field.
GEO-Slab is an insulated shallow foundation product needing no frost walls, GEO-Passive is a customized insulated shallow foundation needing no frost walls, optimised for Passive Home requirements and GEO-Basement is a buried structural slab for builders who want to do their own pre-formed insulated basement slabs (especially useful for poor soils and building on fill)...
Frost Protected Shallow Foundations, or FPSF’s, are alternatives to deeper and more costly conventional foundations that are used in regions that experience seasonal ground freezing and the potential for frost heave. FPSF design allows footings to be founded above the traditional design frost depth, by insulating the foundation and ground in a manner that prevents the ground freezing below the foundation.
