The Advantages of RMAX GeoFoam® in Highway Construction

RMAX GeoFoam® can be used as an embankment fill to reduce loads on underlying soils, or to build highways quickly without staged construction. RMAX GeoFoam® has been used to repair slope failures, reduce lateral load behind retaining structures, accelerate construction on fill for approach embankments, and minimize differential settlement at bridge abutments.

Because RMAX GeoFoam® weighs only 16 to 32 kilograms per cubic meter, large earthmoving equipment is not required for construction. After the material is delivered to the site, blocks can be easily trimmed to size and placed by hand. In areas where access is limited, RMAX GeoFoam® can be constructed vertically and faced, unlike most other lightweight fill alternatives. It also can be constructed in adverse weather conditions.

Some typical applications of RMAX GeoFoam®

  • BRIDGE ABUTMENTS
  • LIGHT WEIGHT ROAD
  • SFOUNDATIONS
  • WEIGHT REDUCTION FOR UNDERGROUND UTILITIES
  • RETAINING WALLS
  • GROUND STABILISATION OF STEEP SIDE HILLS
  • WEIGHT REDUCTIONELEVATION CHANGE / STADIUM SEATING
