Stylite EPS Geofill is a lightweight, cellular plastic, alternative to traditional fill materials such as soil or concrete. Manufactured off-site, it provides the greatest possible control of a civil engineering project, enabling you to design for key geosynthetic functions. Inherently multifunctional, the product can be used in a wide range of civil engineering applications such as earthworks and structural fill, transportation and architectural.

Benefits:

  • Lightweight compared to other fills.
  • High compressive strength.
  • Easy to install and cut on-site.
  • Lower overall cost of construction.
  • Reduced loads on underlying ground.
  • Reduced construction programmes.
  • Available in standard or bespoke blocks.
  • Minimal water absorption and permeability.
  • 100% recyclable.
  • No HFCs, CFCs or HCFCs.

Six variations available.
