Geofoam has been used to make loading docks, ramps, and other raised flooring elevations throughout the United States and beyond. This lightweight fill material for voids is available with 1% deformation and compression strengths ranging from 18.6 psi to 2.2 psi. In fact, geofoam was used as the void fill for numerous high-profile renovation projects such as the $8 million Friley Residence hall renovation at Iowa State University. Geofoam was used to generate a slope for handicap ramps, stairway levels and myriad raised platforms. The EPS geofoam was created in the factory and subsequently delivered in a form that was immediately ready for installation.
