Foundation D+E:

Ribraft® Original

Polystyrene Pods

The original RibRaft foundation system revolutionised the way floors were constructed. Now, over 20 years later, ‘poly pod’ Raft floors remain the go-to for builders looking for cost efficiency, quicker construction and seismic strength. RFL has installed thousands of raft floors through all parts of the country, we are NZ’s leading concrete foundation installers.

Raft floors can be honed to expose aggregates or coloured to become your home’s feature floor.

Benefits:

Fast to construct

Sits on the ground
not in it

Seismically strong

Ribraft® X-POD®

Plastic Pods

Ribraft X-Pod is the next generation of the proven and trusted Ribraft foundation system. An X-Pod foundation uses plastic pods made from 90% recycled material. On site it offers zero landfill waste and it’s 100% polystyrene free. As with the original Ribraft system, a Ribraft X-Pod floor is faster to construct, more cost efficient and stronger than a polystyrene floor and conventional floors. Designed for TC2 soils or expansive clay ground conditions where strength and stiffness is key, X-Pod is a game changer.

Benefits:

100%
Recyclable

Constructed from 80%
recycled material

effective in expansive
soils where strength
and stiffness is key
