EPS Concrete Block-Out Used to Anchor Prior to the Concrete Being Installed

Concrete block-outs made of expanded polystyrene are common in the construction industry. They are lightweight, economical, and relatively easy to remove after the concrete is set. Whether being used to create a bolt pocket or anchors to secure an awning or canopy EPS is the material of choice among contractors.

These block-outs, used on a project in Memphis, TN, were made from nominal 1 lb density EPS. They were set in place and anchored prior to the concrete being installed. After the concrete set up, the steel plate and 2x4s were disconnected and the EPS was removed.

“Universal Foam Products was our Geofoam supplier for a stadium seating project in New Orleans. The material was delivered on time and cut to size. We installed the project in less than 3 hours with a 4 man crew without cutting a single piece of foam. We look forward to doing more projects with your company in the future.”
