Our Goal...Building Better using Eco Building Products that provide structural integrity and better insulation properties, while promoting energy efficiency, ease of use and price competitiveness.

What is MegaFound?

The MegaFound Insulated Foundation System offers a complete thermal wrap for your foundation that will significantly increase the R Value and performance of a Floor slab. Most of the heat loss is at the perimeter of a slab. The combined effect of perimeter and under-slab insulation is an almost doubling of the R value, which equates to halving of the heat loss.

MegaFound is a quick to install, insulated foundation system, consisting of individual panels that are 1200mm x 400mm x 65mm, achieving R2 well above the New Zealand Building Code.

Why use MegaFound?

MegaFound is the first step to a warm, healthy environment.

80% of heat is lost through a concrete slab that is not insulted. Save money right from the start of your new build by insulating your foundation. A thermally efficient home results in cost savings due to cutting down on large power bills.

 

Eco-Friendly MegaFound is an EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) known for its high insulation values. The MegaFound waste is fully recyclable and re-used in manufacturing picture frames or other building products.
