What is the RibRaft system?
RibRaft is one of the most common and popular concrete flooring solution in New Zealand. It can be used on building sites where the soil is weak. Additional to this, it is often a cost effective method as the speed of construction reduces labour costs. This is due to its innovative design using components that simply fit together. Unlike conventional methods that distribute weight over small zones (like individual footings) or at individual points (like pile foundations), RibRaft disturbs the weight of a structure over the entire area of a building. This provides greater “seismic strength”, while also providing top notch insulation.
What is the XPod System?
Xpod is the next generation of RibRaft. It swaps out the polystyrene components of the RibRaft system for light, easy-to-handle pods. Weighing in at only 3kg a pod, all the pods for a 180sqm home are able to be transported on a single trailer, further reducing the requirement to hire additional equipment for transportation. On top of this, when Firth designed the XPod system, they had one big goal in mind. Sustainability. All pods are made from 100% recycled materials, reducing landfill waste while simultaneously speeding up construction time.
