NEW RibRaft® HotEdge® – Get the edge

NEW RibRaft® HotEdge® – Get the edge
June 3, 2016

Firth’s RibRaft® pod floor system has been a godsend to many, particularly following the earthquakes in the Garden City which prompted the development of a range of floors designed and engineered for seismic soil types. The most innovative of these is the dual slab RibRaft TC3® floor, designed to be re-levelled as often as seismic activity affects the house/floor. Plenty have tried to replicate the original, but there is only one RibRaft® floor, and only Firth RibRaft® carries a CodeMark® certificate.

As we head into an era where energy efficiency and sustainability defines how homes are designed and built, Firth RibRaft® comes with the only integrated thermal edging that neatly and effectively assists in attaining GreenStar and Homestar points. The RibRaft® HotEdge® system has been 3D modelled by BRANZ. It is a fully integrated slab edge insulation system that is easy to handle and install.

Unlike ‘bolt-on’ alternatives, RibRaft’s HotEdge® panels are placed inside the RibRaft® foundation boxing before RaftMix® concrete is poured, allowing it to be part of the foundation and creating a seamless finish. Evenly spaced Tornado screws ensure HotEdge® is fully integrated within every floor slab, creating a seamless aesthetic for the homeowner.

The product has been extensively tested for both clad and brick construction and is currently being used in developments at Hobsonville, Auckland.

For durability, seismic and thermal R-rating, get the Edge. Specify a RibRaft® HotEdge® floor.
