NEW RibRaft® HotEdge® – Get the edge
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.
