Installing Post Tension Cables in your Wafflemat Foundation

Wafflemat slabs use standard post tensioning cables to provide the strength needed for single family, multifamily, and light commercial structures.

Our specially designed Wafflebox clips make it feel like second nature to align the reinforcing steel in your foundation. Simply follow the rows and fit the cables into their specified positions.

Notice that the brackets are perfectly sized to accept the cables, making a perfect fit every time.

Once the cables have been laid out and cut to size, they are ready to attach to the form board. The installation process is no different than with any other post-tensioned foundation. There is no special training or guess work required with Wafflemat.

Once your cables are installed and the concrete is placed, they are ready to be tensioned and can support tremendous amounts of pressure.

Wafflemat slabs are designed to provide the strongest foundation possible for your project. Your crew will appreciate the simplicity and ease of use, and you will enjoy the time and money saved, improving your bottom line.

How to pour concrete in your Wafflemat Foundation. A Wafflemat slab is an on-grade post-tensioned mat slab. There are no in-ground beams or deepened footings needed. After arranging Waffleboxes and installing your reinforcing steel, the Wafflemat Foundation will be ready for concrete. No special concrete mix is necessary with Wafflemat. For example, use a standard 3,000 psi and you’re ready to go. Notice how the Waffleboxes are able to support the weight of workers as they pour, so all areas are easy to reach. Where applicable, it is best to fill your retaining wall first, then pour a little on top of the boxes before filling the area in between. As the concrete is being placed, workers can begin finishing with floats and whirly birds. A Wafflemat slab usually takes 3-4 days from formboards to completion. And, as the Waffleboxes are made of recycled polypropylene plastic – a very ‘green’ material – and again, placed directly on grade with no in-ground ribs or deepened footings anywhere in the interior. Weather is not an issue as it is with alternative slabs, where rain can add several days to the cycletime. We want your next foundation to be a Wafflemat foundation.
