Wafflemat is the leading foundation system for single family, multi-family, and light commercial structures. Used in over 25,000,000 sf. of foundations across the USA, since its introduction in 1993. Wafflemat not only delivers superior performance when compared to other foundation systems, it delivers significant cost savings by reducing soils prep, concrete, reinforcing steel, and building cycle time. The voids formed by the Waffleboxes act as ‘relief valves’ that absorb heaving soils and eliminate significant structural cracking. Wafflemat provides the stiffest cross sections per cubic yard of concrete. In terms of environmental impact, a Wafflemat foundation uses less concrete and steel, and reduces excavation of soils and accompanying off-haul when compared to other systems. This results not only in lower carbon emissions, but also less erosion and transport of sedimentation in drainage and storm runoff waters, ultimately flowing into the ocean. Wafflemat assist builders in obtaining Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points, most likely in the categories Energy & Atmosphere, Materials, and Resources, and Innovation and Design process. Wafflemat has a track record of reliability that is unparalleled, it’s consistently one of the most economical systems in all construction, as reductions in soils prep, materials, and cycle time often produce cost savings of 20%-25% when compared to other foundations. You’re next foundation should be a Wafflemat Foundation.

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.
