 Stylite EPS Geofill Applications - Retaining Walls
 Stylite EPS Geofill is ideal as a lightweight backfill where a retaining wall is to be built. Because EPS Geofill is so light the lateral pressures imposed on the retaining wall are significantly less than what would otherwise be the case with a traditional backfill such as soil.
This in turn means that the retaining wall does not need to be designed to withstand such high pressures if the backfill soil in the active zone behind the retaining wall is replaced with EPS Geofill. This design approach can therefore result in savings in the cost of the structure itself.
 Key Benefits of EPS Geofill

• High compressive strength
• Easy to install and cut on-site
• Reduced construction programmes
• Available in standard or bespoke blocks
• Minimal water absorption & permeability
• Resistant to rot & durable
• 100% recyclable
• No HFC’s, CFC’s or HCFC’s
