Construction

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) has a unique set of properties which lend themselves to both large and small scale projects in the construction industry.

Strength - EPS offers exceptional compressive strength and rigidity.

Sound Deadening- Absorbs sound and limits noise transfer between one space and another.

Superior Insulation - Whether in a floor, wall or roof, EPS provides stable insulation performance across the life of a building.

98% Air - Lightweight solution for many construction applications.

100% Recyclable - Exceptional eco-credentials and is therefore ideally suited to the new generation of sustainable building projects.

DS Smith Plastics Foam Products is a leading Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) shape moulder in the UK, manufacturing a wide array of EPS components and returnable packaging.  We also have a wealth of experience and knowledge manufacturing HVAC components for the construction industry.

EPS has a huge role to play as one of the construction industries best performing and cost effective insulating materials, its other properties and superior compressive strength also make it hugely popular for large and small scale civil engineering projects.

From moulding complex shapes to polystyrene blocks, our materials are suited to many applications throughout this large and varied sector:

  • Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)
  • Wall, Floor and Roof Insulation
  • Railway Station Platform Extensions
  • Cavity Wall Insulation (Blown Bead)
  • Off-Site Prefabrication
  • Landscaping
  • Modular Builds
  • Void Fill (decommissioned swimming pools)
  • Pontoons
