3 Technologies in 1 - SAV+R

Putting insulation on foundation walls just got better. In the past we have put insulation on wall to not only provide R-value but it could help protect the damp proofing and reduce condensation. Insulating the foundation came with a cost as we have learned that standard 150 & 250 insulation is too stiff. Lateral pressures on the walls have increased causing more issues.

SAV+R 3 tech in 1

Plymouth Foam has developed a 3 in 1 insulation board that can reduce issues caused by insulating foundations - SAV+R Foundation Protection™. This new product has been designed to not only insulate but also drain moisture better and reduce lateral pressure by unto 40%.

There are 3 advancements with RID Technology are important in todays construction to not only preform better but also reduce liability. R-I-D Reduced-Insulate-Drain

Reduce - Reduce lateral pressures by up to 40% using SAV+R Foundation. When lateral pressure pushes on the SAV+R foundation board, the integrated Stress Reducers™ can “absorb” this pressure and help save your foundation from failure. SAV+R has been designed to handle backfilling pressures, compacting pressures, clay or soil swell pressures and long-term lateral pressures.

Insulate - SAV+R uses Engineered EPS which provides a stable R-value for the life of the foundation. SAV+R is available with R-values of 5, 10 or 15. SAV+R Engineered EPS does not leach harmful chemicals into soil, has very low moisture absorption, is not affected by the freeze-thaw cycle, contains no ozone depleting chemicals and is 100% recyclable.

Drain - Water leaking into foundation walls via hydrostatic pressure can cause serious issues. SAV+R incorporates Easy Flow Drainage Pathways™ (EFDP) to move water quickly to the foundation drains. EFDP can help reduce insulation moisture absorption, reduce hydrostatic pressure, reduce frost heave, accelerate drying and can add longevity to the waterproofing.

SAV+R™ Foundation Protection incorporates one of the best new advancements in construction - RID Technology™. This technology has been developed by Plymouth Foam to help protect and RID your foundation issues before they start. RID Technology combines the features of Reducing lateral pressure, Insulating and Draining.


Advantages of RID Technology

Reduce - Reduce lateral pressures by up to 40% using SAV+R Foundation. When lateral pressure pushes on the SAV+R foundation board, the integrated Stress Reducers™ can “absorb” this pressure and help save your foundation from failure. SAV+R has been designed to handle backfilling pressures, compacting pressures, clay or soil swell pressures and long-term lateral pressures.

Insulate - SAV+R uses Engineered EPS which provides a stable R-value for the life of the foundation. SAV+R is available with R-values of 5, 10 or 15. SAV+R Engineered EPS does not leach harmful chemicals into soil, has very low moisture absorption, is not affected by the freeze-thaw cycle, contains no ozone depleting chemicals and is 100% recyclable.

Drain - Water leaking into foundation walls via hydrostatic pressure can cause serious issues. SAV+R incorporates Easy Flow Drainage Pathways™ (EFDP) to move water quickly to the foundation drains. EFDP can help reduce insulation moisture absorption, reduce hydrostatic pressure, reduce frost heave, accelerate drying and can add longevity to the waterproofing.

In the past, designers had very few choice in foundation insulations. With the advancement of Rid Technology, which has been incorporated into SAV+R Foundation Protection, designers and building owners can select a superior product. Now a designer can be on the cutting edge in foundation technology and at the same time reduce risk. It is very simple to Value Engineer SAV+R over XPS or other insulations. SAV+R provides more value and costs less. Make the change too Plymouth Foam’s SAV+R Foundation Protection and SAVE money, Save energy and Save the future.
