EcoRaft, The Lightweight, Eco-friendly
Cost Saving Raft Foundation System


Thermal Bridging Explained

On passive projects where linear thermal bridging is a very important factor, a greatly reduced amount of heat loss around the perimeter of the building is vital in order to achieve good SAP ratings. EcoRaft Double L does this by thermally separating the inner leaves of the wall from the outer leaves. This is achieved using AFT’s specially designed perimeter elements.

Eco Friendly Foundation

The EcoRaft Double L is the perfect foundation for those looking to minimise energy bills due to its ultra low slab U value and low linear thermal bridging.
