Air-Heated Radiant Floor Systems & Frost Protected Shallow Foundations
Legalett is run by specialist Engineers who are experienced Manufacturers of Insulated Slab, Foundation & Radiant Heating Products for the Building industry.
30 Years Experience in insulated foundation design and construction makes Legalett ICF Slab-on-Grade forming systems the preferred choice for reliable performance...
Legalett's range of building solutions include Unheated and Heated GEO-Slab Frost Protected Shallow Foundations, GEO-Passive Super Insulated Passive House Slab and Foundation Systems, (also ideal for LEED, ZNE, NZEB Construction), Insulated Basement Slab and Foundation Forms for monopour construction on poor or expansive soils and for an economical method for foundation construction on fill. Legalett also has slab forms for detached Garages and Outbuildings, and of course the renowned Air-Heated Radiant Floor Systems with both water and electric heated options.
A GEO-Slab Foundation, or GSF, is a type of slab-on-grade monolithic concrete slab and foundation system offering many advantages for building construction - initially designed for Frost Protected Shallow Foundations (FPSF) and popular today with the movement towards energy efficient, sustainable construction.
A GSF can be designed for three building types:
Legalett's GEO-Slab system is a composite design based on a combination of reinforced concrete and non-reinforced concrete and integral structural Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation.
The combination of EPS polystyrene foam and concrete is an ideal blend of building materials offering:
Legalett's GEO-Slab system offers a cost-effective green solution, providing efficiencies in price and in materials consumed through simplification of the foundation design and reducing a building's carbon footprint during construction and use. The cost and energy savings of a GEO-Slab Insulated Foundation are realized in a number of different areas.
Pipes are cast into the concrete slab through which warm air is circulated through a heating unit. With the aid of a fan, the warm air travels through the pipes heating up the whole floor/foundation. The system is simple, safe and economical!
The only ICF Frost Protected Shallow Foundation system in North America!
No Moisture or Mildew!
It just makes sense! Warm air is lighter than cold air and therefore rises. It is only logical that warm floors provide even comfortable heat in the whole room. An ordinary radiator or baseboard heater gives off a lot of heat, which quickly rises to the ceiling. The heat must be "forced" down towards the floor if you are to avoid cold feet. With the even heat distribution of the Legalett heated foundation, the indoor climate is extremely comfortable.
Legalett supplies air-heated floors. Our slab-on-grade design provides unique advantages for the building and building process. Air-heated floors are available, also, for basement and 2nd and 3rd storey pours.
