Firth’s new RibRaft® X-Pod® is an eco-friendly, user-friendly foundation system that offers designers, installers and homeowners a more sustainable foundation option.

Firth looked to the future when developing the next generation Ribraft® foundation system, focusing on the unique challenges and preferences of the New Zealand building environment. The result is a new, innovative foundation system that is more effective, more sustainable and easier to install.

Top features of the product include:

  • The RibRaft® X-Pod® system comes with impressive environmental credentials, being made entirely from recycled material.
  • X-Pod material is also 100% recyclable, which means zero landfill waste in the future.
  • Another clever design innovation is that the pods are stackable, vastly reducing storage footprints and making them easily transportable. Enough pods for a 180sqm home can be delivered on a single axle trailer.
  • The system is also incredibly flexible. Pods are adjustable, meaning they can fit any size foundation.
  • And installation has never been easier – steel rods simply click into the pods and self-lock, reducing steel ties, inventory and wastage.
  • The Firth RibRaft® X-Pod® patented foundation system comes with easy to follow technical support.
