Basement filling – Spain.
Filling an unstable basement with Bacel Hardfoam RG22 by our Spanish dealer.
Why was the basement filled?
The basement needed filling because the structure got instable over time.
Since our Spanish partners have done many jobs tankfilling for this partner, they were the first to be contacted for this problem.
Now our proven method is being widely used in similar situations all around the country because this is of course not the only building with this problem.
How was it filled?
Since the problem was discovered, struts were placed to carry the weight of the floor above till we could fill the voids.
For our safety the struts were kept in place during the filling and are left there. Also meaning that a lighter density of foam could be applied.
Filling was done by placing several black PE-pipes in statistic locations in the basement, with acces from the door. So whilst filling, we could chose from where the basement should be filled.
