Geofoam, a lightweight material made from expanded polystyrene (EPS) blocks, is gaining popularity as an alternative material in the construction of stadium seating for theaters, college lecture halls, and other establishments.

Hunt Valley, MD, January 27, 2010 – Geofoam has seen widespread use in construction projects as a filling material due to its lightness and compression resistance properties. More recently, however, these lightweight blocks made from expanded polystyrene (EPS) are gaining popularity in the construction of stadium seating for commercial movie theaters, churches, college lecture halls and other establishments that need to be to able to seat hundreds, if not thousands, of visitors at any given time.

Headquartered in Hunt Valley, Maryland, Universal Foam Products is one of the leading providers of expanded polystyrene (EPS), STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam, Geofoam, extruded polystyrene and other types of foam-based products for a variety of applications. The company’s EPS products can be custom-engineered to meet the exact specifications of any given project.

A major advantage of Geofoam over traditional filling materials such as wood chips or soil is its resistance to factors that can cause instability in a construction project. Because the material can be engineered to have a specific density and compression resistance, the material is not subject to settlement and lateral pressures. Aside from this, the material can also be shipped pre-cut to a project’s location, making it possible to avoid on-site reconfiguration of the material, which could easily delay a project.
