Beaver Plastics Ltd.

ENGINEERS

Todays Engineers or other design professionals are looking for new innovative building systems and insulating materials that stand up to the rigors of engineered design specifying high compressive strength, protective materials for grade beams or structural slabs, radon barriers, etc. EPS today has evolved dramatically over the last 10 to 15 years into the most adaptable, efficient and cost-effective rigid insulation available.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is an innovative, high-performance and low-cost building material engineered to deliver long-term and reliable energy efficiency. EPS rigid insulation from Beaver Plastics provides the most flexibility for design specifications. High compressive strength from 10 PSI to 100 PSI, high R-Values with no thermal loss over time, protective structural void products as well as high performance insulation for roof structures, vertical wall assemblies and below slab applications.

Beaver Plastics Ltd. is a solutions-driven EPS manufacturer with a long history of developing innovative products and construction solutions in Expanded Polystyrene. Our product offering is extensive and spans several business categories. Builders, General Contractors and OEM businesses rely on creative solutions and high-quality EPS products delivered directly or through our net-work of Distribution Partners. For over 50 years we have been focused on customer driven, new product and new market development.

Residential Construction

Beaver Plastics has developed an innovative product offering for the residential construction market designed to provide code compliant and cost effective solutions for energy efficient, safe and comfortable buildings.
Halo Laminated GPS– is our newest innovation, launched 4 years ago and specifically designed to offer builders cost effective solutions to meet or exceed new building codes as we move toward Net Zero, Zero Carbon or Passive Design. Halo is a high R-value laminated insulation that is unique, offering 3 distinct products specific to building application – both below-grade and above grade.
Terrafoam EPS Rigid Insulation – is our white EPS rigid insulation board available in Type I, II and III as well as high strength (HS) varieties including 30 and 40 psi compressive strength. Terrafoam Rigid Insulation products are produced from inert closed cell expanded polystyrene (E.P.S.) and have excellent resistance to freeze/thaw, zero capillarity, low moisture absorption characteristics and zero off-gassing.
Chrome GPS – is our high-performance graphite rigid insulation board available in Type I, II III and IX (30 psi). This new high-performance technology using graphite enhances the thermal performance of polystyrene resulting in a high R-value insulation, zero loss in long term thermal performance and very low embodied carbon.
Logix Insulated Concrete Forms – is an energy efficient building system designed for long-lasting, disaster resilient, sound proofed, energy-efficient buildings that will use a fraction of the energy required to heat or cool conventional buildings.
Heat Sheet – Heat-Sheet is a unique insulation panel designed specifically for hydronic heating applications in concrete slabs. Its primary functions are to conserve energy, maximize efficiency and reduce installation cost and labour.
Insulworks – is the first insulation panel designed especially for hydronic heating applications with integral slots for the hydronic tubing. Its primary functions are to conserve energy and reduce cost and labor. Insulworks provides an efficient thermal barrier between the heated slab and the underlying ground.
Frost Cushion – is our proprietary ’fingered’ protective void form designed specifically to be used under concrete grade beams to compensate for frost and moisture-induced swelling of underlying soils that might otherwise lift or fracture concrete structures.
Dynaflex – is a light EPS ‘solid’ void form product designed to protect grade beams, some structural slabs, pile caps and other concrete structures from the forces of freezing subgrade materials or expansive clay soils.

Commercial Construction

Beaver Plastics understands commercial contracting. It’s a fast-paced industry that is demanding and always changing. It is critical to find an industry partner that can provide the right solution in a timely manner. We manufacture our products ensuring a quality result that meets your specification requirements and stands up to the rigors of your commercial site – every time.

Terrafoam EPS – is a rigid EPS insulation panel with excellent resistance to freeze/thaw, zero capillarity and low moisture absorption, uses no blowing agents, does not off gas and has no loss of R-Value over time. Terrafoam Types I, II, III and IX are produced from inert closed cell expanded polystyrene (E.P.S.) 2ft x 8ft or 4ft x 8ft sheets from ½” to 48” thickness available.

Terrafoam HS – High compressive strength rigid EPS insulation meeting 30psi, 40 psi, 60 psi, 80 psi and 100 psi. Terrafoam Rigid Insulation products are produced from inert closed cell expanded polystyrene (E.P.S.) and have excellent resistance to freeze/thaw, zero capillarity, low moisture absorption characteristics, zero off-gassing and zero loss in R-value over time. Terrafoam HS is available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses to meet your project requirements.

Chrome GPS – Graphite insulation is today’s most environmentally sensitive polystyrene insulation. This new high-performance insulation technology maximizes thermal performance with a low carbon foot print. 2 ft x 8ft or 4ft x 8ft sheets from ½” to 48” thickness available.

Frost Cushion – Frost Cushion is was designed specifically to be used under concrete grade beams to compensate for frost and moisture-induced swelling of underlying soils that might otherwise lift or fracture concrete foundations.

Dynaflex – DYNAFLEX Void Form is an expanded polystyrene (EPS) product designed to protect grade beams, some structural slabs, pile caps and other concrete structures from the forces of freezing subgrade materials or the swelling of clay soils. Two stronger versions of Dynaflex (Md-2 and Hd-4) are also available.

DYNAVOID™ – a proprietary product developed by Beaver Plastics to meet the requirements for a moisture tolerant protective void form material to be used under structural concrete. Dynamic Inclusion, mechanically responsive to expanding soils, separates Dynavoid from typical void form products.

HALO – from below-grade to above-grade, inside and out, Halo® is the Advanced Graphite Insulation System that features a series of rigid insulation products, each one perfectly designed for specific sections of the building envelope.
