MK5 Pre-Fabricated Foundation forms are designed and manufactured by industry experts who focus on Extreme strength, durability, and ease of construction for the first time buyer, the Do-It-Yourself Builder.
The MK5 has been designed as a Structural Reinforced concrete slab subject to bending stresses in the same manner as a suspended reinforced concrete slab,
aka a bridge, poured on grade, upside down. Featuring High Yield, High Grade Post-tensioning THREADBAR the MK5 engages the slab as a
two way reinforced concrete, and therefore engages a larger area for resistance to downward and upward forces.
The Flexural strength of the MK5 Foundation, based on the overwhelming yield strength of the reinforcing bar and its position in the slab,
will not bend in any direction, which Eliminates the need for the Thickened Edge Slab!
The MK5 environmentally sensitive Foundation does not interfere with or weaken a flood zone.
The MK5 does not require excavation other then the removal of organics, therefore is not digging into the zone breaking up the hardpan,
on the contrary the MK5 compact gravel base adds to the height of the zone finishing 18” to 24”above the existing grade, thereby effectively moving the
Building away from the flood zone.
