An Introduction to Frost Heave Prevention Systems

Sep 11, 2018

What is frost heaving? Frost heaving happens when soil expands upwards due to ice forming underneath the ground. Frost heaving occurs when freezing temperatures penetrate the soil and ground beneath the flooring. This can lead to a myriad of negative impacts for a business as the expansion of soil weakens the foundation of the floor, which can even result in cracks in the walls or pillars. Thousands of businesses suffer losses from damage to valuable inventory and ... Read More
