about GS Foam Concrete Ltd
We provide foam concrete as a void fill solution for multiple applications across the UK.
The base material consists of varying quantities of cement, sand and water (dependant on strength and consistency required) which forms a slurry type mix. This mix is usually supplied in ready-mix concrete trucks.
The foam additive is produced on site through our specially adapted foaming generators and injected into the back of the mixers to produce the foam concrete. The volume of foaming added is dependent on the target density. There is a minimum amount of room required for the foaming process unlike our competitors who require enough room to site large concrete silo’s and mobile batching plant equipment. The foam generator and all required equipment arrive on site in G S Foam transit vans and we only require enough room for the ready-mix truck and a concrete pump if required.
Once the foaming is complete the foam concrete is then ready to be placed either direct from the truck or via GS Foam Concrete’s specially adapted pump. There are many advantages to using foam concrete, due to its high fluidity it is self compacting and self levels to find each and every void that requires filling. These properties save on time and cost of equipment needed for conventional concrete.
Minimal staff are required on site and are all fully trained in the operation of GS Foam Concrete’s specially adapted equipment. Foam concrete is a well bonded body of concrete once hardened, does not impose lateral loads on adjacent structures. It also achieves good compressive strengths and thermal insulation properties.
After an initial 24 Hour curing period you will be able to notice the unique characteristics of the product and its appearance which resembles volcanic rock lava.

Why use GS Foam Concrete?
We have over 30 years’ experience in the development of foam concrete mix designs which are suitable for multiple applications and can fulfil all our client’s project requirements.
Our system is unique and allows for on-site manufacture of foam concrete using our own specially adapted patented equipment.
Minimal GS Foam Concrete staff is required on site and they are all fully trained.
Our production system does not require a large amount of space on site as we do not require silos.
All of our plant and equipment was designed and built in-house and we currently offer a wide range of materials for many applications which we are continually enhancing to further our range. Ongoing development will further improve the properties of foamed concrete in order to extend its potential uses within the construction industry.
Environment & Sustainability
G S Foam Concrete take our responsibility towards the environment very seriously and are currently carrying out trials with some of the largest readymix concrete companies in the UK to replace a percentage of Cement and Quarried material with by-products such as PFA (Pulverised Fuel Ash) and recycled material such as Glass. Any further information on these trials can be obtained by contacting us and will be published on our website.
