Frequently asked questions

EziYaka Conqra EZIYAKA

Do we really not need concrete infill with Eziyaka long Lightfoot?

No, all you need is the pad and the 350mm stainless steel pin for a brace pile, or alternatively the 250mm galvanised pin for ordinary piles in conjunction with a 6 or 12 Kn pile to bearer or bearer to joist connector pack.

Does Eziyaka Lightfoot need specific design?

Yes. Contact Conqra for a suitable design engineer.

Can anybody install Eziyaka Lightfoot?

Yes.

What size Eziyaka product do I need for a pile foundation?

In the building code for foundations, an ordinary pile is 300mm in diameter and the product to use is 260mm Eziyaka pad. The anchor or brace piles are 400mm in diameter and the 370 mm Eziyaka Lightfoot pad is the product to use. For larger piles (400mm or greater), which normally have, longer square cut piles or tana poles, the client chooses. However the 370mm pad gives the contractor a larger surface area to roll or manoeuvre the pole for alignment prior to concrete infill.

How do we get them into the hole/excavation?

Use the free installation kit supplied with each purchase and follow the installation instructions provided.

Where can I buy Eziyaka?

Eziyaka products are available nationwide through selected merchants.

Is there support available?

Call 0800 266172 for Conqra product information or support.

Can Eziyaka Bigfoot be used internally under sewer bridging and point loads?

Yes. It is an alternative to any piling system but has limitations as it is only calculated on its end bearing capacity of the pad, which is 370mm in diameter.

EziYaka Conqra POLYRAFT

Why would I choose a raft floor?

Speed of construction, better R-value and compatibility with all soil types.

Do I need an engineer to design it?

Yes.

Will rodents live within the polystyrene?

No, the polystyrene is chemically treated to prevent this.

Is it warmer than an ordinary floor?

Yes. It has an R-value thermal rating.

Can DIY homeowners install it?

No, you must be a licensed building practitioner.

EziYaka Conqra STUNNA

What is the advantage of Stunna?

It clips the polystyrene pods together in a concrete raft flooring design, forming a mat.

How does Stunna work?

The v-shaped bottom of the spacer aligns and suspends the reinforcement bars in the middle of the canal, allowing improved concrete flow and cover. The weight of the reinforcement suspended reduces the risk of the polystyrene pods bunching or lifting during the pouring process. The result is a more robust floor during the pumping process.

Does the spacer replace structural elements.

Yes, see our product range description.
