Do we deliver?
Deliveries are possible, we can either do in house deliveries (limited quantities) or we can make use of a courier who is very affordable. Note that due to low rates delivery time can be delayed, customers are advised to make alternative arrangements if it is urgent or time sensitive projects.
How big are the bags?
250 liter bag is 0.25 m3, it is bigger than a standard black refuge bag. Small bead bags can weigh between 3.5-4.5 kg and large bead bags 3-4 kg, note that these bags are charged per volume and not per weight.
Bulk bags are 1000 liter bags (1m3) and is a closed bag with a filling and discharge chute that makes managing bulk filling easier. Bags are weighed after filling and we charge according to material weight (bag weight deducted). A bag deposit is required which is refundable upon returning the bag. Empty bags can be exchanged for full bags on reoccurring orders for bulk customers.
How much do I need?
We can estimate your requirements but it is always best to consult with the manufacturer or with the engineer on what the requirements are. We supply the material only and refrain from advising on sensitive specifications.
What size bead must I use?
Our company supplies small and large beads, it really depends on what you prefer. Small beads are for any application example filling, soil mixer, light weight concrete, insulation etc. Large beads are great for insulation and any application where you need to displace more volume with less material (gives a different feel than small beads). We can offer samples of both upon prior arrangement.
What is the difference between recycled (regrind) and virgin beads?
Virgin beads are perfect round beads used to make polystyrene and is more expensive, regrind beads are the end product that has been grinded down to beads which is more affordable. Both looks different but serves the same purpose, samples are also supplied on virgin beads.
Bulk bags are charged per kg:

Production is aimed at keeping a decent amount of stock available at all times however we depend on other industries to keep our stock levels high. In some cases (seasons) stock is difficult to acquire and levels will fluctuate. For large orders it is best to place them in advance, we will then produce according to your requirement (if stock levels are low).
Bags are generally 1 m3 bags, easy to load and easy to store. We can assist with smaller bulk loads however if bulk delivery is required a transporter can be contracted or customers are welcome to collect at our production facility.
