Welcome to Frostwick PermaShield
“Frostwick PermaShield is the most effective long-term solution to frost heave damage.”
Innovative, cost-effective and proven, Frostwick PermaShield is a patented product that is the most effective solution to frost heave damage on the market today.
The use of insulating layers to reduce frost heave damage is a technique that has been used for many years. The Frostwick application uses this proven approach, and adds geosynthetic layers to the top and bottom, creating a stronger, longer lasting, more comprehensive solution to frost heave damage. This continuous barrier is very sturdy, while the geosynthetic fabric prevents moisture migration and “wicks” water away toward the edge of the installation.
Because of its strength and insulating properties, a Frostwick insulation does not require a repair to go as deep as conventionally needed, and does not require sand to be trucked in and laid above and below the insulation. For these reasons, a Frostwick installation is usually cheaper than a conventional insulation installation. Additionally, all known Frostwick installations are still functioning perfectly, reducing long-term maintenance costs substantially.
The Frostwick product has been proven in many applications over 20+ years, and has not failed. Ever. It has been subject to testing by the Alberta Research Council to corroborate its increased strength, and has obtained “proven product” status within the Government of Alberta’s Ministry of Transportation.
