A Foamrox emergency exit installed in a tunnel on the new E18
The emergency exit has been installed in the Torsbuåsen tunnel in Arendal. Installation took less than four hours.
It can make future tunnel protection faster, more reasonable and much simpler.
With support from researchers, the company has developed a material from recycled glass, which is fire resistant and waterproof – and weights barely a tenth of the weight of concrete.
It is a pleasure to see the outlines of an industrial company with great opportunities for success, both nationally and internationally.
Now the family business has taken a new strategic choice in connection with the road ahead and employed a CEO.
Recycled glass may replace concrete
Parliamentary Candidate Åshild Bruun-Gundersen from the Progress Party and State Secretary Brage Baklien get acquainted with the difference between concrete and Foamrox.
Foamrox reduces the greenhouse gas emissions
A Master Thesis at NTNU in Trondheim (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering) concludes that the Foamrox technology clearly gives the lowest greenhouse gas emissions in water-proofing and frost protection of road and railway tunnels.
All in all, Foamrox-technology results in large cost savings in the investment, operation and maintenance of tunnels.
It provides significant benefits in handling – a Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) promotion measure.
Foamrox will have two posts at Arendalsuka.
Within the framework of NHO (Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise) and Klimapartnere (Climate Partners, Norway’s largest private-public partnership network focusing on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and developing a green economy).
Helgesen from Glasopor to Foamrox
Kjell Håkon Helgesen, who has been employed as CEO of Glasopor and Sirkel (previously Norsk Glassgjenvinning) for the past seven years is now in place as CEO of Foamrox.
New materials can revolutionise the way in which we build tunnels.
If a car drives into a tunnel wall, the material in the tunnels should also handle such impacts without the consequential damage of the accident becoming too great.

The main component of the material is recycled glass.
This quartet stands behind a product which the initial customer refers to as “a possible quantum leap” in the construction industry.
A greener badger in the tunnel.
A new material can make tunnel projects cheaper, safer and more environmentally friendly.
It has been hard work for several years, but now I hope it has reached a solution.
TPD can be at the forefront of large-scale production of a brand new product type for fire safety in tunnels.
Easier installation and longer life.
The new material combination called Foamrox is now used in cabinet frames for emergency cabinets in Norwegian tunnels.
Consists of approx. 95 % recycled glass
The weight is about 7 % of a similar construction in concrete.
The first contract has already been landed
