Temporary Foundations

Jackpad Foundation to Hire (Alternative to Concrete Foundation)

Recycled, Re-usable & Recyclable Foundation Pads

Robust and reliable foundations for your portable building 

Quick, simple, adjustable and affordable, our recycled plastic Jackpad® foundation pads are the perfect system for Algeco relocatable buildings. They can support modular buildings up to three storeys high and a single foundation position can support up to 48kn, providing there is suitable ground-bearing capacity. 

Affordable, portable foundations 

Portable, re-usable pads are much more cost-effective than traditional foundations. The system is versatile too, working on a multitude of surfaces, including:

  •   Tarmac
  •   Concrete
  •   Grass
  •   Shingle
  •   All-weather pitches
  •   Ploughed fields 

With no ground preparation needed, the key factor is the bearing capacity of the ground. Once the job’s done and the portable buildings and Jackpad foundations are removed, no remedial work is usually needed. This means that playgrounds, car parks and other locations can return to normal use quickly.


Versatile and sustainable 

The system is made from 100% recycled and recyclable materials and is a proven sustainable alternative to concrete. Rapid deployment reduces time on site and can be installed and calibrated quickly in all weathers. Each pad is height-adjustable to overcome excessive falls in levels and is both accredited by Local Building Authority Control and tested at a UCAS-approved testing facility.
