Design and Custom Manufacturing
Styro Rail offers services for design and custom manufacturing of products for specific design needs. This includes non standard dimensions and special shapes. EPS can be used with a wide variety of materials and shapes, therefore the cutting of EPS in 2D or 3D shapes is a product that is both light and has multi-purpose qualities.
The Styro Rail team of engineers and architects will assist you in determining the optimal shape in EPS that will respond to your needs. A 3D concept, concept drawings, shop drawings as well as prototypes are supplied when the shape required is complex and the assembly detail requires them.
Whether it be for a product designed for one time use, or an assembly of many different parts or for production of many similar parts, the custom made cutting of EPS parts is a economical alternative to the moulding manufacturing

Styro Rail offers a laminating service where EPS is laminated to various construction materials. These construction materials can be rigid, semi-rigid or plastic films that may be laminated using compatible bonding agents: OSB, plywood, aspenite, magna board, cardboard, kraft paper, plastic films, vapour barrier, air barrier, etc. These panels may be delivered on pallets or rolls depending on the laminated material, packaged or not. This finely tuned and state of the art equipment allows for ship lapped panels on 1 or multiples sides.
Packing and Filling
Styro Rail offers filling and packing services using polystyrene beads. The beads can be used for the equipments destined to the mattresses industry, health care sector and recreational settings.
Different densities are offered depending on the quality and durability desired. These polystyrene beads are commonly used in bean bags and rehabilitation pillows applications.
MTQ │ MTO Certificate
Styro Rail can provide letters of conformity for the expanded polystyrene that is part of the road infrastructures for projects managed by the Ministry of transportation of Québec [MTQ] and the ministry of transportation of Ontario [MTO]. The light weight fill blocs are tested by an independent laboratory and an official rapport is provided for each project lot.
Styro Rail recycles 100% of its post production waste material and participates in various post consumer collection programmes where expanded polystyrene number 6 is collected and recycled in our facilities.
Expanded polystyrenes with recycled content
The majority of the products manufactured by Styro Rail contain a certain percentage of recycled material, this depending on the client requirements.
Products containing a very high amount of recycled material are available for specific projects upon request.
Collection of EPS from institutions, companies and municipalities
Styro Rail will further aid businesses and municipalities who desire to participate in the recycling program of number 6 expanded polystyrene by implementing collection points and further implementing the recycling programme in place.
To control the quality and accuracy of our finished products, Styro Rail draws, conceives and provides shop drawings to the client for their approval before production of custom projects.
For large-scale projects or when custom products needs to be installed following a specific sequence or the products have a special shape and size, Styro Rail provides specific installation drawings to facilitate the onsite installation.
The Styro RailTM products can contribute to LEED® credits for Optimizing Energy Performance, Recycled Content, Regional Materials, Low-Emitting Materials, [Adhesives and Sealants], Construction Waste Management and IAQ Management Plan for the Pre-Occupancy Phase.
