CUPOLEX® Plastic Dome Shaped Concrete Forms are stay-in-place forms to create unreinforced or reinforced concrete slabs on grade. Concrete is poured over the modular dome forms to create floating or structural grade supported slabs, partially supported or fully supported slabs on beam, piles or deep foundations. CUPOLEX® slabs use less concrete and reinforcing than a standard slabs with equivalent load bearing capacity. The unique concrete geometry Cupolex creates, forms an under slab void that can be passively or mechanically vented to remove moisture and soil gases, protecting buildings against the ingress of harmful soil gasses.
CUPOLEX® Patented Forms have a unique connecting feature. Only, CUPOLEX® forms additional built-in plastic at all pressure point locations and a central reinforced cone support of height equal to the element positioned in correspondence of the central region, guarantees the absorption of vibrations which occurs during the finishing of the CUPOLEX® aerated concrete floor slab.
CUPOLEX® provides Excellent Flexibility in Working with new construction or remodeled building layouts. The main characteristics of the forming system are speed and simplicity; the following points should be adhered to:
Made from 100% recycled Polypropylene (PP) plastic, the CUPOLEX® forms provide the maximum performance and guarantees superior characteristics of stability and resistance in its structure to allow operations that are completed directly above the plastic CUPOLEX® elements before and during the placement of the concrete. CUPOLEX® Forms are molded in a variety of depths to deal with different levels of Vapor emission and for different depths of fill requirements.
