What is CUPOLEX®
CUPOLEX® is the trade name for a sacrificial void forming system which utilises Recycled Plastic Interlocking Domes to create concrete foundations.
The CUPOLEX® system utilises intelligent design to create concrete foundations which have exceptional strength, yet use less concrete, less steel and less labour.
The savings in concrete, steel and labour aside, the air space beneath the foundation has a multitude of uses which sets the CUPOLEX® foundation system apart.
CUPOLEX® products were designed by Valerio Pontarolo of Pontarolo Engineering in Italy in the early 90's and they now distribute to the concrete foundation industry in Italy, England, Germany, Spain, France, Portugal, Greece, Austria, Poland, New Zealand, Russia, Australia and Africa.
CUPOLEX® concrete slabs or foundations were originally designed to mitigate toxic gas emanating from the earth such as Radon and Methane.
CUPOLEX® also provides a cost effective solution for issues such as rising damp, soils with high alkalinity and or salt. The ability for the air space beneath your foundation to be vented outside of the building envelope has many applications.
There are over 150 million square metres of Cupolex concrete foundations installled around the world to date with no reported failures.

Cost effective greener and sustainable concrete flooring system
  • CUPOLEX® domes are made of recycled polypropylene, they easily inter-connect to create a self-supporting structure acting as a strong form work
  • CUPOLEX® is available in various sizes, it can replace costly engineered fill on some sites and significantly reduce cost.
  • Quick and simple installation of CUPOLEX® can save you time and money. 2 men can put down 150-200m2 per hour
  • CUPOLEX® can provide significant reduction in the volume of concrete and reinforcing steel.
  • Patented dome shaped forms of CUPOLEX® introduce arches into concrete slabs and make it stronger and reduces slab curling and shrinkage cracks.
  • CUPOLEX® domes are stackable and compact. Traditional EPS systems are bulky, light and nasty to the environment.
  • Unlike CUPOLEX® domes, the EPS equivalents can be very and produce waste.
  • CUPOLEX® provides an absolute barrier and reduces potential for rising damp and moisture which is associated with adverse health effects. Most suitable for projects like schools and retirement homes
  • Reduce Carbon Footprint. This load for 20 home sites will save around 7000kgs of CO2 being emitted from diesel fuel into the atmosphere compared to transporting EPS products
  • High performance and safety is the primary goal of CUPOLEX® systems. It allows men to work on top of the elements with various working loads.
