CUPOLEX are disposable formworks to create aerated concrete floors with unreinforced or reinforced concrete slabs on grade and other concrete structures. Concrete is poured over the modular dome forms to create floating or structural slabs on grade. The unique concrete geometry Cupolex creates, forms an under-slab void that can be vented to remove moisture and soil gases or provide solutions for various sustainable construction applications – uses less concrete and reinforcing than a standard slab with equivalent load bearing capacity. The load is transferred to the ground thanks to the arch-column geometry while the void underneath can be used for many different applications. Aerated raised concrete floors such as CUPOLEX can be used as void filling to decrease the structure weight and to rise the slab height.
Our patented technology has unique connecting features. In fact only CUPOLEX concrete forms present additional built-in plastic at all pressure point locations and a central reinforced cone support of equal height to the element positioned in correspondence of the central region. All these features guarantee the absorption of vibrations which occur during the finishing of the aerated concrete floor slab.

In case of higher loads please contact our technical office.
Values in the following table shows the maximum uniformely distributed loads accepted and the reinforcement as a function of the slab thickness, keeping in consideration a soil Kw = 0.02 N/mm3 , 10cm of concrete underneath, and slab concrete on top of class C25/30.
