Cupolex Dome floating foundations
Interlocking structural dome concrete slab system

As oppose to traditional concrete foundations, Cupolex is a eco-friendly and cost effective alternative.

Cupolex is made from recycled non-toxic polypropylene, and is a patended structural dome concrete slab system. The domes easily inter-connect, which creates a self supporting structure - this acts as permanent form work (an alternative to the RibRaft polystyrene and other hard fill in your concrete slabs).

As well as providing an absolute barrier, Cupolex reduces the potential for rising damp with no capillary action possible, while remaining cost effective.

Labour is also reduced from Cupolex concrete foundations, as well as significant reductions in the volume of concrete needed.

The team at Reliable Foundations can install underfloor heating systems and the RibRaft concrete foundation system.

What are the advantages of the Cupolex Dome foundations system?

Efficient, simple installation
The Cupolex system arrives on site, and is ready to be installed immediately. It is quick and simple to be installed with basic hand tools.

Environmentally friendly
This floating concrete foundation is considered to be extremely eco-friendly, as there is minimal concrete wastage. Because the delivery trucks are lighter, and less deliveries need to be made, the is reduced construction traffic damage.

Being made out of 100% non-toxic recyclable means that this system can contribute towards Green or Leed certified building.

Easily adapdable, modular system
With the ability to be adapted to site variations, the Cupolex domes ca be fitted together to form the foundations of anything from a granny flat, through to a family home or commercial property.

High level of insulation for a warmer home
The concrete slab foundation system (when used with Brick Veneer construction) can achieve a R value of between R=2.12 and R=2.57 depending on the floor area /perimeter ratio.

Install underfloor heating with your Cupolex Dome foundation system

The Cupolex Dome foundation system is perfect for easily integrating underfloor heating into your home, so that you and your family are warm through the colder seasons.
