CUPOLEX® is the environmentally friendly and cost effective alternative to RibRaft, Waffle Pod and other Polystyrene concrete foundations. CUPOLEX® is a patented structural dome concrete slab system made from recycled non-toxic Polypropylene. Each dome easily inter-connects to create a self supporting structure acting as permanent form work, as an alternative to RibRaft polystyrene and/or hard fill in your concrete slab. Not only does CUPOLEX® provide an absolute barrier and reduces potential for rising damp with no capillary action possible, but it also is cost effective. The CUPOLEX® concrete slab system can also provide significant reductions in the volume of concrete, reinforcing steel and labour required to put the system down. Go Green and save money. “CUPOLEX® ticks all the boxes”.
