Cupolex Soil Cells

Overview

CUPOLEX RIALTO is a forming system for providing an easy, efficient and fast solution for constructing a pavement with heights from 300mm (12 inches) to 2500mm (100 inches). This cutting edge forming system comprises of CUPOLEX domes, pipes, bases and a patented bracing system that quickly interlock and connect to each other composing a self-bearing structure ready for the placement planting soil and furthermore the concrete pavement. The elevated CUPOLEX pavement supported by the matrix of columns formed by the Rialto tubes allows the system to support high load-bearing capacities. The elevated CUPOLEX RIALTO structure and the void created below the slab can be used to contain quality and unlimited soil-volumes, creating structurally beneficent and strong structure systems that are conducive to root growth while supporting any pavement design.

Applications

  • Parking Lots
  • Streetscapes
  • Roadways
  • Footpaths
  • Plazas & Medians

  • Green Roofs
  • Break-Out Zones.
  • Medians
  • Shopping Centers

Features

  • Enables trees to accept, store and transmit water, nutrients and energy
  • Provides room in which roots can propagate. Rialto creates space below the pavements which is required for good soil life and the necessary biochemical exchanges to promote tree growth
  • Provides savings in time and materials compared to other tree and stormwater management systems. Flexible for any dimension on plan or depth and can be easily installed around new or existing underground utilities and pavement penetrations.
  • Proven track record
  • Allows for root breakout from the soil cells into surrounding soils
  • Provides a complete opened void allowing for easy flow of water into and out of the Soil
  • Time tested technology with over 500 million sq.ft installed
  • Cost effective-up to 50% cost saving compared to convention plastic shoring systems for creating soil cells
  • Easy design and for application in new projects for restoration
  • Simple to install
  • Concrete design exceeds HS-20 loading
  • Great adaptability
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Made from 100% recycled plastic
  • manufactured to ISO 9000:2002 high quality standards
