FISSURES INSTABILITY CRACKS MOISTURE TRADITIONAL FOUNDATION *WHAT IS RADON Radon is a colourless and extremely volatile gas produced by the decay of uranium U238. Radon gas occurs naturally, and is constantly produced by certain rocks in the Earth’s crust. The main source of Radon gas is the ground: it seeps through the soil and accumulates into rooms and enclosed places. It is very dangerous as it is carcinogenic: its prolonged inhalation is considered the second cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoke; the risk of cancer development is proportional to the exposure to radioactive gas. The...

MONOLITHIC VENTILATED FOUNDATION MONOLITHIC STRUCTURE SINGLE POUR STABILITY MODULO SYSTEM CREATES MONOLITHIC VENTILATED FOUNDATIONS IN A SINGLE POUR Modulo System, the combination of Modulo and Geoblock, makes it possible to pour the foundation and the groundslab in a single operation, creating a monolithic structure that won’t crack. A ventilated and monolithic foundation grants high stability and load-bearing capacity, signicantly reducing the risks of damage in the case of earthquakes. The soil is a heterogeneous blend of solid elements, water and air. Water is the element naturally most subject...

DIFFERENT TYPES OF FOUNDATION › TRADITIONAL FOUNDATION LOAD When traditional foundations are made the slab and the ground beams are poured in two operations. The load is not well distributed over the slab, which leads to: › CRACKS › MOISTURE › RADON GAS breaking point MAX stress Radon gas moisture STEEL STRESS reaction subsidence › TRADITIONAL MONOLITHIC FOUNDATION In a monolithic foundation load is evenly distributed and it remains below the admissible limit. Despite this, the contact between the foundation and the soil causes the rising of: Even when load is well distributed, stress levels of...

TECHNICAL DATA LOAD CHART FOR MODULO 50 x 50 View from above of the model View from below of the model Tension state of the MZZ plate, top view MODULO H3 MODULO H6 MODULO H9 MODULO SYSTEM: MODULO + GEOBLOCK GEOBLOCK: IT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE The formwork for monolithic ventilated foundations MODULO creates a monolithic ventilated foundation. Its shape forms a slab on a matrix of small pillars: this solution provides high structural strenght to the building. The sanitary void protects from moisture and dangerous Radon gas. MODULO is available in different heights (from 3 to 70 cm). MODULO SYSTEM...

HOW TO CREATE A VENTILATED FOUNDATION HOW TO CREATE A VENTILATED MONOLITHIC FOUNDATION 1. Prepare a lean concrete base of thickness as required by the load on the foundation. The foundation reinforcement is placed above this lean concrete base; 2. Prepare the perimeter foundation of the pour; 3. Place the ventilation tubes through the ground beam reinforcement for connection between different sections of the ground slab; 4. Place all pipes and services as per design (plumbing, cables, etc.); 5. Place the Modulo forms, without cutting any of the pieces; 6. Use Geoblock to close any gap between...
