Humans have always felt the need to live in comfortable houses, experimenting. since the beginning, construction methods to separate the buildings from the ground: Neolithic pile dwellings answered this precise need. Ancient Romans built elevated floorings to improve air circulation under their houses, eliminating rising damp and at the same time heating the rooms of the upper floors. Today, ventilated foundations are still the best solution to eliminate Radon Gas, a carcinogenic and very harmful gas which is naturally present in the subsoil. Geoplast has improved these ancient methods in order...

SINGLE USE FORMWORK FOR: the creation of ventilated foundations. MODULO is a single use formwork that eliminates rising damp and RADON GAS, that naturally exists in the soil in most parts of the world. MODULO allows the construction of a reinforced concrete structure provided with a slab and a series of pillars placed at a fixed distance. Such a structure permits a uniform stress distribution all over the surface, thus producing an excellent static and dynamic load-bearing capacity. VENTILATED CRAWL SPACE ■ LIGHTENING OF SLABS ■ TECHNICAL VOID SPACE FILLING OF SLABS AND FOUNDATIONS ■ ACOUSTIC...

Modular and single use formwork system for ventilated crawl spaces for the creation of a physical barrier between the ground and the building stackable Unmatched logistical advantages when transporting and storing. At a height of 50 cm, conventional filling requires 50 trucks of filling in comparison to only 1 truck of MODULO. light By far it is the lightest filling solution; the total weight of the cross section is approximately equal to the thickness of the upper slab high load bearing Countless pillars, arches and domes create the highest load bearing structure When compared with traditional...

GEOBLOCK The combination of MODULO and GEOBLOCK allows the creation of a monolithic slab without the risk of cracks or breakage. The extension is an adjustable product, adaptable to any worksite situation and available for every MODULO height.  A STRUCTURAL CONTINUITY single pour of crawl space and foundation beams B SAFETY IN THE WORKSITE It is possible to walk over the formwork, especially along the perimeter, as there is always a complete element C ELIMINATION OF THE DOUBLE FORMWORK thanks to GEOBLOCK the beams does not need to be formed internally D COMPENSATION ADJUSTABILITY the depth of...

SINGLE CONCRETE POUR tive advantages thanks to GEOBLOCK, which works as a side cap of the formwork. Moreover, the single pour produces a higher resistance for the fragile coupling point between the beam and the slab. The possibility to pour at the same time the crawl space slab and the foundation beams avoids the necessity of installing, pouring and dismantling the formwork for the foundation beams: the construction operations will be reduced to a single pour, with various cost-effec- Lean concrete MODULO formwork Wire Mesh Concrete slab www.geoplast.it

The origin of Radon in our houses WHAT IS IT? RADON is an odourless and colourless radioactive gas that can be found in variable quantities in the Earth’s crust. The main source of environmental emission of this gas is the soil itself. Radon tends to accumulate in closed, unventilated rooms of buildings, especially in ground floors. In these areas, RADON can reach high concentration levels, hus could create very serious health hazards. This problem could be easily prevented if considered at the planning stage of the building.

YOUR HEALTH W.H.O. World Health Organization RADON is the second cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking. The World Health Organization supports this statement and classifies RADON GAS as one of the most carcinogenic and harmful substances for humans. DAMP What are the consequences? STATIC DAMAGES: the salts that can be found in the building material and in the soil melt down in the water. They rise up to the upper layer of the wall and increase their volume up to 12 times. The plaster will start to come off and the entire structure will deteriorate AESTHETICAL DAMAGES: damp spots or marks,...

It is possible to defend ourselves against RADON GAS and rising damp that are all caused due to direct contact with the ground; VENTILATED FOUNDATION. This innovative yet simple solution guarantees uniform health. GEOPLAST suggests a specific system for the creation of a ventilated crawl space: MODULO SYSTEM. and natural air circulation between the ground level and the ground floor. A properly ventilated crawl space avoids contact of the building with the ground, creates an "EMPTY SPACE" with many benefits to the building's The history Even the ancient Romans understood that the direct contact...

HOW IS IT CREATED? In order to improve the ventilation of the foundation created with MODULO, it would be useful to take advantage of the CHIMNEY EFFECT. For a proper ventilation, the system should be oriented from North to South or where not possible, from East to West. The greater the difference in height, the greater the air draught. The inlet pipes must be placed with: - INLET: colder side (NORTH or EAST) and close to the ground level (~50 cm) - OUTLET: warmer side (SOUTH or WEST) and in an higher position (usually at the height of the interfloor, if possible). NORTH (colder side) SOUTH (warmer...

Thickness of the slab reduced MODULO is also a lightening system that can offer many benefits. First, it is particularly useful in multi-storey buildings as the total structure becomes lighter with MODULO system. This lightness reduces the thickness of the slab, as well as the total load of the structure burdening on pillars and foundations. Sec- ond, there are savings both in terms of time, labour and material costs, because the amount of concrete and steel used is highly reduced. Finally, thanks to the creation of a void space in multi-storey buildings, MODULO ensures noise reduction, heat insulation...
