WITH GEOPLASt SOLUTION GREEN CONSTRUCTION IS ALREADY ACHIEVABLE
A Geoplast environmentally friendly building begins from the foundations: MODULO, GEOBLOCK, MULTIMODULO, MINIMODULO and ELEVETOR allow the realization of ventilated monolithic foundations to eliminate rising damp and Radon gas, which naturally tend to rise from the ground and concentrate especially on the lower floors of the buildings.
These two elements are both harmful, and the second can be even deadly if inhaled for long periods. A monolithic foundations guarantees structural strength eliminating the problem of cracks. DEFENDER completely insulates the foundation walls to create a dry and healthy environment.
All walls and columns in concrete can be built with GEOTUB, GEOTUB PANEL and GEOPANEL systems, while slab are realized using GEOSKY (for advanced dismantling), SKYRAIL (for one-way ribbed slabs), SKYDOME (for leightweight waffle slabs) plastic formworks, thus reducing the waste of wood in the construction industry, which is intensifying deforestation. GEOPANEL ART is the ideal system for the creation of textured reinforced concrete walls.
As for the roof, DRAINROOF allows to realize a roof garden, thus returning to the environment the green that has been removed and at the same time getting a warmer attic in winter and a cooler one in summer. However, living a healthy life does not mean to stay inside, but enjoy accessible green areas. Realizing drivable lawns and green parkings with SALVAVERDE, GEOFLOR and RUNFLOOR GREEN it will be possible to walk and park freely on a green area which, otherwise, would have been a delicate and untouchable flowerbed or worse, a flast expanse of black asphalt. What about vertical green? WALL-Y, our grid in HDPE, allows the creation of beautiful green walls.
To accumulate and store rainwater underground storage and drainage tanks can be realized with DRENING and ELEVETOR TANK, which eliminate stagnat sources of foul smells and mosquitos. For entertainment and free time there are GRIPPER, the multi-sport performance flooring, and PLASTONELLA, the excellent draining tile for healthy relax. Finally, BIOMODULO is the perfect product for the realization of air diffusion systems for compostage and deodorization plants.
