Cubo is our Alpha and Omega, the single or modular planter with height-adjustable base, the result of careful stylistic and technological research balancing functionality and beauty. With its linear simplicity, it decorates and characterises your outdoor environment, making it unique and unrepeatable. Its structure is devoid of intermediate walls in order to allow free and natural diffusion of roots. Finally, a wide range of accessories and optional extras allows for customised designs in terms of shape, size and performance.
Joints and angles
Our attention to detail is expressed through a technical and stylistic versatility of precision, with a proposal of four different solutions of joints and angles with different expressive value.
There are two inspection systems available for accessing the drain for cleaning purposes, which allow to avoid dismantling the planter. The first is a removable magnetic front panel that allows access to the drain from underneath the bottom of the planter. The second is an inspection chimney inserted inside the planter which, by means of a cover, allows access to the drain from above.
Technology and functionality
The Cubo modular planter has a steel base that is height-adjustable, both to suit the type of plant (short-root or long-root) and the weight bearing capacity of the terrace slab. The greatest weight of a planter is not rapresented by the material it is made of, but by the weight of the water-saturated soil.
Four Enkadrain panels are inserted in the inner walls of the Cubo, which thermally insulate the soil (with a strong reduction in the thermal transmittance of the walls in summer), providing ventilation for the roots, but also for the lower layers of the planter. A watertight shaped PVC bag is placed on the steel bottom, which prevents contact between the walls, soil, humidity and fertiliser and ensures a long lifespan of the planter, as well as overheating of the bottom.
Water reserve with controlled drainage
The second PVC bottom is equipped with an overflow drain with water retention function. When watering, the water flows through the pipe, arrives directly at the bottom and does not escape unless it reaches the overflow level. Clay and soil are given time to absorb it by capillarity and transfer it to the upper layers, ensuring a uniform moisture level over time. The drain can be cut or lengthened to increase the water reserve, and has a root inhibitor filter that prevents the water outlet hole from becoming blocked.
The drain can be connected to a hose holder. In this way, excess water can be channelled and conveyed to the nearest terrace drain, without spraying and soiling the floor.
