Parapet

The perfect synthesis of aesthetics and safety, Corrimano is a project that is made to measure for the customer. As well as being a modular planter with aesthetic and functional features, Corrimano can be used as a reliable railing, thanks to brackets supplied by Modularte. The steel of the handrail can be customised with the same finishes as the planters to which it is attached.

Characteristics and fixing

A distinctive element of Modularte is the absence of welding, in fact the products are obtained through folds, as for the integrated railing, in the upper part of the planter Corrimano. The railing can be mounted on the internal or external side depending on the requirements of the project, between one crossbar and the other the measurement does not exceed 10 cm. It is possible to mount the integrated railing on both the inner and outer side of the planter. Slotted plates allow the planter to be fixed to the ground on screeded floors, but also on floating floors; the plates can be positioned anywhere on the planter.

River inspections

Two inspection systems are available for accessing the drain for cleaning purposes, which 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. The counter-wall system is the ideal solution if the planters are more than one hundred centimetres high.

Types of parapet

Fixing a railing at the top of the planter as a handrail. Railing with attachment of a glass pane using the Cristal system. It remains possible to mount the railing on both the inside and outside of the planter. Simple planter without any type of handrail. Simple planter with overlapping wall covering.

Technology and functionality

Adjustable bottom

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 the material it is made of, but the weight of the water-saturated soil.

Thermal transmittance

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.

Ducted drain

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.
