Delta Membranes has announced the introduction of a new MemTech Ground Gas Protection Systems brochure, offering all the facts, technical information and inspiration you need in one place.
The MemTech range provides a variation of gas protection products and ancillaries to protect buildings from ground gases such as Radon, Methane Carbone Dioxide, and VOC’s.
Some below ground construction projects require protection from both water ingress and gas contamination. The MemTech range makes it possible to produce a waterproofing design which incorporates both a waterproof and gas proof protection system. Both BS8102:2009 and BS8485:20015 are intertwined.
The object of structural waterproofing is to protect a structure for its lifetime from water ingress. The object of ground gas protection is to prevent a build-up of gasses against a structure.
A Waterproofing Design Specialist will be able to interpret the requirements of BS8102:2009 and BS8485:2015 to produce a waterproofing design which incorporates both a waterproof and gas proof protection system.
Ground gases can be very difficult to detect, highly flammable and even cause cancer, making gas protection vital. If a site has been identified with a gas or hydrocarbon contamination it will have been given a Characteristic Situation Score. The Characteristic Situation Score is defined according to how severe the gas flow from the ground is. All sites which have been characterised with a gas situation score will require a gas protection system and were identified a waterproof protection barrier.
Delta Membrane Systems Limited offer CSSW training and examinations at their fully functional training facilities in Epping Essex, hosted by the PCA. All of Delta’s Technical Team are CSSW qualified surveyors and registered to the “Waterproofing Design Register”. Our Technical Team would be delighted to help with your waterproofing designs/ground gas protection projects.
