How To Protect Buildings From Ground Gas
Gas protection measures are used to interrupt possible gas migration pathways, essentially stopping toxic, asphyxiating, flammable and potentially explosive ground gases entering a building. One of the most widely used options for protecting a building is gas membrane protection.
Gas membranes are typically plastic sheets that prevent ground gases from passing through them. Many gas membranes also act as a damp course membrane which protects buildings from ground gases and moisture. These ground gas membrane protection systems are usually installed during construction as part of the foundation design.
It is absolutely essential that gas membranes are installed correctly and they meet all applicable building standards and regulations.
