Radbar Radon 400 Membrane
Our Radbar Radon 400 Membrane goes live from today. BBA certified for preventing the ingress of radon. Building regulations and BRE guidance on radon protection have not changed, so the 300 micron radon membrane is still suitable for use.However if BBA certification is needed the Radon 400 Membrane is for you.
Installation training at Capital Valley Plastics
The first CCS Gas Membrane Installation Training was held at our training facility on the 26th April. The candidates, who are all looking to increase their knowledge and skills when installing gas membranes, undertook a classroom session that included information on ground gases and their possible effects. Verification was then covered, but uniquely, from a “what to expect as an installer from the independent verifier” point of view. All candidates then went through an extended hands on practical session covering all aspects of installation including jointing with tapes and by welding and detailing pipe penetrations and corners. All practical work undertaken by the candidates was then verified, as it would be on site. A pick probe, air lance and dielectric porosity testing machine were all used to demonstrate just how thorough independent verification should be. We were very impressed by the quality of the practical work undertaken by the candidates and look forward to working with them on gas membrane installations in the near future. A big thank you to CCS (Confederation of Construction Specialists) for running the course, and Neil Salvidge of PAG and Paul Colbeck of Geoshield for their excellent training on the installation and verification respectively. If you are interested in attending this course please contact us on email@example.com ; or contact CCS on firstname.lastname@example.org
London redevelopment with Radbar
A former London timber manufacturing factory is being redeveloped into high end apartments with the help of Radbar Flexible Hydrocarbon Membrane. Due to the previous use contaminants were found during the site investigation, Radbar Flexible Hydrocarbon Membrane prevents chemical and vapour ingress into the building, this gives the developers and future residents peace of mind. Technical Manager Mat visited site to give installation guidance, all part of the Radbar service.

Radbar Flexible Hydrocarbon Membrane gets BBA Certificate
We are thrilled to announce that our Radbar Flexible Hydrocarbon Membrane and Radbar Hydrocarbon DPC are the first flexible hydrocarbon barriers to be certified by the BBA. Radbar Flexible Hydrocarbon Membrane protects against Hydrocarbons, VOC’s, methane, carbon dioxide, radon and moisture. It also complies to BS 8485:2015 for use on CS3 and NHBC Amber 2 sites. The membrane can be jointed using double and single sided tapes or by welding, as several installation companies have reported it “welds beautifully”. Radbar Flexi Hydrocarbon membrane is supplied on rolls 1.3m wide and 20m long, the membrane is 1mm thick and extremely flexible, making detailing corners and penetrations easy.
