Ground Gas Protection
All gas protection systems within the atal uk range are BBA certified and are compliant with:
BR211 (Radon: Guidance on Protective Measures for New Dwellings)
BR212 (Construction of New Buildings on Gas Contaminated Land)
BR414 (Protective Measures for Housing on Gas Contaminated Land)
atal uk are able to aid design, supply and install if required.
Please email us or call 01495 717202 to arrange a meeting to discuss your specific requirements at your convenience.
Radon is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas formed by the decay of uranium contained within all rocks and soils. It is present in all UK homes and in large doses causes damage in living tissues increasing the risk illness. The amount of radon varies in areas throughout the UK. Depending on the level of radon protection required we are able to supply and install a range of membranes and passive venting systems. We also offer independent verification of radon barrier installations. Please give us a call for more information.
CO2 & Methane
Methane and CO2 are both colourless and odourless. Natural sources of methane include coal deposits and marshland, and some manmade sources include landfill, coal mines and decomposition of organic material in made ground. Carbon Dioxide also has natural (generated in chalk areas and limestone by acidic rainwater) and manmade sources (decomposition of waste materials). Protection from both CO2 and Methane requires a more robust membrane than that required for radon protection, we have numberous membranes to meet these demands as well as passive venting systems. Please give us a call for more information.
Hydrocarbons are present on sites previously used for industrial purposes (petrol stations, garages, airports, waste processing units, agricultural facilities). Due to the vast array of hydrocarbon compounds remedial methods need to be assessed on a site-specific basis. Volatile hydrocarbons are potentials sources of vapour and pose risks to the longevity of the structure and the inhabitants. We stock a range of certified membranes to protect against a variety of hydrocarbons. Please contact us for more information.
