Radon DPC – Gas Resistant Damp Proof Course
Radbar Radon DPC provides outstanding resistance to radon gas and water vapour. It is designed for use in both solid and cavity walls, acting as a highly effective barrier from harmful ground gases. It is robust with high puncture and tear resistance.
Permagard provide this DPC as 100mm x 20 metre rolls with the aim to minimise waste.
Uses of Radon DPC
The Radbar Radon DPC can be used in walls as a horizontal, vertical or stepped gas resistant DPC.
It is designed for both solid and cavity walls (when used with a cavity tray system) made from:
Installation of Radon DPC
The radon DPC is installed in the same as a normal DPC. For external walls, the gas DPC should be placed 150mm above the ground floor. It should be applied to a fresh bed of mortar, without any protrusions.
Make sure the gas-resistant DPC is linked to the floor DPM membranes or gas membrane. It’s vitally important that you have an air-tight seal between the DPC and the membrane so use Radbar double-sided gas tape. This damp proof course needs to installed in accordance to building regulations: BS 8215:1991, BS 8000, and BS 5628.
Benefits of Radbar Radon DPC
This high performance gas resistant DPC is an engineered tri-polymer, developed to give excellent mechanical properties. It provides an extremely effective barrier against both water and gases for the lifetime of the building.
The DPC benefits from a prominent key, which means you get superior mortar adhesion. This is essential when being used in three + storey applications.
Radbar High Performance DPC is compliant with building regulations - BS EN 14909:2012 – and carries BBA Certification. This provides complete confidence in the product, knowing that it has been manufactured to the highest standard.
