Radon Gas Barriers
Radon is a radioactive ground gas found in all buildings in the UK, but in varying levels. Juta supply durable Radon barrier membranes to protect against its harmful effects, along with expert advice.
The dangers of radon
Radon is a colourless, odourless, radioactive gas that comes from rocks and soil. Radon levels are higher inside buildings compared to outside, and exposure to the gas over an extended period of time can be harmful, with it believed that 1000 deaths a year in the UK can be attributed to lung cancer caused by radon. In many cases, radon levels aren’t an issue, but Building Regulations require all new buildings and extensions/conversions to undergo protective measures to ensure they are adequately shielded from radon.
Straightforward and effective gas protection
At Juta, we supply effective, high-quality radon gas barriers to ensure properties are protected from high levels of the harmful gas. Radon gas barriers are protective membranes made from durable polyethylene that are applied in the foundation stage of construction. Our barrier membranes are an effective and easy-to-install way to guard against harmful levels of radon.
