Solco’s Solshield Ultra and Reinforced Gas Membranes are the latest products in its expanding range to be awarded this significant construction

Our BBA certificate provides 3rd party accreditation for the use of our Solco
gas membranes as a ‘Ground Gas Geomembrane’ to protect the building
against moisture, radon, methane and carbon dioxide from the ground.

Solshield Ultra Gas Membrane is a multi-layer low density polyethylene gas barrier and damp-proof membrane reinforced with a polypropylene grid with an integral aluminium foil, for use in concrete ground floors, above and below slab not subject to hydrostatic pressure, to protect the building against moisture, radon, methane and carbon dioxide from the ground.

Whereas, Solshield Reinforced Gas Membrane is a multi-layer low density reinforced polyethylene membrane, reinforced with a polypropylene reinforcing grid. Solshield Reinforced Gas Membrane is designed to be suitable for use in areas with carbon dioxide, radon, low levels of methane and an air and moisture protection system.
