Solco Building Products are delighted to announce the award of BBA Agrément Certificate Number 18/5579 for both Solsheet Self-Adhesive Membrane (SAM) and Solsheet Gas Resistant Self-Adhesive Membrane (GR SAM). 

Solco’s Solsheet Self-Adhesive Membranes are the latest products in its expanding range to be awarded this significant construction industry accreditation. 

Our BBA certificate provides 3rd party accreditation for the use of our Solco gas membranes as Damp Proof and Waterproof membranes, as well as or Gas Resistant membrane as a ‘Gas-resistant membrane’ – protecting buildings against the ingress of radon, methane and carbon dioxide.

Solsheet Self-Adhesive Membranes are 1.5mm thick, preformed waterproofing systems, which conform to the requirements of BS 8102. The membranes are made up of a bitumen compound, laminated on to a cross-laminated HDPE film, for use in basements, ground floors, reservoirs, and retaining walls. Solsheet GR SAM’S gas proofing characteristics are achieved via a reinforcing 50-micra aluminium film, which is bonded to the HDPE. 

Solco’s Solsheet Self-Adhesive Membranes are able to provide a BBA certificate for materials fully compliant with current industry requirements, with Solsheet GR SAM meeting the requirements of BS8485:2015, suitable for use as a Methane, Carbon Dioxide and Radon Ground Gas Barrier, and suitable for use for NHBC Green, Amber 1, and Amber 2 site classifications.
