NHBC recently announced the launch of their 2019 Standards, which came into effect on 1st January 2019.
Glidevale has introduced a re-engineered version of its gas protection membrane, the Protect GDB10 Plus. Achieved by increasing the robustness of the material, the membrane’s puncture resistance has been boosted by more than 30%, ensuring less risk of tearing and ripping on site. Providing a continuous, impermeable protective barrier against ground gases including methane, radon, carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons, the membrane is suitable for Amber 1 and 2 applications as defined by NHBC. The product is compliant with BS 8485:2015 and has also been independently assessed and certified by BM TRADA.
