Nilex’s Soil Gas Barrier Systems use geomembranes to inhibit the seepage of gases, such as radon and methane from one area to another. These systems can be installed under or around concrete foundations and floors to prevent the build-up of dangerous gases in building structures, eliminating potential indoor air quality health risks associated with subsurface contaminant vapor intrusion. Any gas that is generated under the building is transported through the system and then vented safely to the outside.
Nilex offers geomembrane liner installation, design assistance, fabrication and construction services for containment applications.
Organic and inorganic materials are present in all soils. These materials can produce gases or vapors. Some of these vapors may include water (H2O), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), methane, radon, hydrogen sulfide (H2S), mercury and others. These vapors can rise...
