Radon is a noxious radioactive gas. It is colourless, odourless and tasteless. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer. It is heavier than air and accumulates in basements. Eco Insulation® can assist you with building or renovating a radon gas-proof basement using Closed Cell polyurethane spray foam.
One of our tested and approved SPF systems installed by our CUFCA Certified Installers can be installed in a single application process. Once installed the SPF forms a single monolithic sheet upon which construction crews can walk and use wheelbarrows without any damage to the underlying radon and vapour barrier spray foam. Far exceeding the performance of mechanically sealed sheet or tile alternatives.
Radon can infiltrate in several places: cracks in the floor slab or foundation walls, the joint between the floor slab and foundation wall, openings in the floor slab or sumps.
