Structural under-slab insulation and ventilation panel

Radon Guard® is a patented, structural under-slab insulation and ventilation panel system that provides for radon gas removal, insulation, and a capillary break. Radon Guard is a sub-slab depressurization panel that provides radon gas movement between the ground and the soil-gas-retarder to a vent pipe.

What is Radon?

Radon is a gaseous radioactive element. It is an extremely toxic, colorless gas derived from the radioactive decay of radium.

How does Radon enter your building?

It comes from the natural decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your building through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Your building traps radon inside where it can build up. Any building may have a radon problem. Radon Guard together with a soil-gas-retarder will ensure your new building is safe and free from harmful levels of radiation.

How does Radon Guard work?

The interconnected channels on the underside of the Radon Guard panel depressurize the sub-slab space to direct radon gases to the vent pipe, which would then be connected to a radon gas fan.
