HomeFix realise the importance of you choosing the correct system for your contract as each projects (SI) site investigation report will differ as will the risk to life expressed in the GSV / CS rating for the specific type of building which is to be constructed. It is essential the chosen systems (ventilation, membrane and components) meet the minimum performance criteria as laid down in the documents which relate to said risk (as provided by the architect & geotechnical engineer) . HomeFix only supply systems that comply with the current guidelines:
- Building Research Establishment Report 211 – Radon

- British Standards BS 8485:2015 – Methane, Carbon Dioxide & VOC’s (Table 7)
