In the UK and Northern Ireland Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas which can accumulate inside buildings, including your home, which Public Health England has identified as the UK's second-highest cause of lung cancer. The risk varies depending on where you live, the local underlying rocks and regional geology.
Using our Radtrak detectors enables you to obtain a reliable assessment of the radon levels in your home. The detectors are specifically designed to measure the yearly average radon level that has been adjusted for the season, which takes into account closed or open windows. Radtrak is the most frequently used radon detector system in the UK.Radon measurements in UK homes are normally carried out with two Radtrak detectors (one in the master bedroom and one in the living room), over three months, to average out short-term radon fluctuations detectors should normally be purchased in pairs (priced individually) however be certain to order an additional Radtrak detector for any rooms where you spend a lot of time e.g. in the children's bedrooms. 3 Months is the recommended test duration though shorter time frames such as 7 days are possible using our Rapidos testers available here, ideal for when moving into new properties. Radtrak is an alpha track detector which can be used for long term measurement over 2-6 months and as an occupational radon dosimetry monitoring service. The exceptionally large range of this detector allows measurement of radon levels from as low as 15 Bq/m3 to as high as 25,000 Bq/m3 over a 3 month period. The detector consists of a film element located within a pod made from a special antistatic plastic which allows radon gas to enter by diffusion. An analysis is performed using a state-of-the-art image scanner.
Occupational. Included with the detectors: Clear radon measurement instructions which show where the detectors should be located. Login details so that you can specify a start and stop time for your radon measurement on our website, where you are then also able to study the analysis results.
Analysis and measurement report from our accredited laboratory measurement which complies with UK standards. If the measurement has been performed correctly as instructed, an approved average annual value for long-term measurement of radon content.
