In the modern building sector, a radon
mitigation system is always more requested, as this kind of gas is very dangerous for our
The radon is a radioactive gas that is naturally present in the subsoil: if we are outdoor its
presence is inoffensive but it becomes dangerous when we are in a closed space without an adequate
For this reason it is important that, especially in the foundation, the ventilation is
ensured, in order to bring out the radon.
Geoplast offers a wide range of products to create ventilated
foundations in many fields: residential, industrial or prefabricated buildings, schools and also in case of
renovation of existing buildings. Modulo, Minimodulo, Multimodulo and New Elevetor are plastic formworks
that can be used to build an efficient radon mitigation system. They are made of polypropylene, a recyclable
material, resistant, light and easy to place. Thanks to their technical characteristics they ensure a good
ventilation, even with a little thickness.
If in the foundation the ventilation is important, it is also
an excellent choice for roofs, as it allows to maintain a high level of hygro-thermic comfort, combined to a
good acoustic isolation: the ideal product for this purpose is Minimodulo that ensures the maximum
ventilation in a little space.
The plastic formworks of Geoplast can be used also to build basement
walls, ramps and ventilated foundations for fridge cells.
For the basements walls the recommended
product is Defender, an element in recycled polypropylene that allows a perfect ventilation
and a water drainage.
Elevetor, thanks to its modularity and variable heights, is the
right product to create access ramps or steps and sloping surfaces.
Ventilated foundations are fundamental in the building of fridge cells: in fact, the low temperature can be transmitted to the
structure and freeze the water contained in the ground, causing warps and cracks on the floor. A ventilated
foundation with Modulo can avoid this situation.
