Methane gas is naturally present in the subsurface as organic materials deteriorate in the soil. Methane gas is very common and may be found in many developed areas. High concentrations of methane gas can also be found near landfills or disposal sites, oil/gas wells, or soils contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons. Methane is combustible and explosive in high concentrations.
Methane Barrier Systems are designed to prevent methane gas from finding its way into your living or work space and compromising your health. Methane barriers are installed under slab or below grade walls to prevent gas intrusion.
ECApplications methane barrier installations comply with LADBS standards and we work closely with Deputy Inspectors to certify completed projects. So if you have a new building or remodeling an existing building, let ECApplications show you that ‘Our people and experience make the difference’.
