IntroductionWhen installed around the perimeter of a building at ground floor level the requirements of the Robust Details can be satisfied with use of the Type GBFICS. Manufactured from profiled semirigid damp course, the Type GBFICS provides the horizontal dpc requirement to both inner and outer skins of the cavity wall. At the same time the cavity is also capped, creating an integral barrier to guard against radon or methane gas rising upwardly via the cavity and permeating the building envelope. To maintain gastight integrity, the inboard section extends sufficiently to link with a gas-grade slab membrane. The downward projecting section of the Type GBFICS protects the membrane from damage where it rises against the inside leaf.
To insulate, provide horizontal dpc, cavitray protection plus radon and methane cavity barrier integrity at ground floor level.
- One placement multi-compliance protection.
- Preformed angles, steps and links.
- Profile dimensions varied to suit site requirements.
