Improved Glidevale Membrane prevents harmful ground gases in Amber 1 and Amber 2 applications
Glidevale has improved its ground gas protection membrane, the Protect GDB10 Plus. Achieved by increasing the robustness of the material, the membrane’s puncture resistance has been boosted by more than 30%, ensuring less risk of tearing and ripping on site.
The Protect GDB10 Plus is one of the only products on the market that has been methane permeability tested to BS ISO 15105-1 for joints. This provides peace of mind to contractors and housebuilders that the product will create a fully sealed system, following installation in accordance with the company’s fixing instructions.

Glidevale also supplies a range of purpose designed, pre-formed accessories to maintain protection at edges, wall cavities, corners, pipes and services and to remove the need to form difficult shapes on site. A complementary range of underfloor and cavity wall ventilation accessories removes gases and moisture vapour where required, enabling regulatory requirements for ventilation to be met. Only one 150mm gas jointing tape is needed to seal the overlaps, thereby providing a simpler fixing solution to save time and materials on site.
Protect GDB10 Plus is compliant with BS 8485:2015 and is suitable for Amber 1 and 2 applications. The enhanced performance of the product has been independently assessed and certified by BM TRADA.
