Why attend a MemTech course?

Gas protection is a technical solution to prevent or to control gas penetration into properties and structures.

Recent years has seen a greater awareness within the building sector of the risks associated with ground gases, which has led to an increasing number of construction projects requiring the use of suitable protection systems.

Safeguarding developments and the occupants should be second to none.

Delta Membrane Systems Limited is at the forefront of Ground Gas Protection Solutions; our training course is aimed to offer experience and knowledge.  We’ve helped shape and develop standards, when you train with Delta, you benefit from expertise.

Our one day training course provides good practice on risk assessment, a pragmatic approach to ground gas risk, legislation and latest standards, an insight into what ground gas protection systems are and guidance on gas protection measures.
