1.1" thick VAPORMAT™ Radon & Moisture Mitigation Channeling Systems can be
used for easy-to-install, time-saving drainage and air flow beneath the vapor
Used to collect radon, moisture and other toxic vapors coming from the soil
around a house or building and direct them toward an exhaust stack, which leads
them safely out through the roof.
It works effectively as part of a passive
soil depressurization system (PSD) or a fan can be added to the exhaust stack
for an active soil depressurization system (ASD).
- Size: 16'" wide x 45' x 1.1" thick
- Reduces radon, moisture and other toxic vapor levels in the living space
of a home
- Reduces the potential for mold and mildew problems
- Maintains air flow communication across grade beams, downturns, footers
and distant corners
- Reduces the need for an exhaust fan or basement humidifier reducing
lifetime energy costs

- Roll out the VAPORMAT™ (green side faces the earth) on the sub grade after the final preparation and if there will be concrete, before the concrete is poured. Typical layout is in the form of a rectangular loops in the largest areas with branches into the smaller areas. However, the actual layout will be dictated based on site specific dimensions and conditions.
- Position the Radon‐T (P/N 28353) in appropriate location and nail down through the molded in holes with the four (4) 6‐inch steel spikes provided in the Radon‐T Kit.
- Lay the VAPORMAT™ over the Radon‐T and cut a circular hole in the VAPORMAT™ where the riser pipe will be installed. Secure the VAPORMAT™ to the sub grade using VAPORMAT™ Staples (P/N 66107) or 6‐inch steel spikes.
- Roll out the VAPORMAT™, flatten it as much as possible onto the sub grade, stapling it to the ground as you roll it out. The VAPORMAT™ should be stapled to the ground every 3 to 4 feet, in addition to the splices, corners and T junctions.
- Splices, corners and T junctions are connected by overlapping the VAPORMAT™ a minimum of length equal to or greater than the width (i.e., 15 inches). Staple through the upper and lower strips of the VAPORMAT™ strips, using a minimum of four staples at each corner— two to anchor the bottom and two to anchor the bottom layer into the sub grade. It is recommended that
vapor barrier tape (P/N 68066 or 68017, or equivalent) be placed over the seam(s).
- It is recommended that all openings in the fabric at splices, corners and T junctions of the VAPORMAT™ be taped (vapor barrier tape P/N 68066,
68017 or equivalent); however this is not required where the VAPORMAT™ will be overlain by a vapor barrier.
- When the structure is ready for the soil gas vent pipe to be installed, the 4‐inch plug is removed from the Radon‐T and a 4‐inch pipe is glued to the Radon‐T. If vapor barrier is installed, tape should be used to attach to vertical pipe, then a bed of sealant should be applied around the pipe/barrier joint. This process also is used when VAPORMAT is used without vapor barrier.
