BARRIER ONE AND SUSTAINABILITY

The use of Barrier One products in concrete floor systems can help the building project qualify for LEED points in five credit areas. See our LEED Contribution Brochure for specifics.

In general terms, Barrier One products provide benefits in several areas to building teams who are focusing on "green" or sustainable building for both new construction and major renovation projects:

IMPROVES ENERGY PERFORMANCE

Helps reduce the cooling and heating loads in the building by enhancing the insulation qualities of the concrete slab (as a result of increased concrete density)

EXTENDS MATERIAL LIFE

Extends the life of a concrete slab by increasing its strength and closing down the integral capillary system that prevents moisture intrusion

IMPROVES INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

Emits no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and inhibits mold and mildew growth

PROMOTES OCCUPANT COMFORT

Enhance the insulating properties of the slab by making the concrete more dense
