Seco Walls is a complete insulation solution for your basement walls. It not only keeps your basement warm, but also prevents radon gas from entering your home.
The system is designed to work on both new and existing homes. Regardless of a home’s age or the quality of concrete, your basement walls require protection.
Seco Walls does more than insulate, it actively measures and controls the temperature and humidity of the concrete wall. This provides an environment that allows new concrete to “breath” and cure while also ensuring long-term monitoring and protection.
All basement walls are susceptible to moisture, temperature changes, condensation and radon gas. Seco Walls is the only solution that provides long-term protection for you and your family.
The Seco Air Handler is the heart of the Seco Air systems. It senses temperature and humidity, regulating the air between the wall and insulation to maintain a safe space.
Mold in your home grows as a result of excess moisture commonly found in basements. The best solution is to control the humidity and prevent the mold from growing.
Exposure to mold can have negative health effects including coughing, sneezing, and congestion, while also impacting other respiratory problems such as asthma.
Seco Walls actively measures and controls the moisture level of your basement walls, drawing away excess moisture, preventing mold from growing.
Radon gas is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas produced in the environment through the breakdown of the uranium in the soil and rocks. It enters the home through basement walls and floors.
Long-term exposure to high levels of radon in the home may increase the risk of developing lung cancer.
Seco Walls creates a sealed air space against your basement walls, preventing the gas from entering your home.
