This poster presents a new radon sub-slab suctioning system. This system makes use of a grid of horizontal pressurised air ducts located within the lower part of the rigid insulation layer of the ground floor slab. For this purpose a new system of prefabricated lightweight elements is introduced. The system is shown to be effective in preventing radon from polluting the indoor air by introducing low pressure in the horizontal grid of air ducts. How to implement and use the system in an effective way is described.
