Can you help us pass my Air Test?

Our experienced air tightness consultants have helped all types of clients from self-builders right through to large architectural practices, contractors and planners from the initial design stage right through to the final precompletion air tightness testing. It is our ongoing aim to ensure that all our clients properties are compliant with Building Regulations Document L1 & L2. If you think you need help on your project please don’t hesitate to contact our skilled team of air tightness engineers. As a UKAS accredited company we try and ensure our clients pass their Air testing at the first attempt and we always forward our air testing checklist which identifies what actions need to be undertaken to prepare for the air test. here are a few of the services we offer to help you pass your air test at the first attempt:

  • Air Tightness Design Review – We can undertake a design review of the proposed building to check that the air seal line has adequately designed and potential buildability issues have been taken into account.
  • Thermography Survey – this is performed using an infra-red camera to identify hot and cold spots on the surface of the building envelope, this requires a temperature variation and is usually done in the evening.
  • Ongoing Site Survey Visits – We visit site to check that the contractors are building the envelope (or air seal line) properly to minimise the chance of an air test failure at the end of the project. Any potential problems identified during the works will be highlighted to the site team so that targeted remedial sealing works can be undertaken.
