What happens if I fail my room integrity test?

If you fail your room integrity test please don’t panic. We can quickly undertake targeted smoke testing to locate and record the air leakage paths. Smoke testing is undertaken whilst the room is pressurised, the smoke will then move towards the nearest air leakage path. Targeted remedial works can then be undertaken by the contractor to seal the building envelope. Once the appropriate remedial work has been completed the enclosure should be retested to confirm if an acceptable level of integrity has been reached by achieving a retention time in excess of 10 minutes. If this is not possible during the test visit, we issue a comprehensive smoke survey report listing the air leakage paths for your operatives to reference during their sealing works.

If your building has failed its air tightness test and you need further advice on how to pass, please call us on 01525 303905 or e-mail us at info@aptsoundtesting.co.uk and we will guide you through the air tightness process, ensuring that you receive the right level of advice and service to pass your air testing.
