Air Tightness Testing / Air Sealing
Air Tightness Testing (also referred to as Pressure Testing or Air Permeability Testing) is a requirement of Part L1A & L2A of the Building Regulations for newly built Domestic and Commercial Buildings.
Air Tightness Testing measures the amount of uncontrolled air flow (also known as air leakage) within a building as a result of unsealed gaps or cracks within the thermal envelope
