Minimise Risks of an Air Tightness Test Fail

Our Air Sealing team will work with you to ensure all areas are successfully sealed, minimising risks of air leakage and an air test fail. We’re also able to assist with final air tightness testing and remove temporary air sealing once the final test is completed.

For effective air sealing, our equipment includes extendable props, sheet materials – polythene, foil-faced boards, COREX, thin plywood, and high-quality tapes and glues (including low tack variants to avoid damaging finishes).

Typical air leakage sites include:

Behind dot & dab dry-lining

Interconnecting cavity leakage - stud partitions

Window gaskets & trickle vents, windowsills

Recessed lighting

Air extract vents/ducts

Loft hatches

External door weather seals & thresholds

Radiator pipe penetrations

All mechanical ventilation needs to be turned off, and in some cases, isolated to minimise risks of an air test fail. Intentional ventilation, such as H and V ductwork, louvres, and trickle vents, can be sealed and any drainage taps filled with water. Smoke vents and other elements including external doors and windows should not be sealed to avoid an invalid air-test.
