Air leakage consultancy and testing
Sometimes referred to as Part L or air pressure testing, air leakage testing is the method by which to accurately establish the air permeability of an external building envelope. This has a direct and discernable effect on the energy required to heat or cool the occupied spaces within all buildings. The requirements for airtightness vary from project to project up to the worst allowable leakage limit of 10m3/(h.m2) at 50 Pa, as specified in Part L of the Building Regulations (England and Wales, 2006 and revisions).
Tighter, more energy efficient constructions typically require greater consideration at each stage of the design and construction process. RSK's advice is tailored to suit your specific requirements. Our inspection regime provides a valuable independent input to your project quality management procedures and our testing specialists are always ready to act to help you hit your deadlines.
All our test equipment is fully calibrated and our test engineers are trained in accordance with current technical standards, for example, ATTMA TS1, TSL1 and 2). Our test systems and procedures are UKAS accredited.
