Air Tight Testing
Air Tightness Testing
The test must be undertaken once all elements of the building's
envelope are sealed, so to ease the compliance process and provide
support from design to completion,air testing is also integrated
into the FSAP bundle.
Jewson is offering Part L compliant air tightness testing and
consultancy from leading industry specialists. Partnering with
Stroma, all the testing, calculations and consultancy required for
compliance with building regulations can be provided for you.
Achieve compliance comfortably and economically by engaging with
Greenworks and Stroma from the outset. At the design stage the air
tightness experts can provide constructive commentary on the
proposed construction details, and facilitate a pivotal influence
over the eventual testing.
A comprehensive review carried out by experienced air-tightness
consultants who will study and comment on the relevant drawn
A simple but effective method of interrogating the air-tightness
strategy and key drawn details in the presence of relevant members
of project teams on-site.
Short training presentations aimed at both designers and
construction staff, which can be invaluable in raising awareness
among those most able to influence the eventual outcome.
Inspections & Comfort Tests
(all available on request). An inspection, prior to tests
carried out by our consultants, that scrutinise the 'air barrier'
details throughout the building and record all observations to be
conveyed in a detailed, illustrated report.
As required if a building fails to achieve the target
permeability rate upon testing, Stroma technicians will generally
employ localised, internal smoke testing methods to identify
remedial works required.

Accredited Final Acceptance
The final test includes all necessary building envelope
calculations and is carried out using multi-point testing methods
to ensue even pressure distribution. In large, complex buildings,
this approach, along with the ability to depressurise the building,
can be vitally important.
