Project Description

DUCTWORK LEAKAGE TESTING

Air tightness or leakage testing is a skilled method of determining uncontrolled airflow. Leaking ducts can significantly increase energy bills, dramatically reduce system capacity and performance, as well as result in potentially dangerous indoor air quality problems.

A ductwork leakage test procedure consists of a calibrated fan for measuring an airflow rate and a pressure sensing device to measure the pressure created by the fan flow. The combination of pressure and fan flow measurements are used to determine the ductwork airtightness.

Our ductwork leakage tests are carried out to BESA DW/143 regulations. All instruments used in testing are calibrated to national standards and copies of certification are supplied with reports. Our engineers are fully trained in ductwork leakage testing in the NHS, private healthcare, operating theatres, education, pharmaceuticals, retail, manufacturing, commercial and residential building sectors.

Our ductwork leakage testing service includes:

  • Reports will identify sections of ductwork tested

  • Record the surface area of the ductwork tested

  • Reports will identify pressure classification

  • Record the static pressure

  • Record the leakage factor and rates

  • State the maximum leakage permitted

  • Record the duration of the test

  • Reports will identify any defects found and provide recommendations

  • Test certificate produced

Our collaborative and proactive approach drives efficiency, cost savings and offers our clients peace of mind. We are committed to continuous improvement, through innovation and investment in our personnel, methodologies and equipment.

We offer extremely competitive rates and daytime or evenings to offer minimal disturbance to our customers
