Building Enclosure / Duct Pressure Testing

Flowtech Engineering offers a complete range of Pressure Testing Services, including whole of building, individual room and mechanical ductwork.

Pressure Testing has occurred in Europe and the USA for many years but it is still in a fledging state in Ireland. However, it will become mandatory for many services in the future.

Building Enclosure Testing is specifically used to determine what, if any, outside air infiltrates a building during its normal operation.  Conditioning of outside air is a major cost in energy consumption.  Building Envelope Testing can help to minimise such costs.

Our Pressure Testing services include:

  • Whole of Building Testing
  • Part Facade Tests
  • Riser Tests
  • Individual Room Testing
  • Contamination and Laboratory Room Testing
  • HEPA Filter Ducting

Our instrument list includes:

  • Rotometers
  • Retrotec Door Testing Test Rigs
  • AirFlow Instruments TSI: Duct Pressure Testing

Flowtech Engineering can provide compliance certification under the following standards / guidelines;

  • CIBSE TM23 – Testing Buildings for Air Leakage
  • ATTMA L2 – Measuring Air Permeability of Building Envelopes
  • NEBB – Building Enclosure Testing
  • AS 9972 – Thermal performance of buildings – Determination of air permeability of buildings – Fan pressurization method
  • AS 4254.2 – Ductwork for air-handling systems in buildings
