Air tightness testing is undertaken to determine a building’s air permeability rating, most commonly in order to demonstrate Part L compliance. Air leakage is a significant cause of heat loss, and is therefore a major contributor to energy inefficiency in buildings. For this reason, Part L of the Building Regulations requires new buildings to meet specific air permeability targets. Operating throughout the UK, Stroma Tech has delivered air leakage testing and air leakage consultancy for over 50,000 buildings including dwellings, office buildings, educational establishments, hospitals, superstores, factories and warehouses. Stroma Tech is an UKAS-accredited testing laboratory No. 2731 and a member of ATTMA (Air Tightness Testing & Measurement Association), giving you assurance of a high-quality service and a robust test result. The air tightness test itself is a relatively straightforward process; most tests and any post-test leakage diagnosis are completed in a day or less.
