Air Leakage Testing

We provide air leakage testing to meet ASTM E1827 '(Standard Test Methods for Determining Air tightness of Buildings Using an Orifice Blower Door).  KCG has the experience and specialized equipment to perform air leakage to meet these standards.

We provide air barrier performance testing and diagnostic evaluation services in accordance with ASTM E779 (2003), ASTM E1827-96 (2002), ASTM C1060-90 (1997) and ASTM E1186-03. Our experts have experience conducting air tightness testing with fan pressurization and depressurization to accurately determine the normalized air leakage rate of large building enclosures.

The growing awareness of energy efficiency, green building, high performance buildings, and uncontrolled airflow (infiltration or exfiltration) through the building enclosure has led to performance based requirements for the air barrier. The incorporation and quantitative performance testing of a continuous air barrier is becoming a recognized necessity in the construction of buildings and in some cases a requirement of new or retrofit building construction by federal, state and local jurisdictions. Our experts have experience conducting air tightness testing with fan pressurization and depressurization to accurately determine the normalized air leakage rate of large building enclosures.
