30 Dec Air Leakage Testing Using A Depressurized Globe
Last week we performed qualitative testing of an air barrier system at a new commercial facility using air leakage testing. Utilizing a globe system hooked up to a pressure fan we were able to provide QC inspections throughout the project to determine if the air barrier system had been installed thoroughly.
Air Leakage Testing Results
While we did find a couple leaks, the leak sites were not large enough to cause concern since this spray applied air barrier was designed to be an air barrier only. Had this system been designed as an air AND water barrier, we would have been concerned even with the smallest leak sites found.
