Gas Tight Door Pressure Testing

Pressure testing can be carried out with an accuracy of ± 5% if airflow ≥1m3/h and ± 0.05 m3/h for airflows < 1M3/H for positive and negative pressures.

 


If there is requirement to test the air permeability of a Gas Tight Door, EEP can carry out the appropriate testing.

Tests are generally performed in accordance with the BS EN 1023:2016, Windows and Doors, Air Permeability, Test Method.  However EEP can work to customer specific requirements where necessary

To undertake the test doors are mounted on to our test chamber and pressurisation is carried out utilising an air compressor capable of applying a controlled test pressure continuously for one hour.  

Upon completion of the pressurisation the door and chamber are isolated from the pumping system and left attached to an air flow metre to measure any leakage for a period of one hour.

Pressure testing can be carried out with an accuracy of ± 5% if airflow ≥1m3/h and ± 0.05 m3/h for airflows < 1M3/H for positive and negative pressures.

EEP have a wealth of experience in providing a wide range of gas tight testing services and can provide practical advice on the best test methods to suit your project requirements.
