Measurement of local air tightness in buildings: Nordtest-project 176-79

Veijo Siitonen

Research output: Book/ReportReport


The local air tightness in buildings can be determined by the so-called collector chamber method, where the room or the whole building is presurized and the air leaking through the target area is collected with a pressure compensated chamber to a measurement device. According to this principle, a measurement instruction with a sample inspection system is proposed and presented in the appendix. This paper is a background for the proposal and indicates the basis for the solutions.
