The Residential Compound is one of the projects under Sheikh Zayed Housing Program in Ajman that consists of 306 villas, where a sampling rate of each villa type has been tested. The project received an Air Tightness Test carried by Propetus on 23-Jan-2018.
The conducted testing and carried analysis was successful with the three following tools:
– Retrotec Blower Door AL250R Type / 3101 Series
– Retrotec 3300SR Fan.
– Retrotec DM32 Digital Gauge.
The test was carried by two ATTMA attested engineers that ensured the projects is in line with Estidama requirements according to Systems & Envelope Performance Verification.
The importance of Air Tightness Test is evident in ensuring energy efficiency for buildings. Such inefficiency is a result of leakage of cooled air (uncontrolled airflow), which is considered a great loss of energy as the hot air is easily drawn into the property, causing unwanted heat gains, rise in cooling bills, discomfort and reduced air quality.
