Building and ductwork airtightness represent a key challenge towards very-low energy buildings and therefore towards the ambitious 2020 targets set in the recast of the energy performance of buildings directive.
François Rémi Carrié and Peter Wouters
The objective of the WTA* data sheet “Air tightness in existing buildings” is to support planners and contractors in modernizing and renovating buildings.
Wilfried Walther
This presentation will give an introduction to the approach of determining the required number of testing fans when conducting air tightness measurements of large buildings.
Paul Simons
The manufactures tests of windows in Europe are executed in accordance with the CE-directive. Air- and water tightness testing are performed in accordance with EN 1026 and classified in accordance with EN12207.
Walter Sebastian
The Association for Air Tightness in Buildings (FLiB e.V.) offers air tightness testing teams the possibility to check their testing performance as well as that of their equipment.

During the BlowerDoor building test, it must be ensured that all building parts of the test building or the test section have air connection, and that the test object can be considered one single zone.
Stefanie Rolfsmeier, Paul Simons
The round-robin test of Czech airtightness providers was organised in order to obtain information about the measurement equipment generally used and in order to compare the test results given by different technicians operating with different devic
Jiri Novak
The contribution informs about the foundation of a professional network of Czech airtightness test providers and gives basic information about the organisation and activities of this association.An idea of closer cooperation between Czech building

The actual question is as follows: “Is the building envelope of the first passive house in China sufficiently airtight?” To determine air-tightness in China, a pressure differential test was to be conducted.
Michael Meyer-Olbersleben
The new Part 7 of the Thermal Insulation Standard DIN 4108 describes the permanent design of the airtight layer of heated or air-conditioned buildings. In the chapter on requirements, some terms have been redefined.
Ulrich Höing
To describe the quality of adhesive joints and connections for airtight layers, our research includes comprehensive investigations into the effect of different working conditions and accelerated aging.
Rolf Gross, Anton Maas
Today, labels introduced in some countries to certify standardised low energy buildings, such as ‘Passive House’ in Germany and ‘Minenergie’ in Switzerland, are becoming increasingly applied in Europe.
P. Eykens, J. Langmans, R. Klein, S. Roels
The air tightness of building has been a serious problem over the last 30 years. In 1979 the international Air Infiltration Centre (AIC) was erected within the International Energy Agency (IEA) platform.
Willem de Gids
We have developed a simple model to estimate ductwork leakage and heat conduction losses in steady-state conditions for a balanced ventilation system.
