a-value measuring system

One of the most common causes of mold formation and building damage in refurbished and modernized buildings is the joint permeability of building components. The Blower Door addition a-value measuring system can be used to find and identify the weaknesses in the building envelope.

DIN 4108-2: 2013-02 defines requirements for the tightness of exterior windows, doors and roof windows. Depending on the number of full floors of the building, joint permeabilities are divided into the classes (1-4) according to DIN EN 12207-1: 2000-06. The requirements for the joint permeability are also formulated in the German Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV).

Evidence management is part of every sustainability certification and energy monitoring. The sustainability certification according to BNB / DGNB was introduced in 2013 for public buildings.
