AIR Barrier testing

QED LAB is recognized as the premier Air Barrier testing agency in the northwest. With thousands of tests performed and using only state of the art equipment, you can rest assured your test will be done accurately, professionally and be standard compliant.

 

 Just a small sampling of our equipment that we recently used on an air barrier / blower door test in Seattle. In not having to expensively rent equipment or have to wait for it to be delivered, lets us give you a faster response time and better pricing than the competition. Together with our experience and knowledge, the value you get is unparalleled.

As you can see above, air barrier / blower door testing is a complicated science, with an almost equal complexity with regards to city, county and state regulations and compliance. At QED LAB we recognize this and have not only perfected the craft of testing the envelope of your building, but we actively are involved in educating construction companies, architectural firms and officials on the nuances respective to their regions. You can rest assured that when you contact or hire us in regards to your project that you will be well informed and well prepared for all your required air barrier / blower door testing, rather than caught off guard with any last minute surprises.

    "QED Lab has been an integral part of our project team success in the past. Their ability to work around our schedule, site access, and various other field conditions is a huge benefit. Their knowledge, experience, and under- standing of the complex exterior skin systems, specified testing standards, and various products being used in the field today is a great asset. The ability to modify their testing process and adapt to the situation while maintaining the testing in strict accordance with the specified standards is probably their greatest strength. They offer reasonable solutions and expert recommendations for the overall success of our projects."

The assembly that your group has designed to conduct testing of ASTM standards for membranes and enclosure assemblies confronted by air and water pressure is remarkable. The degree of test control, ease of setting changes accompanied by visual monitor type performance observation provides excellent testament to QED Labs ability to accurately produce, monitor and record a variety of enclosure test conditions. Thank you for working with us on this project."
