Thermal Image UK Ltd helps you comply with Section 6 of the Scottish Building Standards. Whether your new building is an average flat or as big as Elcho Castle, our team will test its air tightness and check if it follows regulations.
With over a decade of experience in measuring air permeability, our team has built a name for reliable results and recommendations. We use calibrated Retrotec equipment to de-pressurise your building and record air flow. If necessary, we‘ll locate air leakage points using our high-resolution thermal imaging equipment.
Our team performs sample tests on current constructions in Perth. Take note that maisonettes and flats in Perth with warrants from May 2011 and dwellings with warrants from October 2011 are mandated to undergo an air tightness test.

Our air tightness tests help you:
Air tightness tests are usually conducted towards the end of the construction process, and the results are incorporated into the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) and Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) calculations.
Reducing its national carbon footprint is one of Scotland’s goals. An air tightness test enables you to do your part by making buildings energy efficient.
Passing the test means a building won’t experience major heat loss and, therefore, consume less energy. Minimal heat loss also keeps energy costs in check.
Our air tightness tests ensure your building is not too air-tight, as this stifles ventilation and promotes interstitial condensation.
Call us today, and we’ll get to work immediately. First we’ll discuss your requirements on the phone and, if necessary, visit your building. We’re located in central Scotland, which means we can easily access Perth. Once everything’s ironed out, we’ll send you a written confirmation to be followed by the method statement and risk assessment.
We’ll then conduct the air tightness test and discuss the results with you. Our team will also provide a written report. Air Permeability Certificates can be issued within 24 hours.
Thermal Image UK Ltd is one of the few companies in the UK that uses thermography and blower doors together to produce reliable results. Expect a quick turnaround time from our seasoned technicians.
