Isov'Air, the first air-tight self-checking machine

Isover's latest innovation, the Isov'AIR test system, allows you to self-assess the airtightness of your building sites, whether in single-family houses or in a collective building. This efficient concept will allow you to anticipate the official measurement of the RT 2012 standard for airtight insulation, based on constructions capable of receiving a BBC label.

It is in fact to control the pressure difference between the outside and the inside of the building, all the air inlets or outlets being clogged.
From an encrypted control document called evaluation sheet, the result displayed on the manometer of the machine is compared with the reference numerals. In the event of a discrepancy, a systematic check of the possible areas of leakage with a smoke device makes it possible to detect the slightest defect and thus to restore a result in accordance with the standard enacted.
