FINANCIAL CAUTION
It
is essential to realise that except where it is mandatory in Class C ductwork in DW/l44 this documentis not an endorsement of the routine testing of ducts but purely a guide to outline the procedures,necessary for testing ducts for conformity with air leakage limits.When proper methods of assembly and sealing of ducts are used a visual inspection will suffice for theverification of a well engineered construction.
WHERE NOT MANDAT0R} DUCT LEAKAGE TESTING IS GENERALLY AN
UNJUSTIFIED SUBSTANTIAL EXPENSE.
