Spray Bar and Controlled Pressure Testing

Spray Bar and Controlled Pressure Testing

RAM’s Spray Bar and Controlled Pressure Testing: RAM Consultancy often undertakes Spray Bar and Controlled Pressure Testing, a UKAS certified procedure. The service confirms the water tightness of curtain walling and cladding systems by directing concentrated water sprays to specific areas of the building envelope. A distance of 250mm is maintained between the face of elevation and the spray nozzle. The apparatus discharges water at a flow rate of 5 litres a minute per metre at a pressure of 2 to 3 bar through a calibrated control valve and gauge, sustained for a 30 minute continuous test.

Spray Bar Testing is suitable for open-jointed systems such as rainscreen cladding, unsealed patent glazing, opening lights or doors and smoke vents.

Controlled Pressure Testing is intended for testing permanently sealed joints of the installed cladding system to ensure that the performance of the system has not been reduced by the fabrication and installation.

  • Confirm Water tightness of Windows/Cladding
  • Simulates the Leak for discovery
  • 2 Specialist RAM Engineers Required
