SG Eco Vent – BS & CEN Standards

Our SG Eco Vent was tested by Wintech in March 2009 with the test vent being 1.2m wide by 2.0m high.

The test sequence was to determine the weather tightness of the sample with respect to air permeability, water penetration, and wind resistance. The vent passed both BS and CEN standards at the first attempt . We then retested using 100PA as the test criteria and still passed class 4 in all categories.

The following summarises the results of testing carried out, in accordance with BS 6375 part 1: 2004 and the relevant testing and classification standards.
