Air tightness

Description and standards

 

 

Tests were carried out on single and double doors at the CSTC (Technical and Scientific Construction Centre – an accredited laboratory), in accordance with current European standards:

 

EN 1026 : Windows and doors – Airtightness – Classification

EN 12207: Windows and doors – Airtightness – Test method

 

The standards provide for 4 classes (L1, L2, L3, L4) classified in ascending order of airtightness,
based on:

 

  • length of seals (m³/h.m)
  • total area (m³/h.m²)

Therefore, class L4 achieves the best airtightness (3 m³/h.m² at 100 Pa).

Results

 

Single doors: from class L1 to class L4

 

Double doors: from class L1 to class L4

 

Accessories used at the bottom of the door:

 

  • No low finish
  • Kältefeind sealing system
  • Schall-Ex sealing system
  • Ultra-thin doorsill
  • 4 sides of doorframe

 

Combination of performance features

Thanks to their modular structure based on Metal+, Heinen airtight products can also have other performance features combined and added to them, such as:
