Air Leakage testing was done on Luxyclad siding and soffit, meeting the ASTM E283 requirements.
ASTM E283 & Test Results
- ASTM E283 is a standard procedure for determining the air leakage characteristics under specified air pressure differences at ambient conditions
- Next to rain, air leakage is important to the durability of any structure - to prevent moisture and rot from reaching the framing
- It's important to test for air leakage to ensure good quality of air filtration in the structure, as well as prevent excessive energy use
- The Luxyclad aluminum cladding system (both siding and soffit) passed the ASTM E283 requirements
