Passive Performance, blends the art & science of airtight systems, We;

  • Detail & explain Californian corners and elements to reduce thermal bridging in the design
  • Remove the fear of the unknown Blower Door Test (BDT)!
  • Easily achieve the ACH required!
  • Make the unseen or unknown visible with technology (pressure, smoke and infra-red cameras)
  • Reduce your risk & or do your installation, if preferred. We ensure the building is as airtight as possible before we finish the job
  • Work with you. Builders can do the WRB and keep building, while we do the Air Barrier!
  • Test early & test often, once the windows are installed, we test and then re-test after plumbers & electricians
  • Fix any damage to the air barrier system!
  • Provide Blower Door testing (ATTMA accredited). Depending on the project goals, we can do your BDT or work with your preferred tester!
