FLAT ROOF LEAK DETECTION, MOISTURE MAPPING & INTEGRITY TESTING...
From the time a flat roof has been installed it should be maintained and inspected on a regular basis with problems and defects attended to and corrected as soon as they are located. Tramex moisture inspection tools for roofing provide the fastest, simplest, most economical & safest methods of locating moisture damage in flat roofs.
Designed to quickly & non-destructively scan an entire roof area to ASTM D7954, the Dec Scanner & RWS moisture meters are ideal for tracing the source of a leak, mapping out the damaged insulation & roofing materials as well as perfoming an integrity test on a newly installed roofing system.
No need for special operating licences or to clear the building of occupants and best of all, testing can be performed at any time of the day.
Obtaining as much information about the roof as possible in advance is invaluable. A set of roof drawings or plans make moisture mapping much easier and a knowledge of the construction will make the job of calibration much faster.
The Dec Scanner is by far the simplest device to use for moisture testing and leak detection of a flat roof, however even a small amount of training can help new users to avoid simple pitfalls.
When 25mm or 50mm of insulation in a flat roof was the norm, Thermal Performance was still regarded as a luxury by many. Clients often resented the additional cost; “Why can’t I just have a new waterproofing?”; “What use is that to my bottom line?” etc. However, increasing energy prices, fuel shortages, sustainability and demand for higher comfort levels now require more insulation.
