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.
The Tramex Dec Scanner is a mobile non-destructive impedance scanner designed for the instant surveying of moisture conditions in flat roofing and waterproofing systems per ASTM D7954.
The Tramex Dec Scanner is the Original Non-Destructive Moisture Scanner for Flat and Built-up Roofing systems. This video provides assembly instructions and guidelines on how to set up & use the Dec Scanner when performing Flat & Built-up Roofing surveys as per ASTM D7954 standard.
John Hull, the President of Gulf Infrared, LLC, talks about the Tramex Dec Scanner and the necessity of commercial roof moisture surveys. Currently, only approximately 32% of commercial roofs were torn off and replaced actually needed to be. So, two-thirds of the commercial roofs that were torn and thrown in landfills could have been candidates for repair, if proper moisture testing was implemented. This has huge environmental implications from unnecessary roof replacements, and some states have begun to look at and implement mandatory roof moisture testing.
