New Dual-Sensor Cross Scan Technology (Proprietary)
Gravity – water is temporarily dammed over a horizontal surface to determine the effectiveness of the waterproofing. Visual inspection for moisture intrusion.
IntegriScan utilizes a mobile platform that isolates a smaller test area for better conductance and more reliable readings
All downspouts are blocked, water sits on the roof for 24-48 hours. Visual inspection for moisture intrusion.
100% of horizontal and vertical surfaces
Flooded surfaces only
|TEST INVERTED ASSEMBLIES|
Will indicate (but not find) only obvious leaks, will not pinpoint breaches. Hydrostatic pressure is a factor.
|TEST CONVENTIONAL ASSEMBLIES|
YES, with TruGround® installed directly below the membrane
Flood testing of a conventional roof is typically not possible due to structural stress.
|TEST EPDM||YES – ONLY Detec Systems can test black EPDM and semi conductive waterproofings.||NO – Flood testing is not recommended due to structural stress.|
|TEST VERTICAL SURFACES||YES – Detec’s Vertical Scan Unit (VSU) is a belt mounted roller apparatus that will detect breaches in verticals.||NO|
|TEST TIME||Typically 5,000 sq ft/hr||1 day to construct dams and 24-48 hours to test|
Pinpoints locations of water ingress
Extrapolation from location of interior leak
