Detect moisture early - with centimeter precision
with app and scanner
Fast and cost-effective thanks to wireless RFID technology.
Moisture is a particular danger for timber construction.
In the constructions of a wooden building, insulation materials are typically installed. When they become saturated with water, they are difficult to dry. One of the reasons is the airtight construction. This so called air tightness layer also hinders the drying process of the walls to some extent.
Undetected water that can accumulate in the wooden modules can affect air quality and can also lead to Mold formation.
Regular inspection as a protective measure
The fundamental problem with water damage in wooden construction is timing. By the time the damage becomes visible, it is already too late. The earlier countermeasures such as localized drying can be taken, the greater the chance of avoiding extensive dismantling measures. Regular inspection of the wooden structure for signs of water infiltration or moisture accumulation is crucial. This enables early detection of vulnerable areas and has been proven to reduce the risk of damage.
HUM-ID Sensors: The non-destructive solution
There are different ways to protect wooden structures from undetected moisture in new constructions. One option is to integrate sensors directly on the construction site, while another approach is to equip prefabricated components with intelligent chips. This is increasingly being done by numerous timber construction companies, such as the pioneer Rubner Holzbau The elements equipped with sensors can be later assigned to a construction project through an app. They can be individually checked for moisture at any time using a handheld reader, without the need to open up the structure.
Our HUM-ID sensors for timber construction are delivered on an absorbent fleece. They can be installed in almost all application scenarios. The passive RFID chips are capable of detecting moisture in their surroundings.
All HUM-ID sensors can be read with just one device. The HD EXA communicates via RFID with the installed sensors and retrieves their moisture status.
The inspections are carried out using a reader device and a smartphone. With the free HUM-ID app, moisture inspections can be conveniently performed. The result reports can be saved and sent in CSV or PDF format.
A valuable building material requires special monitoring.
Timber construction is on trend. Within a few years, timber construction has become a real alternative to mainstream solid constructions across various construction projects. Whether it's daycare centers, residential houses, hotels, or offices, more and more builders are opting for sustainable construction methods. However, the sustainable building material also poses risks. To prevent potential dangers from undiscovered moisture, HUM-ID offers the perfect solution with its moisture sensors specifically designed for timber construction.
