InviSense’s delivers a solution to minimize the negative effects of moisture in building structures.
Today it is impossible to know the moisture levels inside the waterproofing in wet areas, without affecting the construction or surface.
InviSense’s micrometer thin moisture sensor is placed on moisture sensitive locations where you want to measure the relative humidity for earliest possible detection of leaks/moisture. This will minimize the cost of a renovation.
Suspected moisture damage
Someone suspects moisture damage in a wet room and a simple investigation is made resulting in the detection of serious moisture damage. The wall is torn apart only to discover that it is completely dry behind the vapor barrier.
The total cost to fix something that was in no need of repair amounts to approximately 300 000 SEK.
Plaster directly on the insulation of single-tier facades
For several years at least 100, 000 homes have been built in Sweden with single-tier facades, meaning that plaster was applied directly to the insulation against the outer wall. The risk is that water might penetrate the wall during rain and in damp weather, and cannot be ventilated quickly enough.
To measure the moisture in this type of construction requires making holes that you normally want to avoid. It is difficult to determine how damp it is, and the risk is that you make too great of an intervention in the building by either repairing too much or being simply too late. Overall, it creates uncertainty and unnecessarily high costs.
In this situation, the InviSense moisture sensor is an appropriate solution with the advantage that it can be included as a requirement in the client’s regulatory and construction documents.
