YOUR EARLY WARNING SYSTEM FOR MOISTURE INGRESS
Wood and water are arch-enemies. At least in timber construction. As an expert, you know best that condensation, leaks, waterlogging or obstructed moisture can lead to serious damage in wooden buildings, which must be repaired at great cost. With the innovative Monitorix® system, you can help your customers prevent this expensive damage and save money. Already integrated in the construction phase or subsequently applied for renovations and overplastering, the system independently monitors the moisture content in the wall and floor. Thanks to regular reports as well as notifications in case of moisture ingress, countermeasures can be taken immediately if necessary. Rotten wood and mould are now a thing of the past.

Prevents warranty claims due to moisture
In the desired area of the building, the sensors are installed by our technicians on tour. These send their measured values continuously to a terminal that is protected in a technical room. This is where the data is evaluated. The owner can immediately see the current status via a traffic light system – in the event of damage, the exact location and time of occurrence of the damage is reported. Detailed, even historical data can be accessed via a cloud server.
The tests carried out by the OFI have confirmed the functionality of the moisture sensor and its applicability to various insulation materials.

The sensors were tested in a climate chamber and climate cabinet and exposed to different, sometimes extreme temperatures and humidity levels. There was good agreement between the measured air humidities and the reference sensors of Holzforschung Austria.

The sensor is resistant to mould and ageing, resistant to the effects of pressure and shear stress and can be used in any climate.
