Buildings that are subject to vibration, ground movement, extreme weather conditions and construction activities need to be monitored to ensure they continue to have structural health and viability. It is important to detect movements, vibrations, structural changes and responses of buildings to these local conditions in order to identify potential failure. Monitoring provides the information required to support a safe living and working environment.
The REF TEK building Monitoring Solutions provide the data required by seismic and structural specialists. All REF TEK solutions interact with other sensors such as strain meters, inclinometers and tilt sensors, to ensure a complete analysis, and comply with the building code requirements of cities in seismically active areas in the United States such as Los Angeles and San Francisco.
