ROOFTECH through its intensive R&D efforts, launches a proprietary SmartMembrane™, which has inbuilt sensors that can detect the concealed leaking zones in real-‐time! Further, we recognize the inherent benefits of advance liquid applied membranes like Polyurea etc. and that it may not be viable to go for pre-‐formed membrane sheets every time. We have a special sensor SmartMembrane™ sheet which can be laid on majority of waterproofing layers to make it smart and detect breaches in real-‐time.
SmartMembrane™ is a sensor scrim that is laid directly on the top on any electrically isolating waterproofing layer and underneath any overburden assembly coming on the top of the membrane. Including SmartMembrane™ in the built up assembly, allows the user to troubleshoot & identify leakages in the ‘concealed‘ waterproofing layer, without the need to remove the overburden ! User has an option of selecting Passive or Active System. Passive System basically leaves SmartMembrane and junction cables at pre-defined locations allowing ROOFTECH technician to plug-in his SmartNode and identify leakages by zonal accuracy. The scanning can be done in a scheduled manner as a part of annual check up or during the instances of leakages upon request of client. Active System does not need a physical presence of a technician to monitor the health of waterproofing layer. Instead, SmartNode are installed in the landscape area at a pre-approved locations which basically collects the data constantly and upload the same on ROOFTECH’s cloud server. This allows the monitoring of waterproofing layers in Real-Time.
SmartNode is a Monitoring Box which is in electrical communication with the SmartMembrane. It is basically an add-on Node that enables monitoring of the SmartMembrane in an ‘automatic’ mode. On a scheduled interval (daily / fort-night / monthly), resistance and potential difference readings of waterproofing layer is calculated, data is analysed on the hardware level and leaking zone is identified with selected zonal accuracy.
