That huge building you own is a significant investment that you want to last, so it pays for itself and more. The best way to do this is with structural monitoring. The newest generation of control panels plays host to sensor technologies that provide data logging and programmable alarm and alert functionality in this process. This building health monitoring system lets you accurately track the data in real-time.
With such solid information, your engineers see what’s going on with your warehouse, sports arena, college, or office building. This allows them to recommend maintenance that prevents or corrects problems that could shorten the longevity of your investment.
Collecting Data for Physical & Mechanical Damage
Structural monitoring provides data in two main areas – physical and mechanical damage. We’re talking about factors, such as temperature and humidity, which lead to corrosion and oxidation by physical damage. This also includes damage done by mold, plants, and insects, which can be significant over time.
Mechanical damage involves tracking vibrations, movement, and cracks. Over time, these threaten the building’s structural integrity. With regular monitoring, you can compare the changes and take action to protect and preserve your structure.
