Detec Systems Australia
Electronic Leak Detection
Every year, building owners, development teams, and their insurers spend hundreds of millions of dollars litigating and repairing water intrusion problems. The collateral damages include thousands of tons of wasted building materials, increases in insurance rates, non-renewal of policies, lost productivity, and injured reputations.
The vast majority of these problems are the result of water intrusions that cause moisture to accumulate in the concealed spaces of buildings.
Unchecked moisture accumulation will reduce the structural integrity of buildings by creating rot in wood and corrosion in steel. Moisture can affect the health of occupants directly by breeding harmful organisms such as mould spores.
How Does Detec Systems Work?
- ◎ Confirms conclusively if a horizontal and vertical membrane is watertight
- ◎ Locates breaches in conductive membranes including black EPDM
- ◎ Locates breaches during installation so repairs can be made immediately
- ◎ Detects breaches in confined spaces including rebar
- ◎ Locates breaches caused by trade damage prior to the placing of overburden
- ◎ Provides a safe, precise, cost-effective, and conclusive substitute for flood testing and vector mapping
- ◎ Pinpoints hard to find leaks in older membranes
- ◎ Delivers quality control through third-party verification
- ◎ Preferred by warranty providers, contractors, and consultants
Our Recent Projects
Detec Systems is reliably monitoring and testing all types of roofing and waterproofing assemblies
Faulkner Road Community Centre currently being built by PACT Construction required as per Architects specification provided by Bollig Architects to have the Soprema waterproof membranes fully tested by Detec Australia
Freyssinet were contracted to remove tiling, repair existing waterproof membrane on one half of the building which had been replaced 2 years earlier and install a new membrane system on the remaining half. Detec Australia was contracted to find the leaks in the first half and test the new membrane to ensure no leakage will occur.
Cooper and Oxley engaged Detec Australia to test the liquid membrane being installed on the carpark deck and terrace walkway and gardens with retail areas, changerooms etc directly below to ensure no leaks were found in the waterproof membrane.
Refurbishment with a new 2 layer Soprason 3-4 AR Torch on Membrane completed by SRG Global
Who Is Detec Australia
Detec Systems, serving the building industry since 2003, develops and provides leading-edge technology in
the field of Electronic Leak Detection (ELD) internationally.
IntegriScan’s unique technology facilitates reliable testing compared to vector mapping and archaic flood. The IntegriScan equipment eliminates the need for a perimeter wire by limiting the testing area to directly below the Scanning Platform.
◎ Test 100% of the waterproofing membrane versus other "hunt and peck" methods
◎ Reliably test vertical surfaces
◎ Wall junctions, perimeter details and membrane penetrations are easily tested
◎ Minimal set-up time
Integriscan Membrane Integrity Scans
For new & existing construction
For locating hard to find leaks in existing structures
For ensuring long-term sustainability for the entire building enclosure
