Enhance Concrete Crack Monitoring with Nextstar High-Quality Gauges
Features of the Concrete Crack Monitoring Gauge
High-Quality Concrete Crack Monitor
Discover an affordable and top-notch solution for tracking concrete cracks in foundations and structures with Nextstar's high-quality concrete crack gauges. Easily mount these gauges using standard wall anchors and screws, or opt for a quick-setting epoxy for a secure attachment to concrete walls or floors.
Accurate Measurement with Plus & Minus 20 mm Precision
- ±1 mm (±0.04") Marks on X-Y axes; ±0.5 mm (±0.02") discrimination
- ±20 mm (±0.79") Horizontal and ±10 mm (±0.38") Vertical range
Benefit from a clear and precise scale that remains easy to read from any position. Monitor corner cracks effortlessly by utilizing an angle bracket during application, ensuring accurate measurements with a range of plus or minus 20 mm.
Efficient Vertical & Horizontal Movement Monitoring
After installation across crack lines, the concrete crack gauge enables seamless monitoring of both vertical and horizontal shifts. This straightforward design facilitates quick identification of motion in any two-axis or combination, providing valuable information on the direction of concrete movement for appropriate reinforcement solutions.
Tracking Movement Over Time with Crack Gauges
Install the crack gauge monitor for extended periods, such as six months or more, to reveal crucial insights. Record movement periodically, using a simple method like capturing regular photos with a cell phone. This practice is especially effective for detecting movements over a 24-hour period, prevalent in foundations facing structural issues or concrete cracks, particularly in regions with significant daily temperature variations.
Simple install with Epoxy Paste or Screws and Plugs
Achieve easy installation by drilling four small anchor holes in the concrete and securing the crack gauge with screws, or utilize epoxy paste for a reliable attachment. In cases where the concrete surface is clean and smooth, two-way VB tape can be used. The gauge's removal and reuse are made convenient, offering flexibility in monitoring various locations.
Durable and Cost-Effective Solution
Experience the durability of Nextstar Concrete Crack Gauges, providing a cost-effective solution for repeated use. This is particularly advantageous for field engineers managing multiple gauge installations in one location, contributing to cost-effectiveness.
Versatile Application on Floors, Walls, or Corner Cracks
Install the concrete crack gauge on a variety of surfaces, including concrete floors, foundation walls, retaining structures, floor slabs, or expansion joints. This versatility ensures comprehensive monitoring across different elements of your structure.
Ideal for Poured or Block Construction
Utilize the standard crack gauge for monitoring poured concrete or any block construction, including cracks or tuckpointed joints. This ensures effective monitoring and early detection of movements in diverse construction types.
