NEW YORK CITY CRACK GAUGE MONITORING
Cracks occur in all structures regardless of material or age.
Job specifications that require crack monitoring is accomplished by installing "telltale" crack gauges. It may also be prudent to install wireless crack gauges. These provide real time data on the normal expansion and contraction of a crack. During the PreConstruction Survey Process, Protectonic will identify
sensitive separations in the construction and set up the Crack Monitoring Log.
Wireless monitors can be cost effective if the site requires frequent checks or if the cracks are structurally sensitive.
