Product Idea for Wagner - eaadams - 06-20-2011 12:27 PM
Dear Wagner / Jason,
I have an idea for a product add on to your RH sleves.
One of the headaches for flooring mechanics is checking the flatness of the floor. You can take a concrete screed and crawl around on your knees for hours in a big building looking for high spots & birdbaths.
ACI & ASTM haven't come up with a simple standard for laser levels for floor covering (there are standards for tab placement for concrete underlays). Alan Face's FF/FL measurements are useless for finished floor covering applications based on FF/FL being done 72hrs after pour and flooring being months later.
One way flooring mechanics can look for flatness is to tape a piece of string on the floor and rotate it around looking for high / low spots.
My idea: Why don't you make some sort of insert for the RH hole that has a string attachment? You could then do some math magic and determine in any space where to put your rh meters to get best coverage for both humidity and for testing the floor for levelness. some sort of circle pattern inside a rectangle algorithm.
And here is the aforementioned math: http://www.fernuni-hagen.de/FBWIWI/forschung/beitraege/pdf/db396.pdf
