Dry Roof Pro – Leak Detector Kit

Find flat roof leaks in dry conditions

Buckley’s Dry Roof Pro’ Leak Detector Kit enables inspectors to quickly and effectively test non-conductive roof finishes (such as bitumen, liquid-applied, single-ply and asphalt) for pinholes, porosity and other defects.

The Dry Roof Leak Detector provides a rapid method of testing a wide range of roofing membrane types and thicknesses of between 64µ and 25.6mm. The kit contains everything required to start testing immediately (even batteries and charger), all contained in a robust, high-visibility transit case.

The Dry Roof Pro’ utilises the non-conductive properties of roof membranes as an electrical insulator. As the detector passes a defect in the membrane, the current required to complete an electrical circuit reduces due to the lower dielectric strength of the membrane. As an electrical
circuit is created, current ‘jumps’ the gap to earth; triggering the detector unit’s alarm.

Buckleys’ Dry Roof Pro’ can test up to 2,000m2 per day and can pinpoint the exact location of leaks and faults; even if they are invisible to the naked eye.
