Oven Testing

This is still the most accurate method for establishing the moisture content of materials and, in particular, wood. We have the facilities to test samples using the approved BS EN 13183-1 2002 method. This is especially useful with plywood, chipboard, MDF and other manufactured products where accurate results are required and cannot be achieved with electronic meters.

Training

We can provide training to suit your needs, from installation, to moisture testing to pre-start inspections. This can be on site or in your own premises. We are an approved trainer for Junckers UK Ltd, Reflex Sports Floors Ltd, Boflex Sports Floors, and Boen Floors and are conversant with most types of timber floor systems. Our trainer holds the CIEH Trainers Certificate.
We are convinced that the only way forward to success is for a trained and qualified work force.
