Boothwyn, PA - August 1, 2018
Kestrel Instruments, a Nielsen-Kellerman® brand, introduces the Kestrel Concrete Pro Jobsite Weather Kit for providing critical jobsite environmental data for contractors that can prevent surface cracking, save money, and improve placement results.
With accurate environmental data, contractors can take steps to minimize the risk by adjusting the mix, utilizing protective measures, or postponing the pour. Ambient jobsite conditions during concrete placement and finishing can increase the risk of undesirable plastic shrinkage cracking. Much more than merely an aesthetic problem, cracking brings along serious consequences of cost, time, and effort for contractors: repair work, damage to reputation, business loss, and even expensive litigation.
The Kestrel Concrete Pro Jobsite Weather Kit provides a hands-free, compact, and comprehensive data- logging and monitoring system that assembles to capture readings at the ACI recommended height of 20 inches above concrete. The kit includes:
The Kestrel 5200 Professional Environmental Meter measures and records all site-specific weather conditions that can negatively impact concrete work.
