ILD®: WORLD-LEADER IN INTEGRITY TESTING TECHNOLOGY
International Leak Detection (ILD®) is a world leader offering advanced technology in leak detection and smart roof monitoring. Our proven expertise and proprietary solutions provide building owners with peace of mind performance and protection. We understand the damage and destruction water can cause through the smallest puncture, membrane split or mechanical default, and we’re committed to safeguard your roofing investment, the structural integrity of your building, the health of occupants and the security of building contents.
ILD has successfully tested millions of square feet of waterproofing and roofing membranes around the world using our proprietary Electric Field Vector Mapping (EFVM®) technology. We’ve tested through overburden and ballast, and on horizontal and vertical surfaces, providing perfectly accurate results. This test method delivers a low voltage electrical charge between the non-conductive membrane surface and the conductive structural deck or substrate which is earthed or grounded. By applying water on the surface of the membrane and using it as a conductive medium, an electric field is created. Any breach in the membrane creates a vector that can then be measured and mapped with pinpoint accuracy by an ILD expert leak detector, in order to be repaired.
Developed by ILD through years of research and field installation, Vector Mapping Conductive Mediums were created to test membranes or coatings over non-conductive substrates to allow for early breach detection and accurate EFVM testing results. With this approach, moisture penetration can be located quickly and cost-effectively repaired.
There are smart investments, and there are ‘smart’ investments. Protecting your roof from water damage that you can’t see with an intelligent rooftop monitoring system, is both! A building owner risks greater restoration costs, health concerns and property damage the longer a water leak goes undetected. Enter Smartex®, 24/7 rooftop monitoring technology from ILD that tracks the soundness of waterproofing systems and notifies property owners immediately upon a breach. Smartex® lets you track and trace in real time what’s happening in the roofing envelope to ensure the safety and security of what lays beneath it.
International Leak Detection is a world leader in integrity testing and intelligent monitoring. Since 2001, we’ve located more than 1.9 million breaches and inspected over 500 million square feet of membrane. Get ILD solutions working for you!
