A compact simple tester for detecting moisture in wood, wallboard or plaster.

The DampTester is a hand-held moisture tester using the well-proved principle of electrical resistance to determine the presence of moisture in wood and other building materials. Measurements in wood are based on the AS/NZS1080 Standard. The DampTester enables users to rapidly test building framing before cladding is applied thereby avoiding problems at a later stage. It is equally useful for detecting the presence of leaks in completed buildings thus allowing corrective action before permanent damage occurs.


A simple tester for detecting moisture in fire wood.

Everyone knows that wet firewood is difficult to light and once alight does not burn cleanly or efficiently. Even wood which appears dry can often still contain large amounts of water. The WoodTester is a hand-held moisture tester which uses the well-proved measurement of electrical resistance to determine the presence of excessive moisture in firewood.
