Super Hi-Speed Rolling Floor Profiler
For Testing Floor Flatness and Levelness
The world’s pre-eminent authority on floor profiling, author of the two F-number systems, principal inventor of superflat floor technology, and inventor of all of the most widely used electronic floor profilers, Allen Face, brings his newest rolling floor profiler, the F-Meter®, to the European marketplace.
The F-Meter® is the finest floor profiling instrument ever made. Pulled manually across the floor, the F-Meter® can measure up to 750 meters (5,000 point elevation readings!) per hour - a data collection rate 3 to 5 times faster than any other device.
- Fastest, most sophisticated and expensive unit on the market
- Makes the measurement of FF and FL extremely cost-effective
- Ideal for testing new large (>1000 m2) slabs
- Measures up to 5000 point elevations per hour
- Fully ASTM compliant
- Sensor accuracy within +/- 0.1 mm per reading
- No external computer to deal with
- Will not lose data - ever!
- Single click downloading into Excel®
- Works 10 + hours on internal Lithium-Ion pack
- No batteries to change!
- Out-of-the-box & ready to go
- in 10 seconds
How F-Meter® Works…
Insensitive to acceleration, the F-Meter takes point elevation readings every 15 centimeters along the run - half the point spacing of the D-Meter®. Using this doubled data density, the F-meter® requires only half as many runs as the D-Meter to collect the same number of readings. Coupled with its much faster speed across the test surface, the F-Meter can reduce total testing time by 300 to 500 percent.
The F-Meter® supports measurement and reporting of both overall and minimum local FF and FL Numbers (including the generation of all associated data lists, profile graphs, and daily reports) in full accordance with the latest versions of ASTM E 1155M. With just a single mouse click, in just seconds, the unit downloads everything into any PC or laptop running Excel®.
Like the D-Meter®, this unit has an internal computer that not only stores the collected data but also analyses it according to ASTM E-1155M and displays the FF and FL results in seconds at the end of each run.
The F-Meter® requires no special skills to operate (see Instructional Videos). After powering up and zeroing the instrument, the operator simply uses the 'GO' and 'STOP' buttons to record the profile runs, which can each range from 3.6 to 72 meter in length.
The F-Meter's® non-volatile memory will retain up to 99 run records, even if the unit is turned off or loses power. This feature eliminates all concerns about data loss and fully supports consolidated, back-at-the-office, data processing and report generation.
The F-Meter® lowers the time and cost for formal F-Number measurement and reporting to insignificance. The instrument thus makes practical the routine measurement of FF and FL on every new floor installation - from the largest industrial project to the smallest commercial/residential job.
By providing fast and reliable estimates of every new floor's FF and FL Numbers, the F-Meter® gives all parties immediate protection against any type of floor tolerance problem.
Areas of Application
Use F-Meter to measurethe profile (viz. flatness, levelness, curling, deflection, etc.) of any near-horizontal surface:
- Random traffic floors
- Defined traffic floors
- Elevated slabs
- Covered floors
- Ice rinks
In other words, any slab-like surface.
Who Can Use F-Meter® ?
F-Meter will be a great asset to:
- general contractors
- concrete flatwork contractors
- testing laboratories
- transportation agencies
- lift truck manufacturers
- floor covering installers
