Floor Flatness / Levelness Testing & Consulting

CCMET proudly offers specialty testing on floor flatness and floor levelness. Our technicians and engineers have been trained through three levels of in-house training to evaluate flatness and levelness of both defined and random traffic floors according to the related standards. Moreover, determination of slab camber and preparing surface remediation plans are additional services related to this area of testing offered by CCMET. Using Dipstick® Profiler (a Type A instrument), CCMET provides our clients with the fastest and most cost-effective way to the right answer. Through our instructive reports we are increasing awareness to the industry about the importance of floor flatness/levelness testing. Below is a very quick review of CCMET’s floor flatness services. Should you have any questions or requests, do not hesitate to contact us.

3D Mapping

One of CCMET’s new specialty services offered is 3D Mapping of floors. This service is usually requested by our clients who would like to:

  1. Develop a remediation (grinding or patching) instruction for a slab which has not met flatness requirements.
  2. Evaluate the accuracy of predicted deflections on the slab.
  3. Evaluate the efficiency of designed PT (post-tensioned) slabs.

3D mapping is required soon after finishing the slab, and then again after a specific action is taken (e.g. removing the form works, tensioning the PT cables, remediating the slab, or simply allowing for an elapsed time after construction).

This image shows an example of a floor 3D mapping, which was performed in one of our projects in the Greater Vancouver area, in BC. The measurement lines in both X and Y directions were 2 to 4 feet apart. The computer software that was developed for this service interpolates the elevations in between the lines and provides the user with the surface profile.

The measurements were performed with industry leading floor profiling equipment. All the elevations are referenced to the top corner of the slab (which was arbitrary defined as zero elevation). The elevations are in [mm]. The white areas were not measured (balcony and stairwells).
