Loss Mitigation: PreventionHow Deflection Monitoring Works




Deflection Monitoring pinpoints areas where deflection exceeds predetermined tolerances, resulting in an alarm condition whereby personnel are notified that action must be taken to avoid a more serious potential outcome. Lasers and targets monitor deflection. Alarm panels capture events and communicate when action is recommended.

“There is absolutely no question in my mind that the DMD-1000 provided our manager with the needed information in two instances to go and rectify the problem before it became catastrophic. There would have been over $1 million in damage not including the fact that the cinema would have been closed for 8 to 10 weeks.”
