Elevate Your Professional Toolkit with the Predator Gauge

Site Inspections presents the Predator Gauge, an innovative multi-tool engineered specifically for those in inspections, construction, and waterproofing sectors. Incorporating five critical tools into one streamlined, robust device, the Predator Gauge reshapes the landscape of compliance measurements and inspections.

Enrich Your Documentation with Photographic Evidence

Armed with the Predator Gauge, effortlessly capture photographic proof of non-compliant workmanship or defects. Utilize these visuals in your reports, or share them directly with tradespeople or clients to highlight areas of concern.

The Predator Gauge: Five Essential Features Redefining the Industry

The Predator Gauge harmonizes the following quintessential functionalities:

  1. Wet Film Thickness Gauge: Offers precise measurements from 0.5mm to 3.5mm graduations, enabling accurate evaluations of WFT coatings from primers to thick coat liquid applications.
  2. Fillet/Bond Breaker Gauge (AS 3740): Calibrated at 12mm for class 3 membranes and 35mm for class 2 membranes, adhering to the AS 3740 standards as outlined in Table 4.10.
  3. Fillet/Bond Breaker Gauge (AS 4654.2): Calibrated at 15mm x 15mm as per AS 4654.2, catering to waterproofing membranes for external above-ground use that require a 15mm x 15mm fillet/bond breaker for liquid membranes.
  4. Ruler: Furnished with a 50mm corner ruler featuring 1mm graduations, enabling swift measurement of cracks, horizontal run of the perimeter junction, or even the 25mm membrane termination above finished floor level.
  5. Crack Measure Gauge: Showcases a cut-out window in the centre, facilitating alignment of cracks (range 0.1 – 2mm) with corresponding numbers and lines.
  6. Tool Holder: Conveniently hang the Predator Gauge on your belt lanyard for instant access and application.

Always cross-verify the fillet/bond breaker dimensions with the manufacturer's Technical Data Sheet. Ensure the fillet/bond breaker sizes are in alignment with the membrane system and meet the minimum requirements of the Australian standards.

Superior Australian Quality

Proudly made in Australia, the Predator Gauge is crafted from hardened 420 stainless steel, guaranteeing longevity and resistance to wear. Measuring 75.4mm in width, 99mm in length, and with a thickness of 1.2mm, it's a compact, essential addition to your inspection toolkit. Invest in the Predator Gauge and catapult your efficiency and precision to unrivaled levels!

Black Ops Series Predator Gauge Care Instructions:

Though our Black Ops Series tools are robust, scratching may expose the silver steel underneath, resulting from interaction with other tools or rough surfaces. Back face imperfections and metal exposure at edges may also occur. Clean by wiping with isopropyl alcohol or turps, without impacting the surface finish. A touch of oil helps diminish scratch marks, maintaining your tool in peak condition. Let's go!

Examination of AS 3740 and AS 4654.2 Fillet/Bond Breaker Requirements:

AS 3740 Fillet/Bond Breaker Requirements:

  1. Definition: Bond breaker is a system that prevents the membrane from bonding to the substrate.
  2. Class II Membranes: These medium extensibility membranes require a minimum bond breaker/tape width of 35mm.
  3. Class III Membranes: These high extensibility membranes require a minimum bond breaker/tape width of 12mm.
  4. Bond Breaker Profile: Although not explicitly defined, the diagrams in the standard depict a concave finish for the bond breaker.

    AS 3740 Table 4.10 Bond Breakers

     Membrane class
    Elongation at break
    Minimum bond breaker/tape width
    10 % to 59 %
    100 mm
    60 % to 299 %
    35 mm
    ≥ 300 %
    12 mm

    NOTE 1 Bond breakers for Class I membranes (low extensibility) allow the membrane to flex rather than stretch.
    NOTE 2 Bond breakers for Class II membranes (medium extensibility) allow the membrane to stretch. If a tape is used as a bond breaker, either the membrane will not bond to the tape or the tape will have elastic properties similar to the membrane.
    NOTE 3 Bond breakers for Class III membranes (high extensibility) allow the membrane to have even thickness.

Two application options for class III membrane bond breaker:

  • Option 1 (Mitre Finish): Sealant bead should extend up the wall and along the floor for a minimum of 8.49mm each (total distance of 16.98mm).
  • Option 2 (Concave Finish): Sealant bead should extend up the wall and along the floor for a minimum of 7.64mm each (total distance of 15.28mm).

Note: A concave bond breaking sealant bead provides a larger bond breaking surface than a mitre one when applied at the same distances, resulting in a smaller but equally effective bond breaking bead.

AS 4654.2 Fillet Requirements:

  1. Fillet Usage: Fillets are necessary when a membrane changes from a horizontal to a vertical plane or from one vertical plane to another.
  2. Fillet Size: The standard requires a 40mm x 40mm fillet for sheet membranes and a 15mm x 15mm fillet for liquid membranes. The 15mm x 15mm requirement for liquid membranes means the hypotenuse side of the triangle (the fillet) is approximately 21.21mm.

Remember, always check the fillet/ bond breaker dimensions with the product manufacturer's Technical Data Sheet to ensure compatibility with the membrane system and alignment with the Australian standards.
