Warehouses and logistics halls
This type of facilities is distinguished by a large flat roof, intensive movement of forklifts inside and constant flow of goods, transhipped on delivery docks. The central elements of the halls are: cross-dock zone, high storage racks and loading confectioning zones.
The challenge in these halls is to ensure continuity of supply chain. The poor condition of the flat roof structure or its overloading leads to the building being out of service. On a daily basis, full protection should also be provided for expensive machines operating in such facilities. Only precise and constant monitoring of the roof structure can provide you with this.
Diverse facilities, in which technologically advanced machines, production lines, and semi-finished products and components necessary for the production of equipment, cars or other products are installed under a flat roof.
Particular attention should be paid to the protection of expensive production lines and other machines operating in the hall. Defects caused by damage to the roof load capacity, as well as downtime resulting from renovation or repair work, generate significant expenses. This can be prevented by constant access to information on the state of the roof structure, provided by the Smart Roof Platform.
This type of buildings is most often characterized by a sports, entertainment, exhibition or clerical function. It is distinguished primarily by a large number of people staying in it at the same time, which makes the issue of ensuring their safety an absolute priority.
The safety of the people gathering here must be a priority here. Mass events, fairs and events take place in these types of buildings. Improper roof exploitation can result in the evacuation of thousands of people or – in the worst case – a construction disaster. Current control of the roof load capacity and full knowledge of the condition of the structure is the only way to ensure the safety of users of this type of buildings.
Shopping centers, hypermarkets and DIY stores usually have a large-area flat roof. On the premises of such buildings, thousands of customers and staff are present at the same time, and often the commercial facilities also include multi-storey car parks.
Daily, such buildings are visited by tens of thousands of people. Negligence in the operation of a flat roof or incomplete knowledge about the condition of the roof structure poses a serious threat not only because of forced evacuation and drastic customers’ opinion deterioration, but also due to serious accidents. To prevent these dramatic but possible situations, it is necessary to monitor flat roof structure on an ongoing basis.
Installing PV panels on flat roofs requires advanced technical expertise and full knowledge whether the installation of photovoltaics with ballast will not affect the building structure.
An improperly selected photovoltaic installation can damage the flat roof or lead to damage to the building structure. Changing the snow load distribution is also a challenge. Lack of knowledge about the load capacity of the roof will prevent the installation of photovoltaics and will contribute to the loss of benefits associated with it. Installing a PV system on a roof that is not prepared for such a weight will damage the building. This is prevented by technical expertise and constant monitoring of the roof load.
Who we are?
We offer simple solutions to complex problems. We passionately create modern and proprietary tools that increase safety level, optimize costs and ensure the comfort of using flat roofs.
It was then that the surveyor, programmer, and the civil engineer combined the common idea of creating a system supporting the maintenance of large-scale buildings.
Find out that this idea was just the beginning of something much, much bigger.
The Sense S-One is an excellent example of the use of modern technologies in terms of building management, especially in the case of roof structure inspection. Constant monitoring of the roof structure, recording of variables, as well as their analysis – including the forecasted weather – will not only optimize the costs resulting from the maintenance of the facility but also react in advance to changing conditions.
I have extensive experience in building maintenance. I am sure of this construction, but the Smart Roof Platform can inform me about the necessary service action in advance. And this is its big advantage.
We met Sense Monitoring during the Industrial Innovation Day. We were intrigued by their modern approach to roof problems. We decided very quickly that this system needs to be deployed in our new hall.
We have been working with several start-ups in the hardware industry. However, no one has come to us before with a solution that may be useful in the everyday use of buildings. We believe that Sense Monitoring will become our client, not just a service provider.
Sense Monitoring stood up to the challenge of installing the Smart Roof Platform with sensors in just a few hours. I am very pleased with the cooperation and I honestly recommend it.
Every company with a dispersed network of buildings struggles with the control of current costs – so we were looking for a solution that would allow us to keep track of the situation on the roofs of our stores while being at the headquarters in Warsaw. The Sense S-One system created by Sense Monitoring exceeded our expectations because, in addition to improving safety, we also saved on snow removal and repairs of the roof membrane.
In the beginning, we implemented the Sense S-One system in the WER Bydgoszcz building with a roof area of 17,000 m2. The installation went smoothly at an express pace, which allowed for its launch in the winter season. In the future, we plan to successively equip next logistic buildings of Poczta Polska, thanks to which flat roof risk management will be possible from the headquarters in Warsaw.
The Sense S-One system has been installed in our new hall of the Silesian Logistics Center in Sosnowiec. Thanks to the intelligent application, we have up-to-date knowledge about the reaction of the roof structure to various atmospheric phenomena. It is irreplaceable in our daily work because it supports the management of the facility. A thing worth recommending to others.
Imagine that technology monitors your building
24h / 365 days a year. You don’t have to worry about leaving work or going on vacation – Smart Roof Platform will take care of your building security.
Think about it today, and enjoy the tranquility in a few days.
