Tinytag data loggers are being used by a quality manufacturer to monitor hardwood floor humidity and temperature, to determine whether the stated terms and conditions for the flooring have been maintained.
The specialist bespoke hardwood floor company is using Tinytags
to ensure its high quality timber products are installed and stored
in the correct conditions. The company manufactures, installs and
finishes bespoke hardwood engineered timber floors, joinery and
stairs for domestic, commercial and institutional use.

temperature and relative humidity loggers are used to monitor
the conditions both on site and in the company's workshop. All the
flooring is preconditioned in the workshop to a certain moisture
content. If it is taken to site where the humidity is too high, it
will take on too much moisture and the flooring will warp. After
completion, if there are situations where the floor is cupping or
bowing, the recorded data from the loggers will show whether
conditions were too humid. In this way it can be determined whether
the site conditions were outside the stated terms and conditions
for the flooring.
The environment is also monitored inside the company's own
workshop, to determine that other materials are not stored outside
their recommended temperature range.
Their Assistant Project Manager comments, "We first came across
Tinytags whilst working at a national museum in London. The main
contractor had a few located in each gallery, and after seeing the
graphs they produced we thought it would be a good idea to get a
few of our own to monitor future sites. They are incredibly easy to
use and set up, and they are also strong enough to cope with all
your typical building site has to throw at them, recording accurate
results even when caked in dust and paint spatter!"
