‘Revolutionary’ ultrasonic guttering monitoring technology and drainage management system launched for facilities managers

Gutter and roof refurbishment systems expert Sharmans has launched an ultrasonic gutter monitoring technology and drainage management system to help facilities managers prevent the costly damage caused by roof leaks.

RoofCare is a new easy-to-install system which analyses drainage performance and generates alerts to highlight capacity issues. The system also helps the planning of evidence-based gutter and roof fabric maintenance programmes.

A video showing how the system works can be viewed here.

According to the Association of British Insurers in 2019, around 100,000 commercial buildings in the UK suffer roof leaks every year creating an annual cost to businesses of more than £800m.

Sharmans is the UK’s leading supplier of gutter and roof refurbishment systems and has been developing RoofCare for the past four years to deliver a new approach to gutter monitoring.

RoofCare’s innovative detector system provides early warning of imminent water ingression and alerts facilities managers and maintenance teams to potentially take action.

The software predicts the need for gutter cleans and helps to ensure that cleaning takes place at the right time.

Users of the system can view the performance of any of their roofs, utilising RoofCare on mobile devices or desktop computers 24 hours a day.

RoofCare’s Andrea Holbrook said: “Whether facilities managers employ a planned predictive maintenance regime or reactive strategy, our RoofCare system significantly enhances either approach.

“Our revolutionary system follows a four-stage process – analyse, diagnose, alert and plan – which provides protection across an entire roof portfolio and enables quick and easy monitoring.”

RoofCare is available on a flexible subscription basis which is either owner operated or provided by one of Sharmans’ expert contractors.

It can also be integrated into existing computer-aided facilities management (CAFM) software or can function as a standalone system.
