ZORN ZFG 3000 GPS, the latest in light weight Deflectometer (LWD) testing technology from Germany.
The most used method of testing base compaction has been nuclear density testing (Backscatter).
Nuclear density testing is expensive, needs to be outsourced and does not work for open-graded base (permeable).
The ZORN provides quick & easy testing that anyone can do, no special certification is required to operate the unit.
Each area of testing takes less than 2 minutes and all the data (including exact GPS location) is recorded on an SD card with an immediate print out.
The enclosed case protects the unit and printouts from the elements.
The ZORN ZFG 3000 GPS confirms to ASTM 2835-11 Standard Test Method for Measuring Deflections using a Portable Impulse Plate Load Test Device.
Whether you installed the base yourself or it was done by others, you need to confirm with confidence that you can proceed.
Once you install the pavers you have implied your acceptance of the base compaction.
The ZORN will let you know the base is ready or if problems need to be addressed.
This testing device is needed by every commercial hardscape contractor.
*Annual recertification of this testing unit is available in Virginia.
