Kryton International Adds Wireless Real-Time Concrete Monitoring To Its Smart Concrete®

 

 

Kryton International Inc., a world leader in innovative concrete technology, announced that the company has acquired a 30 per cent interest in Sensohive Technologies ApS of Odense, Denmark. The acquisition makes Kryton, Sensohive’s largest shareholder. Kryton will also be the exclusive North American distributor of Sensohive’s award-winning Maturix™ technology, which uses advanced sensors and software enabling contractors and engineers to wirelessly monitor the concrete hardening process in real time from virtually any internet-connected device.

“Sensohive’s Maturix™ technology represents a significant leap forward in construction efficiency and productivity,” said Kari Yuers, Kryton’s President and CEO. “The ability to monitor concrete strength in real time from remote locations helps expedite faster construction schedules, optimizing efficiencies, reducing costs and improving safety.” Yuers added, “This acquisition is consistent with Kryton’s goal of helping contractors build faster and smarter through innovation. It’s also an important addition to our Smart Concrete® brand.”

Real-time monitoring of structures is an evolving field in the construction industry made possible through the rapidly expanding Internet of Things (IoT) – the interconnected digital network allowing everyday objects to be embedded with electronics collecting and sharing data. With the advent of smart buildings and smart cities, planners, designers and engineers are now taking an evidence-based approach to urban design and construction, which this type of technology can provide. “Smart buildings are not going to be built without smart sensors,” highlights Yuers. “And any major structure or project being built today starts with concrete.”
