Inclinometers are one of our key components in measuring sub-surface movements during excavation. With installation of inclinometers, engineers are better able to determine if deflections are within design limits, that struts and anchors are performing as expected, and if adjacent buildings are unaffected by ground movements. Inclinometers are also excellent tell-tales for measuring movements in embankments, dams and foundations.

Typically, inclinometer casings are permanently affixed to a soldier pile, or in a borehole, which passes through the suspected zones of movement; the toe of the casing is extended beyond the zone of influence to ensure stability at the base.
