More info

SHSEMM138 from Shimana Instruments Canada  is the perfect instrument to check the moisture content in drywalls, wood and other building materials with virtually no surface damage thanks to the pinless moisture sensor. High frequency sensing technology allows the Shimana SHSEMM138 to take non-invasive moisture measurements.

The non-destructive moisture sensor of SHSEMM138 runs smoothly over the surface being tested without scratching or penetrating the surface User programmable alarms alert the user if moisture measurements exceed alarm set-points. The SHSEMM138 measures relative moisture of various building material including wood, particle board, carpeting, and ceiling tiles using non-invasive Pinless Technology.

In Canada you can buy the Shimana SHSEMM138 moisture meter for building materials from our We ship most of the orders same day, from our Brampton, ONtario warehouse. Local pick-up for the GTA (Toronto, Brampton, Missisauga, Oakville) is free, just give us a call to have the instrument checked and ready! Other measuring instruments from Shimana are available on this manufacturer page.

SHSEMM138 is the perfect hand held tool to check the humidity in building materials. This is a non-destructive, non-invasive, pinless moisture meter for building materials, walls, drywalls, wood, gypsum, cement, ceilings and floors. We do, however, carry a wide range of moisture meters in Canada for other type of materials like: wood moisture meter, grain moisture meter or pin-and-search moisture meter for building materials.
