Shaun Katz with Detec Systems will be discussing Electronic Leak Detection. His presentation will cover Electronic Leak Detection (ELD) testing methods used for quality assurance of roofing and waterproofing membranes. This includes principles outlines in the ASTM Standard Guide D7877 and ASTM Standard Practice D8231 and will be able to identify which assemblies are compatible with electronic testing and active monitoring.

Shaun Katz has been the Product Line Manager at Detec Systems for 7 years and has over 20 years experience in customer service, sales and business administration. Shaun has assisted contractors, architects, consultants, manufacturers, facility managers, and building owners with forensic leak investigation, as well as leak detection in new construction. He has performed presentations and demonstrated ELD throughout the United States and Canada, and recently won the 2020 Presenter of the Year Award from the Chicago chapter of IIBEC. His goal is to provide a basic understanding of Electronic Leak Detection to assist design teams with ensuring valid and conclusive ELD.

This presentation is approved for 1 hour of AIA continuing education credits.
