NOAH CONSTRUCTION LEAK DETECTION
Radius Security’s Noah Construction water leak detection and control system protects construction projects from costly water damage.
Stay on Schedule
Repairing water damage uses up valuable time. Detect leaks immediately to keep your building on track for occupancy
Avoid Supply Chain Headaches
Waiting for back-ordered replacement materials means longer delays at the critical stage – just prior to occupancy.
Reduce Insurance Costs
Water damage accounts for half of all commercial insurance claims in Canada and costs three times as much as other claims.*

Water is the new fire when it comes to insurance claims. A history of claims can make it difficult and--with high deductibles and increased premiums--expensive to secure insurance coverage for future projects. Reduce your insurance costs by preventing water damage.

On a Friday night, one month before completion, a faulty water hammer suppressor in a dishwasher on the top floor of a 17-storey high-rise caused a steady water leak from a ½” line. By Monday morning, the undetected leak had reached the ground-floor lobby. A security guard was on duty during the leak, including patrolling the halls and stairwells but did not notice it. Millwork, ceilings, walls and floors had to be replaced throughout the building.
Delay: three months. Total cost: more than $10 million. Amount covered by insurance: only $1 million.
After this incident, the client asked Radius to design a system to detect a leak as small as 1 gallon per minute—even while the suites are still under construction. We developed Noah Construction water leak detection and control to save developers and general contractors from such disastrous losses and delays.
If there is a leak, Noah knows. And so will you.
Water Damage Prevention During Construction
A building under construction should have no water flow after hours. Noah detects any water flow and controls the leak right away. Here’s how it works:
Why Choose Noah for Water Risk Mitigation?
Noah leak detection installations work better for water risk mitigation than security guards or residential DIY leak detection systems. In a project with non-functioning elevators, a security guard cannot catch leaks with visual inspections unless they are checking every locked suite.
Using a residential water leak detection system with automatic control of the main water shutoff in a building under construction will fail because such systems were not designed for construction sites.
False alarms. Construction activity may falsely trigger residential leak detection installations and shut off water. Inevitably, trades on site will tamper and disconnect they system. Then fail to reconnect it.
Unpredictable usage. Many different trades are on site at all hours, making automated leak detection based on usage patterns impossible.
24/7 monitoring. Without round-the-clock monitoring, a residential system cannot mitigate a water leak during construction. So why install such a system and hope it will work?
Noah and Radius Security. Our trained operators can interpret water usage based on after-hours construction activity and a temporary schedule notification for any given day. We can remotely shut off the water if and only if the building is unoccupied.
Patented water purge. Noah drains any water stored in the riser above the pipe break so it does not continue to leak.
Timing is everything. Choose Noah water flow detection to stop any leak immediately.
