Woodpecker wood test hammer

Knowing the state of conservation of wooden elements is extremely important when performing surveys for restoration or structural rehabilitation of historical buildings and monu­ments. The Woodpecker is an accessory for a N type concrete test hammer, to which a tempered steel needle (stiffness 60 HRC) is added.

The needle is 2.5 mm in diameter and 50 mm in length, with a truncated cone tip and 35° angle of inclination at the end. The Woodpecker is a product entirely made in Italy.

The need to develop a non-destructive technique which allows understanding of the state of preservation of a wooden element and its residual mechanical properties (parameters of resistance and deformability) has given rise to the need to develop a useful and manageable tool that can provide reliable information regarding material quality. The WoodPecker is an accessory for a N type concrete test hammer, to which a tempered steel needle (stiffness 60 HRC) is added. The needle is 2.5 mm in diameter and 50 mm in length, with a truncated cone tip and 35° angle of inclination at the end. The test hammer is compact and resistant, but also easy to handle. Its weight (about 1100 gr) allows immediate use on the materials already on site. The WoodPecker is a product entirely made in Italy.
