Questions & Answers

Can this scan a lath and plaster wall?

Asked by robin August 27, 2020
1
Answer

Most people have success scanning through lath and plaster, but we don't guarantee it. The reason we don't guarantee it is because the thickness and the consistency of the plaster can vary greatly depending on the hand that laid it. With 8 sensors identifying the change in density, the T9 is a very accurate unit, even through textured surfaces.

Will this find joists under carpet?

Asked by Zk April 28, 2020
1
Answer

Not likely do to the signal not being able to pass thru the carpet and the padding. It diffuses too much of the signal. Mine worked thru hardwood to find joists though.

Will it find studs behind tiled shower walls?

Asked by Vin August 26, 2019
1
Answer

Mine was lighting up all over the wall in no particular pattern so I don't think it is suitable for that task.

will it detect studs behind fiberglass shower stall?

Asked by SGN June 24, 2019
1
Answer

No. It will not the signal pass thru very dense or very hard reflective surfaces. Mine did work thru hardwood floor to find floor joists though.

Will it detect wire?

Asked by Nina December 8, 2018
1
Answer

The ProSensor T9 will identify any change in density, but it will not identify what the hidden object is. As a way of verifying what the hidden object is, once you get a positive reading, with the button pressed, scan the unit up and down the wall. Studs will run vertically up and down the wall whereas wires and conduit will branch off so if the illuminated LEDs turn off, you will know the hidden object is not a stud.

I needed a stud finder to get through two 5/8” thick drywall layers in our condo ceiling as my cheap stud finder wouldn’t detect anything. The Franklin worked well to locate the ceiling joists and the lights helped to find the center.

I decided on this sensor to augment / replace another stud sensor which has limitations. So far the T9 does not disappoint. The edge and center sensors provide a far better "picture" of what is inside the wall which enables me to make more of the right decisions and avoid issues. Highly recommended.
