Standard Inclinometer Casing

Standard Inclinometer Casing is specially designed for inclinometer test systems and is typically installed in boreholes. However, its versatility renders it suitable for use in landfills, cast to concrete or attached to structures.

The Standard Inclinometer Casing is a specially manufactured ABS extrusion with precise keyways formed at 90° to each other. Thisallows the accurate orientation of inclinometer probes or In-Place Inclinometer Sensors (IPIs). The casing is jointed using standard or telescoping couplings.

Product Features
  • Deep, tight groove profile ensures accurate data
  • Available in 70mm and 85mm outer diameters
  • Manufactured from virgin ABS
Product Benefits
  • Cost effective
  • Reduced wastage: casing can be cut and joined at any point along its length
  • Can be used in conjunction with magnetic extensometers to form a combined inclinometer/extensometer



You can use Standard Inclinometer Casing in boreholes; embed it into fill material, cast it into concrete or attach it to structures. The casing moves with the ground, material or structural movement and provides inclination information over an extended period of time.

Standard casing is available in both 70mm and 85mm outside diameters and is suitable for most construction and civil engineering projects.



Inclinometer systems are used to measure lateral movement in the ground or in a structure. They are useful for determining the depth, direction, magnitude, and also rate of movement. For example, they can be used to ascertain the stability of retaining walls by measuring bending and rotation in the retaining wall. They can also reveal ground movement that could affect other buildings. Inclinometer systems can also be used to detect movement in the downstream and upstream side of dams and to define shear zones in the foundations of concrete faced dams. Measurements of recorded movement are used to check that the deflections are within the design assumptions. Continue monitoring to establish any long term effects after works have finished. Inclinometer casing is used in boreholes, embedded in fill material, cast into concrete or attached to structures for the following typical applications:

  • Determining shear and slip zones
  • Monitoring diaphragm or sheet pile walls
  • Monitoring bending in piles
  • Verifying design assumptions and finite element analysis
  • Long term monitoring purposes
  • Monitoring dams
  • Detecting and recording ground movement due to tunnelling operations
  • Monitoring retaining walls
