Deflection measurement 

How to measure the geometric proximity points and the deflection by using solutions proposed by FLOD.

The safety of goods and people in the vicinity of structures is a major issue for utility companies. There must be a respect of the distances from the ground and obstacles in accordance with the application of the regulations in order to avoid any problems.


There is a geometrical proximity as soon as the theoretical minimum distance is greater than the distance required by the defined rules.


The distances to be respected may concern an overhang or a lateral obstacle depending on the type of obstacle.
This requirement defines the notion of geometric proximity point or PPG.
