Sweating Slab Syndrome (SSS) is a dangerous condition that plagues many warehouses and compromises worker safety and causes product degradation.
SSS develops inside a building with a concrete slab floor when atmospheric conditions in the building begin to match those outside. As this happens, moisture migrates to the coldest point. If it’s a dew point, it’s going to condense on whatever material is there or the slab, which is typically going to be your coldest point. Moisture plus workers and heavy equipment are a poor match, leading to potentially serious accidents.
