THERMOGRAPHY

Our qualified and licenced Thermographer is experienced in assessing the fabric of a building and equipment. We use a thermal imaging camera as a non-destructive method of investigating issues that may lie below the surface of a wall or ceiling or within equipment. We initially used this new technology to help identify where electrical equipment was overheating to prevent fires and to identify poor fire stopping in buildings but the uses are vast.


When undertaking surveys, we use both qualitative and quantitative approaches to highlight thermal anomalies and assess the performance of a building or equipment. Our survey reports show a visual picture so temperatures over a predetermined area can be compared. It is also capable of catching moving targets in real time. Thermal imaging as a non-contact method can be used to measure or observe areas that are inaccessible or hazardous.


We use our thermal imaging camera alongside additional specialist equipment such as damp meters and data loggers. This allows us to produce a wide variety of accurate reports to highlight issues such as:


  • Identifying damp.
  • Locating leaks in roofs.
  • Identifying blocked or leaking pipes.
  • Locating cracks in buildings.
  • Identifying deficiencies in fire stopping.
  • Mapping heat loss through air flow.
  • Identifying deficient double glazing.
  • Identifying thermal bridging.
  • Ensuring insulation continuity.
  • Identifying faulty or deteriorating, electrical

       components prior to failure or a fire.

  • Finding defects in shafts, ducting and pipes.


Undertaking the above surveys often prevents many hours / days of time lost to tradesmen trying to identify issues by traditional means. We can identify issues early on, this allows for the quick application of a solution before any serious issues develop.


We do not carry out medical or vetinary thermography. We recognise that there are limitations to thermographic methods. Please feel free to call us to discuss your requirements so that we may review the viability of thermography for individual applications.
