When is the best time to use a Thermal Infrared camera for conducting roof inspections?
UAVs or Drone’s as they are known have the ability to create great aerial photography and videography which has been understood for some times, however, were you aware that they can also be fitted with thermal infrared cameras to add a whole new dimension to property inspections? Thermal imaging cameras provide a non-contact temperature measurement across areas that are hard to access or see from a ground.
The health and safety risks associated with working at height are minimised when using drone technology, as are the risks of causing damage to the structure through the inspection process itself. With UAVs carrying thermal imaging cameras, temperature data is captured in real-time as well as recorded both quickly and accurately with the resulting heat map presented as colour images in both a qualitative and quantitative reporting format. Image analysis and reporting completed by a thermographer appropriately trained and certified, can identify potential fault areas that would have remained hidden to the human eye until serious damage had occurred.
Key Areas to Use a Thermal Drone
Inspection are Non-Destructive
Domestic Solar Photovoltaic Panel Inspections
Commercial Solar Farm Maintenance Inspection
Flat Roof Surface Failures
Flat Roof Water Ingress and Leaks
New Electrical Installations
Maintenance of Electrical Installations
Building Insulation Performance
New Builds Insulation Installtion Faults
Underground water Leaks
Underground Heating Pipes
Landfil Site Underground Fire Detection
In all cases thermal imaging solutions when deployed from a UAV drone, offers a non-destructive, simple, and cost effectively solution to getting infrared analysis from hard to reach and difficult to see places.
