SATIR building thermal imaging cameras

Did you know that thermal imaging cameras can be used in the building industry? Learn about the benefits of building thermal imaging cameras.

Suitable building thermal imaging cameras

SATIR has a number of building thermal imaging cameras that cover a wide range of budgets, depending on the amount of detail needed for a building thermal imaging survey. Building thermal imaging cameras are becoming increasingly popular among those who work in the building and construction industry. This is due to a number of reasons such as awareness of the technology and the benefits of using such technology, checking the quality of house construction, checking the windows have been properly installed and windows fit door frames correctly to prevent heat escaping from inside a building. There are a wide range of building thermal imaging cameras available and SATIR is a leading provider of thermal imaging cameras for the past 13 years. They provide an excellent technical support team and offer 2 years product warranty. The best IR resolution of a building thermal imaging camera is 384x288 and currently SATIR have 3 models which feature this resolution. They are the i-384,D300 and the Hotfind-S.

The SATIR i-384 is from SATIR newsest range of industrial cameras, the I-Series. The i-384 has the minimum recommended IR detector of 384x288, making it an ideal building thermal imaging camera. It also comes with an Android App which allows a the surveyor to going into enclosed areas such as a attic while the person on the landing can view on the App what the thermal camera is scanning. To learn more visit the I-Series product page.

The SATIR D300 is part of the D-Series another range of cameras ideal as a building thermal imaging camera. The D300 has a reversible flip screen which is different from the i-384 fixed screen which may suit some end-users better. It has a motorised lens To learn more visit the D300 Product Page .

The SATIR Hotfind-S is SATIR oldest model of building thermal imaging cameras It has been a favour thermal imaging camera from those who work in the building industry to those who work in the energy industry. We have many repeat orders of this camera over the years as it is a much loved thermal imaging camera. To learn more visit the Hotfind-S Product Page .

Benefits of building thermal imaging cameras

Preventative maintenance: Thermal imaging Cameras are ideal for surveying old building that are protected buildings. Often protected buildings will need to be repaired. Thermal imaging cameras are ideal for carrying out preventative maintenance to ensure any issues are detected on a routine basis and therefore keeping costs to a minimum as it ensures any issues are identified before issues become larger and more difficult to maintain.

Non-Destructive: Thermal Imaging cameras are able to see problems not visible to the human eye and using the skill of the thermographe, they are able to locate areas of concern without costly destructive methods

Time Management: Thermal imaging cameras are both ideal for preventive maintenance and non destructive testing which both save the facility and end client time and of course money

What can thermal imaging cameras detect?

Roof Survey using building thermal imaging cameras

Building thermal imaging cameras can be used for roof surveying, particularly for flat roofs which are often warehouses, office and apartment blocks. Water ingress into the roof area can be highlighted due to the specific heat capacity of the water. The correct conditions are required to conduct the survey, but the results are very effective.

Building Dampness detected with building thermal imaging cameras

Detecting damp walls in buildings is another application of building thermal imaging cameras. It is important to detect the cause and the start of any dampness in building walls as this could case other issues such as mould which can have serious health hazards if not detected early. The image above clearly shows the start of a dampness problem and needs to looked at closely to see where and how the dampness is occuring. 

The two listed applications are not the only applications that building thermal imaging cameras are useful, to learn more please fill out our contact form and a member of the team can discuss further applications for building thermal imaging cameras.
