FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS IN HIGH PERFORMANCE ROOF COATINGS SYSTEMS

 

 

 

 

Thermal imaging or thermography has come a long way in recent years. It is now so advanced it can solve issues that only a few years ago were considered troublesome.

You can see from the picture on the right the thermal imager has detected water ingress or excessive moisture below the felt on this commercial flat roof. Thermal imaging is an extremely effective solution in immediately detecting visualising and recording temperature differences, loss and anomalies.

 

With the right technique thermal imaging can determine the point of entry and in this case it has found the leak was coming from the adjoining parapet wall.

 

Thermal imaging is a cost effective solution when dealing with large flat roof areas, it will save a great deal of time searching for the leak manually and in turn solve the problem much earlier.

 

 

 

 

 

The machine used in this thermal imaging survey was the Flir B360 and detected immence heat loss from the exterior walls and shows possibly a brickwork defect at the front left elevation.

 

It also shows insulation between windows but little or no insulation to the loft space, resulting in much heat loss from the main roof.

 

 

WITH RISING ENERGY PRICES THERE'S NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO IMPROVE THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF YOUR HOME

 

The machine used in this thermal imaging survey was the Flir B360 and detected the following: great heat loss from the lounge windows, moderate to high heat loss from the exterior walls.

 

It shows the loft space to be insulated but also shows great heat loss from the roof top apex.

Indicates air loss from door and window seals.
