Frequently Asked Questions
Q: WHAT IS THERMAL IMAGING?
A: Thermal Imaging (infrared technology) is the collection and analysis of radiated Electromagnetic energy in the infrared portion of the electromagnetic Spectrum using a thermal infrared imaging device different levels of this Radiated energy from the scene viewed, are displayed as different colors on a Video monitor
The first Law of Infrared Thermography
INFRARED INSTRUMENTS SEE INFRARED RADIATION From the 1st 1/1000 of an inch of the Surface of most Solids and Liquids.
Therefore: Thermal Imaging Cameras do not Measure or See Temperature!
They do not See through Most Solids or Liquids.
Q:IS THERMAL IMAGING AN X- RAY MACHINE?
A: No it is not an x-ray machine
Q: IS THERMAL IMAGING NIGHT VISION?
A: No it is not night vision
Q: CAN THERMAL IMAGING CAMERAS FIND TERMITES?
A: Yes. Thermal infra red cameras pick up radiated energy that termites produce giving the Thermographer a thermal differential pattern, and therefore then must be analysed or investigated further.
Q: CAN THERMAL IMAGING SEE THROUGH WALLS AND CONCRETE?
A: Thermal cameras cannot see through anything-infrared instruments see infrared radiation from the 1 st 1/1000 of an inch of the surface of most solids And Liquids
Q: CAN THERMAL IMAGING CAMERAS FIND DAMAGE TO TIMBER STRUCTURES?
A: Thermal-imaging devises cannot find timber damage in buildings and or structures
Q: IS THERE AN AUSTRALIAN STANDARD FOR THERMAL IMAGING?
A: Yes ISO 20807-2004 (International Standard) for Non Destructive Testing Qualification and Certification of Personnel for the Pest Industry.
Q: DO YOU NEED TO BE QUAILIFIED TO USE THERMAL IMAGING CAMERAS IN THE PEST INDUSTRY?
A: Yes level 1 for pest Thermography
Q: DO YOU NEED TO PROVIDE A WRITTERN THERMAL REPORT?
A: Yes a written report is required under ISO 20807-2004 & AS 4349.3
Q: WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE THERMAL IMAGING TECHNOLOGY OVER OTHER TECHNIQUES?
A: Thermal Imaging Cameras are tools of this trade. It is a non-invasive, non-intrusive and non-destructive form of technology. Thermal Imaging is the best form of detection in the pest industry. Thermal Imaging gives qualified inspectors the latest in technology and gives you the HOME OWNER more peace of mind.
Q: WHAT DO WE ACTUALLY INSPECT?
A: We complete all inspections in accordance with AUSTRALIAN STANDARDS 4349.3-1998 & 3660.2-2001. And thermal reports as per ISO 20807-2004.
All inspections are carried out to detect and report on the presence of Termites, Wood Decay, Borers and other pests.
All reports are provided with full recommendations, to help reduce the risk of conducive areas and to prevent further pest attacks and to Pest Control Code of Practice Thermography
Q: IS THERE A INSURANCE POLICY AGAINST TERMITE ATTACK!
A: Yes there is Supplied by Rapid Solutions called TimberSecure Termite Insurance policy covering you for up to $100 000 provided a current and up to date treatment is in place (conditions apply). For a full 12 months, starting when we complete your inspection,
