The leading experts in infrared thermography
iRed is the UK’s leading thermal imaging consultancy and training centre.
In operation before thermal imaging had been accepted as a mainstream inspection tool, iRed has always used the latest techniques, technologies and industry practices to deliver thermal analysis solutions for a variety of clients within commercial, industrial and scientific industries.
iRed was originally founded by Ray Faulkner in 2002. Since then, the company has worked on over 200,000 projects for more than 400 clients including local authorities, public bodies and global brands. Ray served for many years as Vice-Chair of the UK Thermography Authority (UKTA) drafting their constitution, promoting the need for certified training and Chairing the Building Thermography specialist group with an emphasis on developing sustainable inspection techniques. Ray currently sits on the BINDT Working Group that oversees the PCN certification scheme and the BSI working group for ISO Standards involving thermography.
Working closely with leading educational institutions including the University of Portsmouth and Coleg Cambria, iRed has been able to pioneer new techniques and practices for industry. This has led to iRed being accredited by both the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) and the Awarding Body of the Built Environment (ABBE) to deliver certified training in infrared thermography.
After becoming the first UK company to offer aerial thermal imaging in 2012, the team has rapidly expanded into the research and development of remote sensing inspections, offering a range of specialist aerial surveys and training courses tailored towards commercial drone operators.
Valuing long-term partnerships, iRed are always looking for opportunities to help promote the field of infrared thermography and to encourage best-practice within industry.
