About iRed

Since 2002, iRed has been at the forefront of industry, providing specialist thermographic and remote sensing services, consultancy, training and equipment across the UK and worldwide.

Our passionate team of accredited thermographers has worked with a variety of clients within domestic, commercial, industrial and scientific industries, giving us decades of experience and expertise. Using the latest imaging technology and techniques, we deliver a wide range of services including condition monitoring, thermographic inspections, reliability engineering support, mould & damp detection, electro-mechanical surveys, continuity of insulation, specialist investigations and BREEAM surveys.

iRed is proud to have recently been granted ‘Permissions for Aerial Work’ by the Civil Aviation Authority (id. 2082), allowing us to utilise Unmanned Aerial Systems (Drones) to provide new inspection and maintenance services using multi-spectral and point-cloud technology.

Our training division, The iRed Academy, is an ABBE approved assessment centre, PCN authorised qualifying body (as accredited by BINDT), CAA approved National Qualified Entity and UKTA approved training centre. In addition to this, we are a registered ELCAS provider, Constructionline supplier and operate a Quality Management System in accordance with BS EN ISO 9001:2008.


It is our philosophy to ensure that iRed remains at the forefront of industry by developing new and effective inspection techniques, whilst continuing to produce the highest standard of thermographic survey available. We can then consistently continue to invest and develop our accredited training courses with the techniques we develop out in the field.


iRed are proud to maintain a number of accreditations and certifications with national and global organisations.
