Product details

Infrared Services
– Thermography: While your facility is in full operation, we can document problem areas in your electrical and mechanical equipment with infrared imaging equipment.
– Roofing inspection: Infrared testing of roofing systems can locate water damaged areas and identify emerging problems before they become costly. A quick, accurate and nondestructive thermographic inspection may also eliminate unnecessary roof replacement.

Within two business days of the inspection, we send you a report of our recommended corrective actions, including computer-enhanced photos of problem areas. We also meet with you to review and discuss our findings.

Ultrasonic Inspections
We use high pitch frequencies to check for pressure and vacuum leaks, electrical emissions, bearing failure, motor failure, underground leaks, steam traps and more.


Natural Catastrophe Analysis
Windstorm (hurricanes/tornadoes): We analyze your facilities and their surroundings and help you prevent damage and develop pre-emergency plans. We can also collect secondary modifiers which are critical for RMS modeling and help you better understand your exposures.
Earthquake: We can help you determine the potential impact of seismic events, improve emergency preparedness and develop a continuity plan.
Flood: Using flood maps and zones identified by government agencies, we help identify facilities that may be prone to flooding, provide potential loss estimates and assist in the facilities planning to mitigate losses and continue operations.
Other natural hazards: We can help you review other natural hazards like landslides, subsidence (sinkholes), unstable soils, freezing, arctic freezing, volcanism and excessive roof loads due to weather-related incidents.

Loss Investigations
We can help determine the root causes of a loss and assist you in creating a strategy to help prevent similar losses in the future.

Impairment Management
We offer 24-hour loss prevention advice to minimize risks when fire protection or surveillance systems are taken out of service for maintenance, testing, replacement or any other reason.

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Drawings
We can create drawings of the construction and protection features of your facilities.

Recommendation Cost Benefit Analysis
We can help you estimate the loss and completion costs for each recommendation.

Photographic Recommendations
We can provide photos to document the condition referenced by each recommendation to help you evaluate potential solutions.

Business Impact Analysis
Our engineers can help identify critical equipment and processes in your facilities that may affect your ability to deliver products and services to the market. We can help develop business continuity plans for local sites or for your entire organization.

Commodity and Full Scale Fire Testing at UL
Through our relationship with UL, we can help you develop and execute plans for a full scale fire test to determine whether or not your existing fire protection is adequate. This testing has saved our customers millions of dollars and helped justify major capital improvement projects.

We include access to online documentation and related analytical reports through MyAnalysis with all of our services.
