BlockWallScanIR™ is a service line which provides Block Wall Surveys for Commercial, Industrial, Institutional and Residential buildings which contain Concrete Masonry Unit (CMU) Walls. BlockWallScanIR ™ is a network of infrared thermographers who have been trained specifically in the application of Thermography to CMU Wall structures.
A BlockWallScanIR™ Survey provides customers with a simple means of quality control which can save thousands of dollars, eliminating inefficient construction of CMU Walls. Sandhills Thermal Imaging announces the opening of the newest service area in the BlockWallScanIR™ Network which provides infrared surveys of CMU walls. Sandhills Thermal Imaging is now an authorized service provider of BLOCKWALLSCANIR™ in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Sandhills Thermal Imaging (http://www.sandhillsthermalimaging.com) is owned and operated by Brad Gilbertson. The company is based out of Fayetteville, North Carolina and mainly provides service to the Sandhills region of the state. However, their thermographers can travel to any location where service is needed. The company is a full-service thermography company capable of providing any infrared imaging a client may need. The company uses state-of-the-art FLIR™ infrared equipment to produce photographic-quality reports that are easy to read and understand by anyone picking up the report. The thermographers at Sandhills Thermal Imaging have been trained specifically in the application of CMU Wall Thermography. “Thermal imaging is beneficial to everyone involved in a building project,” stated Mr. Gilbertson. “Infrared thermography ensures the owners receive the building they ordered, it verifies the building meets the design specifications of the engineers/architects, and it allows the General Contractor to check and maintain quality assurance of the sub-contractors. BLOCKWALLSCANIR™ is definitely an asset for building owners in our market”, Mr. Gilbertson stated.
The BlockWallScanIR™ service is owned by United Infrared, Inc. (UI), a North Carolina Corporation which provides applications-specific resource systems for contractors of infrared thermographic services. UI is owned by Greg Stockton and Peter Hopkins and was created to help contractors add infrared technologies to their business.
“All of our BlockWallScanIR™ members are experienced building technicians and Certified Infrared Thermographers who have been trained in infrared thermography of masonry structures.” states Greg Stockton. “Two benefits arise from having a BlockWallScanIR™ infrared test performed on your newly constructed CMU walls. First, a documented record of the grouted cells and other structural components (in-situ) is created. Secondly, when and if deficiencies are found, a report can be generated so that corrections can be made with surgical precision,” he concludes.
“The most unique aspect of this service is that we are a nationwide network of local infrared contractors, which is what enables us to provide affordable, high-quality surveys for our customers. This is especially valuable for customers with multiple locations, who can be assured of receiving the same level of service in all of their locations,” says Peter Hopkins.
