Prevent Costly Electrical & Mechanical Malfunctions With Infrared Electrical Inspections

We Offer Infrared Electrical Inspections Across New York City (NYC) & the Tri-State Area

Electrical and mechanical malfunctions are one of the leading causes of commercial building fires.

Total Fire Protection’s Infrared Electrical Inspection services safeguard against the hazards of electrical and mechanical malfunctions by identifying the need for repair or replacement of affected equipment before equipment failure or fire occurs.
“One of the first steps when implementing an electrical Preventative Maintenance Program is to perform a complete Infrared Thermographic Survey of all electrical equipment. This type of survey should also be performed on a periodic basis – usually once a year.” Traveler’s Insurance Co.

How It Works

Using thermal imaging, an infrared electrical inspection detects and documents potentially dangerous hot spots and anomalies in energized electrical components and panels. Periodic infrared scans of electrical, mechanical and steam system components are often mandated by insurance companies and are recommended as part of a Preventive and Predictive Maintenance program.
