TClarke thermal screening technology helps sites and offices get back to work

7/5/20: Three weeks ago, TClarke was first to introduce thermal imaging cameras to help NHS clients screen staff temperature for signs of fever. Now it is rolling the technology out for its own project sites and offices – and offering the technology to others.

In mid April, TClarke supplied the new HIKVision thermal fever scanning cameras to the NHS, with seven units being deployed to Treliske hospital in Truro. The cameras scan body temperature and detect fever, which has major value for healthcare workers.

Now, TClarke is rolling out the same technology for its offices and projects as the business gets back to work.

Cameras read temperature of anyone entering a site or building

These cameras represent a fantastic breakthrough in CCTV technology and can add an additional layer of safety to any site by reading the temperature of everyone entering a building.

The thermal fever scanning cameras work by measuring radiation emitted from people and converting it, with a high degree of accuracy into a visual indication of body temperature. This means the new cameras can help to detect elevated body temperature, which indicates presence of a fever — one of the key symptoms of Covid-19.

Cameras avoid unnecessary physical contact

The cameras can work from about one metre away, meaning that no unnecessary physical contact is needed to screen people entering an office or site. Anyone who appears to have a higher than normal body temperature, can then be checked by the appropriate medical staff and self-isolate as instructed.

Already doing their job for the NHS

TClarke’s  Nigel Stephens who first introduced the cameras for NHS partners said:

“We are delighted to have taken our place as part of the NHS supply chain, delivering such cutting edge technology, We hope that by playing our small part in what is an enormous effort by the NHS across the board, lives are saved. We do know that the cameras have already been proven in detecting personnel with raised temperatures who were subsequently tested positive for COVID-19 and immediately isolated, rather than entering the shared workspace.”

Group CEO Mark Lawrence commented:

“Our specialist expertise has allowed us to move very quickly in evaluating the technology, installing it successfully in live environments and now in going on to introduce it for the benefit of our projects and all the people involved in them. Thanks go to the TClarke team, led by Nigel Stephens and to our supply chain partners. We are also extending the offer to others who want to evaluate this technology for their operations and will be receiving all inquiries via info@tclarke.co.uk
