April – October: the main thermal imaging season is closed through the warmer months, when it’s hard to achieve 10°C internal/external temperature difference for good images.
But ask if you have a special need to borrow one – maybe a heatwave!
1. Check the 2 calendars below to see when the cameras are free. NB: they’re now kept in different locations to suit more borrowers. Click an individual entry for more details of pick up/drop off times.
2. Make note of which camera you would like to book and on which dates you would like to book it. We ask that wherever possible, and certainly during busy times borrowers limit their borrowing time to 2-3 days, unless it’s for many surveys.
3. To book: email firstname.lastname@example.org saying which camera you would like to book and the dates you would like to book it for. Or phone the CCF office on 01223 301842.
4. Collecting & Returning
Camera 1, our original Fluke TIR, is available to be picked up and dropped off, by arrangement, from CCF office: normally Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm – phone 01223 301842.
If this doesn’t work, sometimes it can be arranged to pick it up from/drop it off to another surveyor who’s using the camera before/after you.
Camera 2, our newer Fluke TIR015 can be picked up and dropped off, by arrangement, with Jason Palmer: email@example.com from Cambridge Architectural Research: normally Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm – phone 01223 460475.
These thermal imaging cameras may only be borrowed by trained surveyors.
