Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Locate Roof Leaks

Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance</a> proudly introduces SkyBEAM (Building Envelope Asset Mapping) for use throughout Canada.

Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance introduces SkyBEAM (Building Envelope Asset Mapping) for use throughout Canada.

Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance proudly introduces SkyBEAM (Building Envelope Asset Mapping) for use throughout Canada. SkyBEAM is a groundbreaking program that uses unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with high-resolution thermographic (infrared) and video cameras to help Tremco Roofing’s customers locate where their facilities may be leaking energy through gaps in the roof, facade or elsewhere, or may have wet insulation; and to find and photograph other potential problems on the building.

SkyBEAM’s thermographic camera graphically depicts energy inefficiencies by showing temperature variations within the building, a result of problems that can lead to increased operating costs, occupant discomfort and other issues. Poor or missing sealing around windows, for example, typically allows energy to escape. On rooftops, wet insulation retains heat longer than dry insulation; wet insulation can cause enormous long-term damage if not removed.

Instead of standing on the ground and trying to map the facade of a multi-story building by holding a thermal or video camera, or by sending someone up in a lift, the UAV flies to the precise height, does the mapping and returns. Buildings can be mapped without the expense of tools, such as scaffolding. SkyBEAM also eliminates the need to send technicians onto rooftops to conduct infrared scans, which means no safety risks.

SkyBEAM is available to Tremco Roofing’s customers anywhere in Canada through a relationship with Toronto-based Industrial SkyWorks, experts in aerial mapping and reporting.
