Monroe Infrared has Florida-based Level 3 Certified Thermographers who are highly experienced in Electrical IR inspections and are available to help Miami-Dade County and all other areas in the state.
The collapse of the Champlain Tower South in the Town of Surfside raised awareness for more thorough preventive and proactive annual inspections to ensure safety of life and property.
The Miami-Dade County Board of Rules and Appeals (BORA) has approved revisions to its 40-Year Building Recertification’s General Considerations and Guidelines. These are inclusive of the Structural and Electrical Recertification Inspection Guidelines, and are based on recommendations received from BORA Building Sub-Committee meetings held after the collapse of the Champlain Tower South in the Town of Surfside
The updated guidelines include specific requirements for Infrared thermography electrical safety inspections and high minimum training and experience qualifications of certified thermographers:
The Infrared inspection of electrical equipment shall be performed by a minimum Level 2 certified thermographer or higher who is qualified and trained to recognize and document thermal anomalies in electrical systems and possesses over 7 years of experience inspecting electrical systems associated with commercial buildings.
For electrical systems operating at 400 amperes or greater, an infrared thermography inspection with a written report of the following electrical equipment must be provided as applicable or as otherwise indicated below:
Busways, switchgear, panelboards (except in dwelling unit load centers), disconnects, VFDS, starters, control panels, timers, meter centers, gutters, junction boxes, automatic/manual transfer switches, exhaust fans and transformers.
Monroe Infrared’s Florida-based thermographers meet or surpass all the requirements of the updated BORA guidelines for certification and experience. We are ready and available to help Miami-Dade County and all other areas in the state.
