Standard Practice for Location of Wet Insulation in Roofing Systems Using Infrared Imaging

1.1 This practice applies to techniques that employ infrared imaging at night to determine the location of wet insulation in roofing systems that have insulation above the deck in contact with the waterproofing. This practice includes ground-based and aerial inspections. (Warning—Extreme caution shall be taken when accessing or walking on roof surfaces and when operating aircraft at low altitudes, especially at night.) (Warning—It is a good safety practice for at least two people to be present on the roof surface at all times when ground-based inspections are being conducted.)

1.2 This practice addresses criteria for infrared equipment such as minimum resolvable temperature difference, spectral range, instantaneous field of view, and field of view.

1.3 This practice addresses meteorological conditions under which infrared inspections shall be performed.

1.4 This practice addresses the effect of roof construction, material differences, and roof conditions on infrared inspections.

1.5 This practice addresses operating procedures, operator qualifications, and operating practices.

1.6 This practice also addresses verification of infrared data using invasive test methods.

1.7 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
