Fever Screening Solutions

23.03.20

Get in touch today to enquire about a fever screening thermal solution. A thermal screening solution is an effective tool to protect any home or organisation against the COVID-19. Barlows (UK) Ltd are working with HikVision to keep you safe and secure during this time of crisis. The HikVision thermal solution is the perfect tool to aid high level screening reducing the requirement to manually measure every individual's temperature. Advantages: High Efficiency: It takes just one second for a thermal camera to detect the temperature of a person, thus allows screening of large numbers of people at a time. Safety: Thermal cameras feature non-contact temperature measurement from about one meter away, avoiding unnecessary physical contact. AI Human Body Detection: Hikvision Bullet/Turret Fever Screening Thermographic Cameras feature AI human body detection to fix the measurement areas to human bodies, thus reducing false alarms caused by other heat sources. Embedded Audio Alarms: With a built-in audio module, Hikvision Bullet/Turret Fever Screening Thermographic Cabers can trigger alarms to notify operators immediately when a person with a fever passes by. See the video below to see how this works. For more information and prices, Contact us - 0330 311 0999. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcEpnXb0O6M

Barlows & Frederic Robinson’s Annual Ride 2019

16.10.19

In October, Barlows took part in the annual charity ride with Frederic Robinson’s Brewery. This year, it was Robinson's turn to pick the charity, they decided all proceeds would go to Help for Heroes. Director, Ed Barlow and Contract Manager, Nick Webb joined a team of five from the brewery on a typical wet Manchester day to complete the 50 mile ride. The route took the team to a few Robinson’s pubs along the way with the odd off-road detour! After 2 torrential downpours, a mechanical problem and 3 stylish dismounts, the team made it back to the brewery one piece just in time for a celebratory beer! The money raised for Help for Heroes is currently a £225 and counting! We want to thank anyone who helped.
