The Thermal Advantage, how far can you see?
The advantage of thermal analytics over traditional camera technology allows Peel Ports to detect incidents and threats before the human eye could even discover them. This level of immediacy allows for the safeguarding of the waterways and cargo movement on land and sea with incredible detail.

The ever-expanding technological advances and the lower cost of cameras have meant a new array of Site Facility Managers (SFM). Security departments can use thermal technology that was once restricted to the military or navy.

Traditional cameras are challenged by external factors such as weather and ambient lighting, causing a limited viewpoint through lens flare and broken light. Therefore thermal imaging has become the foundation of Port security, giving reliable and accurate information 24/7.

Industrial security expertise within a tough coastal environment. Through our bespoke EAR© (Enterprise Audit Report) and motivated team, we have added great value at Peel Ports.
