Scott Sight from Scott Safety is the UK fire fighting industry’s first ever in-mask thermal imaging intelligence system. This groundbreaking system brings the future of fire fighting into clear view for those on the frontline and is set to revolutionise the industry.

The system utilises hands-free thermal imaging technology to provide firefighters with a clear, unobstructed view of their surroundings, thus improving their situational intelligence and eradicating the need to stop searching or put the hose down to deploy a hand-held camera. As well as being exceptionally lightweight, at 241g, Scott Sight is very powerful, producing a 160×120 resolution at nine frames per second through an infinity lens, which ensures a clear picture with no eyestrain.

Longin Kloc, Global Product Manager, Growth Initiatives from Scott Safety, said, “We are extremely proud to launch such an innovative product for the fire fighting industry. Scott Sight really is a sophisticated imaging tool – it supplements existing hand-held technology by offering configurable hands-free visibility to the wearer in often inhospitable situations.

“To create Scott Sight, we worked very closely with firefighters to develop a thermal imaging solution that is more accessible and easier to use. This means that the wearer’s attention can stay focused on the fire, enhancing the ability to spot hazards and locate casualties, while also providing the means to identify a secondary egress in the event of a sudden change in circumstances.”
