About Us

argus range of thermal imaging cameras from Avon Protection

Avon Protection developed the first ever hand-held thermal imager for firefighting over 35 years ago.

Having been developed for firefighting in the UK, the camera was adopted by UK Naval firefighting personnel; its purpose was to allow users to navigate through smoke filled compartments on naval vessels.

This was also the first commercial hand-held thermal imaging camera ever used by US firefighters.
