Alert Technology Ltd
Alert Technology commenced trading in 2017 following the receipt of private equity investment in December 2016.
The Alert Device was initially developed alongside the University of Hertfordshire and members as part of an EU FP7 funded consortium which successfully concluded with a working proto-type in 2014. ALERT is the world’s first portable, accurate real-time warning device for airborne asbestos that is capable of distinguishing airborne asbestos fibres from other and non-asbestos fibres in real-time.
Portable and easy to use, the ALERT has been designed to help prevent prolonged exposure by providing an early warning allowing the appropriate corrective safety precautions to be undertaken without delay. It objective is to reduce risk and provide a vital first line of defence for people both working and living in environments containing asbestos.
Following years of academic and commercial research and development Alert Technology’s first model, the ALERT PRO 1000 is due to be launched in September 2019 at the Contamination Expo. An early adopters scheme is available initially to businesses in the UK and Europe who have expressed their interestContact us for more information.
The second model planned for future release will be the ‘Asbestos ALERT PRO 2000’ which will also include wireless communication and GPS. Additional future models have already been identified for further development and the scope for industry specific models is broad.
MD of Alert Technology, Alan Archer and his team are totally dedicated after many years of development to the commercial success of the ALERT range of warning devices around the world and are very excited to see the devices come to market.
“Coming from a construction industry background and having lost friends and former colleagues to asbestos-related diseases it is our aim, and my personal ambition, to help improve safe living and working environments by reducing the risk of unnecessary asbestos exposure with ALERT and ultimately help to save lives.” – Alan Archer, MD, Alert Technology Ltd
