    IRISS Warranty Statement

    As a Level III Thermographer, I depend on the products I have designed to ensure safe and accurate inspections of my customers’ critical electrical equipment. After years of use (and abuse), in a variety of industrial and building maintenance environments, I have designed the typical failure modes of traditional IR windows out of my “industrial-grade” products. I am, therefore, proud to offer the industry’s most comprehensive protection: an Unconditional Lifetime Warranty, with just one definition for successful performance of the product – your satisfaction.

    Timeline

    1997:

    VPC Series (Aluminum Housing)

    • Original IRISS IR windows were manufactured with aluminum housings and crystal lens.

    2000:

    VPC Series (Plastic Housing & Cover)

    • To enhance safety and ensure non-conductive housing and covers, IRISS developed plastic housing and covers.

    2003:

    VPFR Series (IR Polymer Featuring Fixed and Stable Transmission with Nylon Reinforced Grill)

    • After an extensive R&D effort to replace Fluoride crystals, historically known to fail due to their inherent weaknesses, IRISS unveiled impact-resistant polymers with Fixed and Stable Transmission as well as boasting resistance to water, light, acids and alkalis - unlike Fluoride crystals.
    • IRISS IR windows received UL Certification 508/508A and IP65/NEMA4 closed and when in use.

    2005:

    VPFR Series (Nylon Coated Aluminum Grill)

    • IRISS enhanced the already successful VPFR Series switching from a nylon reinforced grill to a nylon-coated aluminum grill.  The product would now pass UL746C which tested the lens flammability and impact resistance at 0 C making it the only IR window lens system in the world to hold this certification.

    2006:

    VPFR Series (2 Nylon Coated Aluminum Grills) & IR-ID Labels

    • IRISS upgraded the VPFR Series design by reinforcing two IP 2X grills.  This effectively sandwiches the polymer producing a lens assembly able to resist constant impact from a five pound impact and pass the UL 5" flame test, unsurpassed to date.  IRISS VPFR Series remains the ULTIMATE IR WINDOW SOLUTION on the market!
    • Launched a range of IR-ID Labels for emissivity reference points.

    2007:

    VP-12-US (Ultrasound Port)

    • This 0.5in ultrasound port with an attached cover can be used alone or in combination with IR windows.

    2008:

    Transmissive Panel Cover (TPC)

    • IRISS is the only company to date to offer custom-designed and fabricated TPC's.  Our TPC's can be made to virtually ANY specification (shape, size, material, color, etc.) at a competitive price and attractive lead times.

    2009:

    CAP Series

    • Recognizing the industry needed IR windows with a better field of view (FOV), IRISS developed and began manufacturing the CAP Series.  Available in 6in, 12in and 24in, the expanded FOV allows inspection of multiple components through one window, reducing installation time and costs.

    2010:

    Custom Solutions

    • IRISS is the first company to design, fabricate and assemble IR windows in various custom sizes, shapes and colors.  Custom Solutions as large as 60in+ in length are being made to retrofit switchgear across the country.

    Platinum Series (Featuring Poly-View System™), Training Solutions, US Patent, Private Label and Easy-Grip™

    • Released the Platinum Series featuring the Poly-View System™, the industry's first and only clear polymer lens allowing visual, UV and short/mid/longwave IR spectrum inspections.  The industrial-grade optic allows for a larger field-of-view and boasts a Fixed and Stable Transmission - far superior to crystal windows.
    • Accredited Thermography Training offered by our ASNT Level Three Certified Trainer.  IRISS is one of only a few qualified trainers in the world.
    • IRISS received official US Patent on all IR window polymers and reinforced grill designs.
    • Optional Private Label and Easy-GripTM cover added to product lines.  Private Label permits your logo and packaging on our state-of-the-art patented technology.
