Project future

Alert Technology Ltd

ATL is a spin off from The Select Group of Companies who alongside the University of Hertfordshire and members of the EU FP7 funded consortium, developed the world's first portable, accurate real-time warning device for airborne asbestos.

The ALERT device is being commercialised by Alert Technology Ltd which officially commenced trading on 1st January 2017 following receipt of private equity investment at the end of December 2016.

Asbestos ALERT is the first portable, accurate warning device capable of distinguishing between airborne asbestos and non-asbestos fibres in real-time, helping to prevent prolonged inadvertent exposure and enabling safety precautions to be taken.

After successfully completing the FP7 R&D project, Alert Technology Ltd has two models ready for rapid commercialization. A handheld model which gives a simple yes/no indication of whether asbestos fibres are present in the vicinity and a PRO version which gives the user a more detailed data set. Future models have already been identified for further development and the scope for industry specific models is broad.

The first model to market will be the 'Asbestos ALERT' and 20 units are planned to go into the market for further robust commercial field trials before final production and market launch.
