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. Being launched in Q4 of 2019, the first model to market will be the 'Asbestos ALERT PRO 1000'. This unit provides detailed and customisable user reports, along with visible and audible alarms. The second model 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.
