Medical Thermometers

At Tiger Supplies, we offer a wide range of First Aid Kits and Accessories, including a quality selection of Medical Thermometers.

In this day and age, it is very useful to have a thermometer at work to prevent the spread of viruses and diseases. It is not a good idea to rely on guesswork when someone is ill.

Therefore, you should have a reliable medical thermometer in the workplace to find out if staff members have a fever. This information will help you determine the next steps for prevention.

Thermometers can be divided into:

  • Contact
  • Contact-free/Non-Contact

You can choose according to your personal preference. But in work environments, contact-free thermometers are the most practical option, as they will help prevent the spread of infection and ensure health and safety.

Understanding how these devices work is crucial, as the readings you get will vary depending on their design.

There are digital thermometers, oral thermometers, app-based thermometers, mercury thermometers, and forehead (temporal) thermometers. 

You may be wondering what type of thermometer is the most reliable. An accurate and comfortable thermometer is the best thermometer. Choosing a thermometer from a reputable manufacturer is also helpful.

We recommend Forehead Infrared Thermometers because they do not require physical contact. This characteristic makes them suitable for:

  • Airports
  • Schools
  • Shops
  • Companies

These devices use infrared sensors to measure the temperature of the superficial temporal artery. Generally, forehead temperatures are 0.6°C lower than oral temperatures and have the following advantages:

  • Suitable for use on children and adults
  • Quick readings, within a few seconds

However, to make the most of this device, you should position it accurately and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Otherwise, forehead thermometers will not provide the correct reading.

To get reliable results, you should avoid external factors such as indoor heating and direct sunlight. Workers should be advised to take off their hats and heavy coats before the reading as these garments can skew the results.

For large companies, we recommend the GP100 Wall Mounted Infrared Thermometer, which is user-friendly and features a backlight and numerical display for easy use. This device is a contact-free infrared thermometer that professionally measures the temperature and uses imported high-performance sensors to detect subtle temperature changes. The backlight colour and numerical display functions are very easy to make the user clearly distinguish the temperature values.

Another option suitable for any kind of organisation is the Infrared Thermometer Gun, which is a non-contact infrared thermometer as well. It features an automatic power-off in 30 seconds. It can measure body temperature, surface temperature, ambient temperature, and high temperature, and memorise 32 test data. It has 3 colour backlights:

  •  Green colour: 37.3°C (99.1°F) means normal temperature. 
  • Orange colour: 37.4°C (99.3°F - 100.2°F) means low fever. 
  • Red colour: 38°C (100.4°F) or over means high fever.
