Rope Access


Rope Access

Rope access methods have become a popular choice for providing industrial services like industrial chimney inspections, smokestack repairs, and more. It was originally developed in the early 1990s to be a more effective way to perform maintenance quickly on offshore vessels and rigs. In the most recent decades, rope access has made its way to onshore plants, facilities, and mills. If you have yet to consider rope access techniques for your industrial facility, you are missing out on an effective, efficient, and cost-saving maintenance option. There are a few misconceptions about the capabilities that rope access can provide, and you might be surprised just what tasks can be accomplished with this method. Although many of our assignments are 500 ft or higher, routine maintenance tasks are completed at much lower heights, making rope access a great solution for all types of industrial projects.

Frequently Asked

We’re committed to providing unmatched NDT testing service with our specialized equipment, technology, experience, and personnel. If you don’t your question answered here, feel free to get in touch.

What is NDT/NDE?
NDT is nondestructive testing, a group of techniques that evaluate equipment and materials without causing damage. NDE or nondestructive examination describes the technologies and results.
How long does NDT testing take?

Because NDT testing could mean such a broad range of tests, and every facility is different, there’s not a standard time frame. However, in every situation, our approach seeks to minimize down time and avoid unnecessary shutdowns. We’ll work around your schedule and help plan NDT testing to have the minimum impact on productivity. 

What does NDT/NDE Testing cost?

Cost varies by the type of test administered, the type of equipment or material to be tested, and several other factors. Contact us to discuss your NDT/NDE testing needs.

How do I know what NDT/NDE testing methods my facility needs?

We can help you compare nondestructive testing methods and match them to your goals and budget.
