Non-Destructive Rope Access Testing


Non-Destructive tests are used to locate surface and subsurface defects, ensuring safety and reliability of materials, products and structures, commonly acting as a quality assurance management tool throughout the asset’s lifecycle – from production to decommissioning.

Heightsafe can support your asset throughout its lifecycle with Non-Destructive Testing via Rope Access inspections, providing a wide range of specialist solutions to meet your requirements.

    Heightsafe’s Non-Destructive inspection disciplines include:

    • Magnetic Particle Testing and Inspection (MPI)

    MPI’s detect surface or near surface breaks in ferromagnetic materials.

    • Dye Penetrant Inspection and Testing (DPI/PT)

    Penetrant inspection and testing are used to detect surface discontinuities in both ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic materials.

    • Ultrasonic Testing (UT)

    UT is a technique which measures the time for high frequency pulses of sound waves travelling through material.

    • Eddy Current Inspection (ECI)

    ECI uses electrical currents which are induced into a material, inspecting and observing the interaction between currents and material.

    • Radiography (RAD)

    RAD testing is used to reveal internal, surface and sub-surface irregularities within castings, composites, forgings and welded parts. This technique can also be used for corrosion mapping and the measurement of wall thickness.

    • Visual Testing and Inspection (VI)

    VI testing is commonly used to evaluate the condition of a component or weld and is extensively used to determine whether further inspections, such as the above, are required.
