Non-Destructive Rope Access Testing

At Heightsafe, we recognise the importance of safety and reliability in materials, products, and structures. Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) serves as a cornerstone in our commitment to ensuring the integrity of assets throughout their lifecycle – from production to decommissioning. Our NDT services are conducted through innovative Rope Access inspections, providing specialised solutions tailored to your unique requirements.

Benefits of Non-Destructive Testing

Prevention of Potential Accidents

Our NDT services play a crucial role in identifying surface and subsurface defects, mitigating the risk of potential accidents. By proactively locating and addressing structural weaknesses, we contribute to a safer working environment.

Reduction of Expenditure

Investing in NDT is a cost-effective strategy. By identifying defects early on, we help you avoid costly repairs and downtime, ultimately reducing overall expenditure throughout the asset’s lifecycle.

Provision of Remedial Action Requirements

Heightsafe’s NDT inspections not only identify issues but also provide clear and actionable recommendations for remedial actions. This proactive approach ensures that potential problems are addressed promptly, contributing to the longevity and reliability of your assets.

NDT via Rope Access Inspection

Our NDT services conducted through Rope Access inspections offer additional advantages:


Rope Access inspections provide a cost-effective alternative to traditional methods. By eliminating the need for expensive equipment and scaffolding, we deliver efficient solutions without compromising on safety or quality.


With Rope Access, we can swiftly access even the most challenging areas, minimising downtime and disruption to your operations. Our skilled technicians efficiently conduct NDT inspections, ensuring timely results and recommendations.

Ease of Access for Difficult-to-Reach Areas

Rope Access techniques enable us to reach areas that would otherwise be difficult or impractical to access. This flexibility ensures comprehensive inspections, leaving no part of your asset uninspected.

Heightsafe’s NDT Inspection Disciplines

Our Non-Destructive Inspection disciplines include:

Magnetic Particle Testing and Inspection (MPI)

MPI detects surface or near-surface breaks in ferromagnetic materials, ensuring a thorough examination of critical components.

Dye Penetrant Inspection and Testing (DPI/PT)

Used for both ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic materials, DPI/PT identifies surface discontinuities, contributing to a comprehensive NDT assessment.

Ultrasonic Testing (UT)

UT measures the time for high-frequency pulses of sound waves travelling through materials, providing insights into their structural integrity.

Eddy Current Inspection (ECI)

ECI observes the interaction between induced electrical currents and materials, offering a specialised approach to NDT inspections.

Radiography (RAD)

RAD testing reveals internal, surface, and sub-surface irregularities, making it a versatile technique for various materials and applications.

Visual Testing and Inspection (VI)

VI testing evaluates the condition of components or welds, serving as an essential step in determining the need for further, more specialised inspections.
