Tailored Coating Inspections Provided in the UK

We offer a range of services, from certified third-party inspection to personal safety surveys and competency training. In all services, we ensure that 24-hour technical support is available 365 days a year, so you’re never left waiting for answers. To discuss our coating inspections, corrosion surveys, and any other solution we provide, please get in touch.

Third-Party Inspection

Our qualified inspectors offer a comprehensive third-party inspection of all aspects of fabric maintenance, from surface preparation to completion, ensuring that work is up to specifications and any required standards are met. We provide internal and external audits, and quality assurance, to help self-certifying companies confirm that conditions are up to the required standard.

Coating Condition Surveys

We offer destructive and non-destructive tests to determine the condition of paint and coatings, measuring adhesion strength and overall thickness. Our non-destructive tests include holiday testing, salt tests, and surface profile readings. Our findings are delivered via our specialised report system.

We are also currently in negotiations with coatings manufacturers so that we can offer our own warranty on their behalf – watch this space for further developments and contact us if you’re interested in finding out more.

Corrosion Surveys

We also provide in-depth corrosion surveys. We measure each component, whether structural or pipework and then determine its condition using the Ri scale. The data we collect is then added to our unique spreadsheet and used to deliver a detailed report on the amount of corrosion on-site. 

PFP Surveys

PFP (Passive Fire Prevention) is a vital part of keeping any working environment safe. We provide detailed PFP surveys to either verify existing surveys or establish that an area meets the required standards.

Failure Analysis

Without knowing why something works, it can be hard to determine why it might fail. Our experienced investigators can provide a comprehensive failure analysis service, considering conditions, application and other factors to deliver an unbiased diagnostic report that can also help prevent future failures.

Personal Safety Survey

This survey assesses potential risks to personal safety in dangerous working environments and advises accordingly. Clients can specify the desired safety requirements of our professional survey, which can cover emergency equipment, access points, items and fixtures such as gratings, handrails, deck plates, tram lines, ladders, and backscratchers.

Technical Support

In addition to providing 24-hour technical support every day of the year, our in-house inspectors also offer support and coaching on request. If required, our technical authority can also provide written instructions to aid in the planning of complex work-scopes.

“Overall a Competent Inspection”

“Having witnessed CIS Director, Julian Firth carry out blast cleanliness and primer dry film thickness inspections on site, I would like to recommend C.I.S for future projects. Julian presented himself in a professional manner and carried out inspections with ease. Julian's report contained all of the information in an unbiased manner and he was able to recommend the corrective action to a problem found during the inspection. Overall a competent inspection, showing his skill and knowledge in performing a visual inspection, surface profile tests, salt tests using the Bresle test method and dry film thickness measurements on the primer.”
