Coatings Inspection and Other Services

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.

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.


Drone Inspection

Fully Qualified & Certified - CAA Permission for Commercial Operations (PFCO)

By utilising UAVs for aerial survey and inspection our clients can reduce cost, risk, and environmental impact. UAVs have the benefit of being less intrusive than erecting scaffolding, using man handling equipment or rope access. This safer, quicker and more cost-effective inspection solution has numerous applications including:

  • Flare Stack Inspection
  • Bridge Inspection
  • Wind Turbine Inspection
  • Roof & Building Inspection
  • Power Line & Transmission 
  • Tower Surveys
  • Mast & Tower Inspection
  • 360 Degree Panoramic Photography

UAV Inspection Services

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV or UAS) Aerial Survey & Inspection with CAA Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO)

We are proud to offer our clients visual inspections on wind turbines, gas and oil platforms, communication masts, buildings and infrastructures, by utilising hi-tech UAV aerial surveillance units. Using the robust Matrice 210 model, we provide a safe and cost-effective visual inspection, even in areas that are difficult to reach.

This unit is backed up by a weather and water-resistant body rated up to IP43, which means we’re well equipped to handle work in almost any weather conditions, in temperatures ranging from -20 to 45ºC, for an impressive flight time of 38 minutes. Fitted with state of the art Zenmuse cameras and designed for exceptional versatility, our UAV technology allows us to perform detailed inspections in even the most inaccessible areas, including under decks and bridges.

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.
