SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company extends its conventional and advanced Non-Destructive Testing services offering “Industrial Rope Access” for inspection of structures and structural surveys in height and in hard-to-reach areas.

Industrial Rope Access is a form of work positioning developed from techniques used in caving. It solves difficult access problems, without using scaffolding, cradles or mobile elevated work platforms. Compared to conventional accessing methods for inspection and testing, rope access can be completed more quickly thus saving costs by reducing working hours. Additionally, as it minimizes disruption at ground level, it often allows work to continue during inspection.

A complete Industrial Rope Access service makes the involvement of the majority of other access machinery or work equipment dispensable, allowing further project expense savings.

SGS is a member of the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA). Our operational work is conducted in line with International Guidelines and based on a commitment to thorough training and diligent operational procedures. All SGS technicians and inspectors receive extensive training and independent assessment and are required to undergo re-training every three years. The equipment used is regularly inspected and well maintained ensuring that the work carried out is done in a safe and high quality manner.

SGS provides training and examinations to NDT technicians, manager and surveyors in accordance with the recognized worldwide standards all over the world.

We are continuously developing our services and applications and are your reliable partner for NDT present in all major industrial countries offering a global integrated NDT network.
