As a bridge owner, you will inevitably want to ensure that your assets are safe to use and fit for purpose. While there are many bridge inspection companies out there, SAS Rope & Rail has built an especially strong reputation for the bridge inspection services that it can provide across the UK.
Based in Swindon, SAS Rope & Rail is one of the country’s most trusted rope access contractors.
We are long-established experts in structural examination having provided such services since 2004, while we are also renowned for the qualifications possessed by our team, not least the STE4 Structural Examination Qualification required by Network Rail.
Bridge inspection will always be a highly-specialised field of work requiring a highly trained, capable and experienced team, and few teams answer all of those briefs better than our own here at SAS Rope & Rail. Our bridge inspection assignments down the years have even included the iconic Forth Bridge.
We know that when you are perusing and comparing bridge inspection companies, you will be looking for a firm that takes the most informed and thorough approach. Sure enough, all of our team members are safety boat trained. This enables our routine use of inflatable and hard-hulled boats during our bridge inspections and other safety and structural examinations that take place over water – all to ensure the most fastidious inspection and the complete safety of our operatives.
Our work is not done even once the bridge inspection is complete, as we will then produce a comprehensive report, outlining any next steps that we would recommend you to take. This report will show the results of any testing that we have carried out, in addition to drawing attention to any structural defects in your bridge, accompanied by any photographic evidence that may be required.
There are many other aspects of our scrupulous approach to bridge inspection that help to explain how we have come to command such a formidable reputation across the UK – not least our unique rope access technique that significantly expands the range of structural examinations that we can undertake.
However difficult you might imagine the inspection process to be for your own bridge, whether for reasons of inaccessibility, affordability, intrusion or danger, here at SAS Rope & Rail, we have a proven track record of carrying out the most challenging assignments with aplomb.
Our rope technicians are some of the most experienced and best-qualified in the industry, having all received training and assessment from the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA), in addition to being led by highly seasoned advisors in possession of level 3 IRATA qualifications.
If your bridge is in a high-traffic area or would otherwise be impractical to inspect during the day, we will also endeavour to undertake our examinations at night to minimise disruption. Whatever your specific requirements, our rope access teams are receptive to them.
