Rope-access radiography is the performance of radiography, both conventional and computed, at height using rope-access techniques as opposed to more traditional scaffolding. Rope-access techniques can generate significant time and cost savings.

As one of the founding members of IRATA and with over 25 years’ experience in the industry, we consider access-related issues simply as excellent opportunities to work with our clients to reach suitable, safe and effective access solutions.
Applus+ is one of the only testing and inspection service providers to offer rope-access radiography with both conventional and computed systems. The ability to perform radiographic inspections without the need for costly scaffolding or alternative access methods allows the carrying out of quick, efficient and safe operations and offers a significant advantage to Applus+ customers
Applus+ has drawn on its in-depth expertise in this field to design its own equipment and develop unique rope-access radiography procedures that comply with all standards and regulations.
All Applus+ rope-access technicians around the world are IRATA trained and hold radiography licences for the region in which they work. Their IRATA training is supplemented by specialist in-house training.
Rope-access radiography can be employed anywhere that inspections need to be carried out at height and the client wishes to avoid the need to erect scaffolding or use similar, more cumbersome access methods.
Rope-access radiography removes or reduces the need for scaffolding as well as reducing the time required to complete an inspection task. Its direct benefits include:
  • Reduced downtime of facilities
  • Reduced cost to client
  • Reduced exposure of personnel to the risks of working at height
By partnering with Applus+ for rope-access radiography, clients can also benefit from the flexibility of the diverse Applus+ service offering. Rope access, as a technique, can be coupled with a range of other non-destructive testing, inspection or mechanical procedures – even at short notice.
