ZS Solutions

Difficult Access Inspection Services

At ZS, our team members are trained to safely access locations necessary to comprehensively inspect building elements that are not easily accessible.  The access techniques range from crane mounted inspection baskets to Industrial Rope Access techniques with our partners from Rope Link.

With our licensed Structural Engineers and experienced technicians, ZS is able to offer immediate assessments as to the condition of the components being inspected.   The ability to evaluate and, if necessary, stabilize building elements is critical to public safety.

The alternate access techniques offered by ZS provide numerous advantages to the client including:

  • Faster access in emergencies
  • Better evaluations with up close access
  • Reduced impact to the site
  • Minimized impact to building occupants
  • Reduced costs

Once the location is accessed, the ZS team, in cooperation with our affiliate nondestructive testing companies, is able to perform the following non-destructive testing services:

  • Dye Penetrant Inspection
  • Magnetic Particle Inspection
  • Radiographic Inspection
  • Ultrasonic Inspection
  • Eddy Current Inspection
  • Paint/Coating Inspection
  • Half Cell & Linear Polarization Testing
  • Boroscope Inspection
  • Cover-meter Survey

Additional services may include material sampling and the installation of monitoring equipment.

As with any engineering project, the ZS objective is to meet and/or exceed applicable codes and regulations. The ZS team’s experience and knowledge base allows administration of a plan of action to safely, effectively, and efficiently access difficult areas.
