Ropepro are pictured here conducting Ultrasonic Thickness Testing at an Industrial Manufacturing site in the Geelong region to measure steel thickness of Silo’s.

To safely access all areas of the tops of these Silo’s for testing we were required to remove sections of the walkway grating. When doing this a potential fall hazard was created and would require temporary fall protection to be in place to ensure worker safety. Utilising rope access and rigging skills our crew were able to provide a temporary height safety system that enabled safe access to complete the testing. This type of testing gives the owner of these assets a great insight into the structural integrity of the asset with minimal disruption to the their operations.
