Structural inspections used to be a time consuming and costly process that involved a team of trained inspection personnel, scaffolding, rope access specialists and other safety equipment. A single inspection point could take days to complete.

With the latest in aerial drone technology equipped with 4K HD video and thermal imaging capturing cameras, Balmore Media can offer a better solution. Our aerial drones can process structural, internal and thermal inspections. We can perform inspections during live use (ie. Hydroelectric dams) so there is no downtime and with aerial drones, there is no need for specialist teams who have to work at height, scaffolding and rope access.

Our inspection methods can be used in the following industrial structures:

  • Power Stations
  • Hydro Electric Dams
  • Solar Panels
  • Wind Farms
  • Building structures
  • Roofing

Our fully qualified team of expert aerial drone pilots are fully employed by Balmore Media and are certified for inspection and survey services across Scotland, England and Wales.

The cost savings by using aerial drones for structural inspections can go beyond the initial benefits. Because our drone inspections can be done over a greater area and in a reduced time frame, we can identify any potential issues more quickly and repairs can be actioned before the situation gets worse.

Our aerial drones reduce the need to personnel to be positioned in dangerous points in structures.
