Drones For Restricted Access 

By |2020-01-07T17:18:20+00:00November 30th, 2019|Categories: Inspections & Surveys|0 Comments

Drones For Restricted Access Examples include roofs, chimney stacks, aerials and lift mechanisms. Scaffolding has been one of the only options in the past, but this can be time consuming to organise and expensive to arrange. An emerging alternative is to hire a restricted access aerial photographer. To photograph and record data from buildings of one or two storeys an aerial photographer may use a pole-mounted camera. These devices can typically reach around thirty feet into the air, so can be useful for basic roof inspections of domestic and small commercial properties. Aerial camera poles serve a purpose, (Hire [...]

On this blog, we’ve quite often looked at the difference UAV technology is predicted to make in industries such as construction and insurance.  However, the drone’s potential isn’t limited to dry land with many maritime and offshore companies beginning to look at how they can capture and utilise their own corner of this emerging industry. One of the main fields in which drones are being deployed at sea (as they are on land) is for carrying out of marine inspections. The Royal Navy is making use of these high portable cameras to inspect their vessels [...]

Wind Turbine Inspections by the UK's leading drone pilots At the end of 2017 there were nearly 345,000 wind turbines operating worldwide and it’s fair to assume that this number has increased since then. Each must be regularly inspected and maintained in order to keep it at optimum efficiency. There are some very obvious difficulties in carrying out thorough inspections on these towering structures. Luckily, these are difficulties that UAVs are ideally positioned to overcome. The requirement for high quality cameras, craft and licensed experienced pilots means that much of this inspection work is outsourced – [...]

It's largely agreed that the UK and Ireland have barely begun to tap into the huge potential that commercial drones have to offer. An industry still in its infancy, the business world is still investigating ways in which drones and unmanned aerial vehicles in general can make operations faster, safer and more cost efficient. One area that has been quicker to the party in leveraging 'drone power' is agriculture.  In fact 18% of farmers are now thought to be using drones in some form to assist them with their land management.  Particularly impressive for an industry that has [...]

With winter fast approaching, it is time for all of us here across the UK to think about getting our homes ready for the battering of the season. Sometimes, prevention is better than cure but the cost and inconvenience of a traditional roof inspection can mean that we put it off and simply hope for the best. This means that damage can occur to the outside of our properties which we don’t know about until that damage can be seen on the interior – more expensive to fix and more inconvenience all round.

Drone building surveys are becoming increasingly common. The UK has been slow to catch up with using drone technology in the construction industry, but there are signs this is changing. The Federal Aviation Administration in the USA predicts that seven million drones will be in use in the country by 2020, and large percentage of these will be operated in construction. As well as drone building surveys, unmanned aircraft have a role to play in design, inspection and monitoring. Some large construction firms send their surveyors for drone training and invest in their own equipment, but [...]
