Rope access advantage
It has led the delivery of rope access services to the industry for over twenty years. The savings provided by rope access delivery are well recognized, and monthly result in millions of dollars of savings versus conventional alternatives. It is the first, and longest-standing, full member of the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA), as well as the largest rope access service provider in North America. Our expertise is well established – and our delivery of bespoke solutions at height and to difficult-to-access areas provides both savings in time and cost.
Safe delivery of our rope access program is paramount. Our rope access work has rigorous audited compliance standards and is now recognized as safer than traditional access means, such as scaffolding and lifts.

Products & Services
Digital Radiography (DR) / Computed Radiography (CR)
Acuren’s Digital Imaging Services Offer Numerous Benefits Over Conventional Film X-Ray Where Profile Radiography Is Utilized
Enjoy safer testing with Acuren’s Digital Radiography (DR) and Computed Radiography (CR) services. DR is a form of x-ray imaging where digital x-ray sensors (DDA) are used instead of traditional photographic film; CR uses a flexible phosphor Imaging Plate to capture digital images in place of photographic film. The resulting digital images can be emailed for additional analysis and enhanced to aid in interpretation of test results. Creating digital files also eliminates risks from exposure to silver-based film or chemicals. Acuren’s DR takes less energy to operate, resulting in smaller exclusion zones and the elimination of RT windows. In addition to being safer this also results in faster, more informed decision making, a clear understanding of next steps and significant cost savings.
Faster, Safer, Reduced Environmental Footprint and More Accurate Than Conventional X-Rays
You know instantly whether your image has been captured thus eliminating reshoots, no developing or processing time required, and no need for multiple shots for material of varying thickness. Since there is no film or imaging plates, film storage and chemical disposal costs are eliminated.
Principal Advantages Over Film Radiography
Safety – Speed – Environmental Considerations
- Safer work environment
- Saves both time and money
- High resolution images
- Faster shot times
- Elimination of film and chemicals
- ASTM E 2339-04 (DICONDE) compliant
- ISO 14001 compliant for environmental management systems
- Reduced exclusion zones
- No need to remove insulation
- Measures pitting corrosion
- Reduced doses of radiation to technicians
- Portability and ease of use
- Digital files can be delivered via email
- Versatile software exposure and interpretation tools
- Reliable, repeatable service only Acuren can deliver
