Rope Access Bridge Inspection and Maintenance Services

MISTRAS specializes in bridge inspection and maintenance using rope access. By using a broad range of access techniques, our specialists can place themselves within arm's reach of critical members in the most safe, efficient and economical way possible.

Rope access capabilities allow the rope access team to work on structures that would otherwise be inaccessible or too expensive to reach using other means. Minimizing or eliminating lane or track closures is just one way Ropeworks lowers cost to the project and regional economy.
