Specialist Access Systems
ROV, UAV, & Robotic Engineering Inspection Services
Growing numbers of asset owners are using unmanned aerial vehicles such as drones for condition assessments as they provide significant improvements in safety and reduction in costs compared to traditional inspection methods.
Duratec’s in-house drone pilots carry out detailed visual inspections of concrete and steel structures to assess the general condition of the asset. once completed the client receives a fly by video and a detailed findings report inclusive of remediation options and realistic budget estimates to conduct the repairs.
NDT is used to ensure the quality of materials and joining processes during fabrication and installation, and in-service to ensure that materials continue to have the integrity necessary to ensure their functionality and safety.
Duratec’s NDT Technicians are comprehensively trained, highly experienced and accredited by globally recognised authorising bodies such as the Australian Institute of Non- Destructive Testing (AINDT) and the British Institute for Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT). This certification, coupled with Duratec’s ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and AS/NZS 4801 accreditations ensure our ability to deliver the highest quality.
Glazing Replacement & Repair
Glazing must be resistant to weather conditions and impact and offer thermal insulation, sound-proofing, security and protection from UV light, so it’s essential that it is correctly installed and maintained.
Duratec provides tailor-made inspection and maintenance plans for your building and services include tinting, sealant and gasket replacement, window installations and replacement. Maintenance includes the application of glass treatments, pollution and stain cleaning and investigative inspections.
Signage Installation & Maintenance
Although we are moving more toward a world of digital advertising, bricks-and-mortar businesses still rely on physical signage to promote their brand.
A creative, attractive sign can help your business stand apart from the competition, but not if it’s in poor condition. Duratec provides design consultation, fabrication and construction of corporate sky signs. Installation methods include advanced rigging using cranes, winches and rope access. We have also designed ‘smart signs’ to notify the owner of a fault and pinpoint its location, making maintenance cost effective. We are also able to program the sign to switch off to protect your brand until the fault is rectified.
Asset owners are often faced with the challenges of obtaining a preliminary understanding of the integrity of their structures whilst remaining operational or minimising access costs, especially with large structures such as chimney stacks.
Our team has extensive experience in the inspection and maintenance of industrial chimney stacks and provide access systems in a variety of forms including: rope access, swing stage, bespoke platform, Alimak and mast climber. We can inspect the stack either online or offline as part of a maintenance strategy or in response to a problem.
Technical Lifting & Rigging
This involves complex and often multiple lifting and rigging systems, often specially designed to meet the challenges of specific projects.
Our experience means we can provide lifting and rigging systems for bespoke lifting scenarios, complex lift parameters, heavy lifting and lifting around complex geometrical and geographical features.
Height Safety Systems Design & Installation
A safe and effective fall protection system is pivotal in reducing injury and productivity.
We have a thorough knowledge of regulatory standards, correct installation and rapid assembly techniques, trained staff and regular height safety system maintenance programs. We can design, supply and install fall protection systems to the highest standard to meet the requirements of any site.
Mechanical testing and the replacement of unserviceable constituents ensures the mechanical characteristics and components of structures remain in good and safe working condition.
We offer a wide range of mechanical services including load testing, welding, torquing and the replacement of worn components.
Major façade refurbishments need to be executed professionally with critical attention focussed on public safety and minimal disruption to the building tenants, so detailed planning and communication with all stakeholders is vital.
Duratec’s personnel have many years of contracting experience delivering major façade refurbishments including concrete repairs, corrosion mitigation, architectural and engineered coatings, aluminium repair, waterproofing and diagnostic surveying. We also understand the stringent processes of heritage listed restorations and have completed many award-winning remediation heritage projects.
