SURVEYING HAZARDOUS AREAS

SAFELY ACQUIRING ON-SITE MEASUREMENT DATA

There are many different types of confined spaces and hazardous area classifications which occur across sites throughout the UK. These are usually controlled to restrict unauthorised access and may often require specialized training and equipment to gain entry.  However, the first rule to any confined space entry is to avoid it.

PointSCAN specialise in 3D laser scanning of confined spaces and hazardous areas.  With over 20 years of experience in confined space entry, we can manage or assist with assessments and solutions designed to comply with your current safety requirements.  Above all our surveys are designed to minimise the entry of personnel allowing anyone to review the area in a safer virtual reality environment.

First rule of confined space entry... AVOID IT!

laser scanning in confined spaces

Inverted tripods allow 3D laser scanner access via entry points, eliminating access by personnel whilst the scanner can be remotely operated from a safe location.

Where ever possible, measurement data for tanks and chambers can be acquired from a safe location.

Unrestricted access with Confined space survey

A single survey provides multiple formats to view and explore the surveyed area in virtual reality.  Access can now be granted to all members of the project team without any additional training.  Moreover, limiting access to just the survey team reduces overall project risk as well as the potential saving of time and project cost.

Unlimited Design

2D drafting data created from a 3D laser survey can be edited to delete individual items and install designs for a new plant to be fitted in the knowledge that the scan file is at a 1:1 ratio.

No longer in the dark

A 3D laser survey is able to capture high-quality images and measurement data due to the fact that it generates its own light source.  Therefore no additional lighting is required.
