Part of our Ground Based Inspection Services for customers across Scotland using mobile aerial access platforms.

When aerial drone surveys and underwater ROV inspection is simply not possible, we can use our mobile aerial access platform for elevated inspection work in city centre locations and in rural areas.

With a high population zone comes high levels of foot traffic which can prevent aerial drone inspection services from being conducted. In these situations, we can provide an alternative option.

Our Ground Based Inspection Photography Services is the perfect compliment to our aerial survey and ROV underwater inspection services covering land, sea & air.

Equipped with our Z7 camera with 70mm – 500mm lens, we can capture incredible detail of inspection zones that we simply cannot access with one of our aerial drone survey vehicles.

Ground Based Inspection can provide crystal clear zoomed in inspection images. Like our aerial drone survey footage, each photo is imprinted with GPS coordinates that enables us to add location tracking to our inspections and can be included in our cloud based inspection software.

These kind of details can prove invaluable for comparison and archiving of inspection data and can be used as an added level of inspection to compliment our aerial inspection services.

From our head office in Glasgow, we can provide our Ground Based Inspection Services across Scotland and the North of England.

As part of our never ending commitment at Balmore to invest in our team and our equipment, this mobile access platform offers the most advanced aerial platform system available on the market. With S3 EVO Smart Stability System for safe, smooth and precise control, our aerial access platform can offer three core benefits:

Fast, responsive access

An aerial access platform allows fast, responsive access to inspection sites without the need for scaffolding. Scaffolding can be an expensive and time consuming process to erect. An aerial platform like ours can quickly access the same locations without hindering building access or requiring permits.


Working at height can be dangerous. But with our Aerial Access Platform, the integrated S3 EVO system controls the permitted manoeuvres available to reduce the chances of an accident while allowing our inspection team to focus on the job at hand – safely. The system has ‘Return to home’ function that upon selection, returns the access platform to the initial rest position while the ‘Work Function’ ensures that the platform follows the necessary activation steps to correctly open the boom and avoid any collision damage.


Our mobile access platform offers many advantages over other methods of access solution including ‘Up & Over’ access which, thanks to the height and reach of the platform, means that it can access complicated roofing and building structures such as Church Spires more easily. This can make it an invaluable solution for external building cleaning on historic and complex building structures (as well as statues). The compact dimensions of the access truck means that even on the tight and twisty streets so common in Towns across Scotland, we can still access the necessary ‘at height’ points.
