Confined Spaces Inspection was once a dangerous, time consuming and high risk service.

But with the advancement in drone inspection technology, we are now able to offer a class leading confined spaces inspection service across Scotland and the North of England using our specialised indoor / confined spaces aerial drone that comes equipped with a surrounding cage to allow it to easily navigate through small and difficult to access locations that would be either impossible or to high risk for human access.  Our Confined Spaces aerial drone can be used for inspection of voids, tanks, culverts, pipes and lots more.

Our indoor Elios 2 drone can access confined spaces and indoor inspection spaces.

At Balmore Inspection Services, we run a fleet of aerial drones that are tailored for unique survey tasks. From drones specifically kitted out for flying in populated areas (ideal of building inspection in City Centres) to ones that can conduct Oil Platform inspections in the North Sea. And when it comes to confined spaces inspection, we have a specific indoor drone equipped with protective roll cage. Using the latest in drone technology, our confined spaces drone surveys can be conducted in complete darkness as the drone is fitted with powerful LED lighting. It can be equipped with thermal imaging cameras and HD Video equipment. So whether you need a drone to inspect difficult to access building structures or internal piping that is too small for a human to fit – our confined spaces drones are perfect for the job.

How does it work?

The spherical cage protects our Elios 2 advanced drone from impacts and the drone design allows for super fast course corrections to navigate through even the toughest obstacle course of pipes, rubble and more.  The entire drone is mounted on a retractable structure that helps to protect the camera recording equipment from any potential frontal shocks.

With an incredibly small packaging design at just under 40cm (15.7in), the Elios 2 aerial drone can easily fit into standard manholes, medium to large sized piping and similar spaces where inspections are required.

This advances aerial drone design and packaging is controlled through a powerful remote control system that does not require line of sight radio waves.  This means that we can operate the confined spaces indoor drone through walls and other obstacles. The wireless transmission system is state of the art to allow our confined spaces inspections to go further than ever before.

The Elios Aerial Indoor Drone comes complete with a full HD Camera, a thermal camera and on-board LED lighting system with adjustable intensity so that we can take high definition video, photos and survey shots regardless of the lighting conditions.
