Abseiling Window Cleaning in London and the South East

We have some of the most experienced and competent window cleaning rope access technicians in London. We use abseiling to reach and clean high level windows or windows that are inaccessible with other methods.

Gain Cost Efficiencies
This can be a very cost effective method which will not require any heavy machinery. When it comes to Health and Safety we know that this is the most important factor in our trade, and we have very strict health and safety policies for our Abseiliers and window cleaning Staff.

Some of the advantages of cleaning windows by abseil are: Access can be gained to work areas that would be impossible by any other means, for example sites above rivers, water, trees, or walls. There is no need for large flat ground areas beneath the work site.

Cleaning windows by abseil also has minimal disturbance to building occupants, pedestrians and traffic flow.

High Rise Abseiling Services FAQ.

Useful information and What you need to know.

Can I hire just one abseiler?

Abseiling Services requires a minimum of 2 abseiliers

What are the safe wind working conditions for abseiling?

Safe working conditions require that there is a safe working wind speed. Maximum speed is 23mph (IRATA International Guidelines).

What if I do not have a wind meter to measure wind speed?

If you do not have wind meter on site you can always use the cranes in the area around you as a guide. Although the safe workable wind speed varies from crane to crane, as a guide, the maximum wind speed at which lifting operations can take place is 10 metres per second (22 mph).

Therefore you could say if the wind speed is more than 22mph the cranes will not be in operation and the crane arm will be in an upright position.

Therefore you know if the cranes arms are usually up, that it likely the working conditions for abseiling are also unsafe.

What if I have no “eye bolts” or anchor points on my roof?

Not to worry, we have invested in our own specialist anchorage equipment that we can bring onto site and this allows us to abseil safely with minimal disturbance to your roof and is a cost effective solution if you have no eye bolts on your roof.

Can I have eye bolts installed? 

Yes we are certified to test and fit eye bolts. Call our team for a free quotation and survey.
