What Is Rope Access?

Rope Access is the industries name to define Industrial Abseiling. Rope access if a form of access method initially developed used in climbing and caving.

The operative is supported by industrial static rope which he is suspended to by a harness. Rope access technicians can descend, ascend, and traverse ropes to access the right position, and work while suspended by their harness.

It is a great way to access difficult to reach locations and cost effective and time effective method to complete high level tasks.

  • Installation and maintenance of pigeon nets and pigeon spikes (pest control)
  • Painting and decorating rope access

Advantage of Using Rope Access Techniques

Rope Access is a primary alternative to using heavy machinery or scaffolding. It is much more cost effective than these other methods due to the safety and speed in which operatives can carry out their work.

The advantages of using Rope access lies in its capability to access difficult to reach locations at height swiftly and safely allowing operatives to carry out their tasks with minimal impact on the environment around them.

The rapid installation and removal of rope access systems has minimal impact on the environment around them; including the building structure, the building occupants and traffic flow on the ground. It gets around inconveniences and problems that scaffolding and heavy machinery can often cause.

Rope Access is a great access method because of its cost effectiveness it has compared to other access methods. Traditional access methods have many disadvantages; for example, scaffolding can be very expensive, slow to install, inconvenient, unattractive, a very real security risk, and can damage pavements and block emergency escape routes.

The speed of installing and removing our rope access systems delivers considerable savings over structural and mechanical access. Powered access platforms provide safety at height, but due to their size and restrictive mobility, do not always provide the best solution.
