Rope access is a form of work positioning, initially developed from techniques used in climbing and caving, which applies practical ropework to cater for the various needs of industry. We are able to provide specialist staff who have solid experience in all types of work.
The industry has an exemplary safety record which derives from rigorous adherence to the following safety characteristics: training requirements produce professional, highly aware technicians.
A rope access technician always has attachments, each having an independent anchorage point.
When the worker is supported by ropes,each of the worker’s ropes will have a fail-safe descent mechanism.
All secondary tools and equipment (e.g. drills, sealant, etc.) are attached by lanyards to worker’s harness.
A minimum of two technicians are required for any job.
All technicians are independently assessed.
Training includes rescue procedures.
All equipment is regularly inspected and maintained.
Codes of practice and working systems have been carefully refined over the years by the HSE and IRATA.
This approach has meant very few accidents since the beginning of this activity nearly fifteen years ago and NO Accidents for us and Rope Access can generate considerable savings because:
Rapid installation and dismantling of the access systems causes minimal disruption to building occupants, pedestrians and traffic flow.
Rope systems can be installed and dismantled quickly which means they are removed from site at the end of each shift. This minimizes potential for vandalism/theft.
Single contact point for the client. Roped access technicians provide both access and undertake the required work.
A practical, safe solution with the ability to solve awkward and troublesome problems that might otherwise absorb a disproportionate amount of time and money.
This is a highly experienced and well trained team of Rope Access specialists who can undertake almost any task in any location.
Here are some of the tasks we have undertaken in the past.
