Why rope access might be the safest access method to complete your project

Sometimes the design of a building or restrictions at ground level mean that that the higher levels cannot be safely accessed from the ground.  Our rope access service can offer a solution for high rise buildings with difficult access.  Example  scenarios where rope access may be the safer and more practical option for accessing your high level areas are;

  • High levels of traffic at ground level make it unsafe for a MEWP to set up.
  • The area below does not have sufficient safe load limit to allow access equipment to safely set up.
  • There is not enough space to set up an access platform at ground level.
  • Obstructions below your work area mean access equipment can’t be set up.
  • Construction design manuals may dictate that the building was designed to have rope access.
  • No knock on implications for example road closures for using a MEWP.

Our rope access team have experience of a wide variety of buildings, supplying rope access services to universities, health care, commercial, residential and government sector.  If you would like to find out more about our rope access service or if you would like a free survey of your building, please contact us.
