Although rope access has been around since the early 1980s, it’s still relatively new as far as trades go. Most people who picture a rope access technician today probably think of window cleaners hanging off the edge of a building with their bucket and squeegee. That’s not inaccurate, but it’s only a tiny slice of the bigger picture. Professional abseilers today perform every variety of trade and craft; there are rope access welders, boilermakers, painters, carpenters, plumbers, and concreters. For this blog, we’re taking a close look at the different applications performed by our rope access technicians and how they can benefit you.
Modern-day high-rise buildings can stand many hundreds of metres tall and have a surface area of over 10,000 square metres. Rope access is by far the fastest and most affordable way to carry out close and careful inspections. With regular rope access inspections, you can identify potential problems before they cause structural damage requiring expensive repairs.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Having a clean and well-maintained facade says a lot about the kind of operation you are running. If you were hoping to attract tenants or investors, you wouldn’t set up an inspection without first making sure the interior was in good repair and sparkling clean. The same should be true for the exterior. Scheduling regular cleaning and maintenance of your building is the best way to make a good first impression. Leaving it too long, on the other hand, can devalue your property and lead to more labour-intensive and expensive work when you do eventually get around to it.
Rope access offers a safe, affordable, and fast alternative to traditional scaffolding or platform methods for welding. Whether your welding job includes complex schematics or straightforward retouching, you can rely on our technicians to perform intricate welding jobs in hard-to-reach areas.
Carpentry and Electrical Work
Whether your existing structure is in need of electrical repairs or you’re working on a new building, our rope access electricians and carpenters can help you get it done faster, quicker, and cheaper.
Why Choose Rope Access over Other Methods?
Since first emerging in the 1980s, rope access has superseded older methods such as scaffolding and platform access. Platform access has huge limitations in terms of maximum height, while scaffolding requires complex planning and the erection of equipment – as well as its eventual dismantling. This means that it is both more time consuming and more costly. It also poses more safety risks, as workers are required to be onsite and working at height for longer periods of time.
