Industrial rope access is a form of work positioning developed from techniques originally used in rock climbing, traditionally called abseiling. Such techniques modified for industrial application allow highly trained technicians a means of accessing remote or difficult work location safely and efficiently.
Many different tasks can be performed on almost any structure whether it is the underside of an offshore oil rig, outside of a high rise building, top of a flare stack chimney, or whatever traditional means of accessing are difficult and expensive.
Most importantly for our clients, the techniques allow rapid deployment, minimum disruption to their business and will usually be much more cost effective than traditional access methods.
