Industrial rope access is over 25 years old. Its success is based on thorough training and strict work guidelines that deliver an unrivalled safe working record year after year. The environmental, efficiency and economic benefits have resulted in growing international support for industrial rope access ahead of alternative means of access.

What is Rope Access?

Rope Access is also known as commercial abseiling, industrial rope access or abseil cleaning. It is in many cases, one of the safest ways to complete a task that requires an operative to be working at height. Using a static working rope and a backup rope, operatives can position themselves virtually anywhere through the use of harness equipment and a suitably positioned anchor/anchors. It is a cost-effective way of accessing difficult to reach areas, and in most cases is a very fast way of carrying out maintenance as well as. Industrial rope access is a common choice for many high-rise cleaning and maintenance projects.

What can Rope Access be used for?

Rope Access can be used for a vast amount of building maintenance applications that require operatives to be working at height. This can range from our abseilers carrying out leak detection, waterproofing, glazing, banner installation, bird proofing, specialist cleaning, window cleaning, high-level window cleaning, render cleaning, facade inspections and so much more.

Rope Access can also be used for haulage, and is usually the strategy required in many RAMS that require operatives to be working at height.

Why would you choose Rope Access for your next maintenance project?

Industrial Rope Access methods have a proven track record as an eminently safe, cost-effective and flexible alternative to powered access systems or scaffolding.

Rope Access has many additional benefits, too, including being less invasive. This also results in minimal disruption to the operation of the building, the buildings occupants and the general public. As statistically the safest method of access, rope access achieves fewer reported incidents or accidents than any other form of construction activity.

At Spectrum we maintain our commitment to safety by ensuring:

All our operatives are fully trained to IRATA standards every 3 years and hold IPAF and CSCS cards, High or Medium Risk Confined Space certification and UKAS/UKATA Asbestos qualifications.

All our site supervisors hold IRATA Level 3, First Aid and SSSTS certification, as a minimum requirement.

All our projects are meticulously planned and managed in full accordance with IRATA ICOP'14, BS 7985:2013, BS ISO 22846 1&2, WAHR '05, HSWA '74, and all other relevant guidance, regulation and statute.
