We believe all buildings are accessible.

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.

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.
