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.

Facilities Manager

Spectrum are unique because of the range of services they provide. Their knowledge, how fast they respond to questions posed from residents and their can do attitude.


Facilities Manager

Spectrum used a ladder-less gutter cleaning system which was able to reach our gutters approximately 12m above the ground. The ladder-less gutter cleaning method meant we didn’t have to hire a cherry-picker or scaffolding, which would have been expensive and time-consuming to install and use. Spectrum staff were able to show us video recordings of the inside of the gutters during and after the clean, and also emailed the footage to us once the work was complete. Spectrum have been professional, polite and thorough in their work and I would highly recommend Spectrum for their gutter cleaning service.
