Why Rope Access is More Beneficial

Using Rope Access, allows the technicians to access the work area from the top. This minimizes the requirement for machine operated plant, which in turn reduces environmental impact such as noise, vibrations and toxic fumes.

The versatility Rope Access provides, is the ability to access any area in a safe and controlled manner. Regardless of where the location is, Rope Access rigging techniques allows technicians to access to most hard to reach or narrowest of areas.

Rope Access allows technicians to access work sites in a number or ways, which conventional work at height methods to not. Technicians can safely climb to almost location they need to be, or the can utilize stairs, lifts and ladders to access areas where they can rig a set of ropes, and repel down to the location they are required to work at.

As there is no requirement for ground setup, Rope Access saves time by utilizing existing access methods, such as ladders, stairs or lifts to gain access to the top of the building and rig the ropes or rigging system required to access the work site. Once this is setup, all the technicians need do is to repel down and start work.
