Rope access allows for a wide variety of inspection and maintenance services at high elevations and other hard-to-reach areas.
As the name implies, rope access uses ropes and climbing techniques and is commonly used by industrial clients for inspection and maintenance. It is a cost-effective alternative to scaffolding and mechanical platforms.
There are many advantages to industrial rope access including rapid mobilisation, minimal set-up time and limited disruption to operation or service.
