Rope Access, which literally means “rope access”, is a combination of rope and positioning techniques to get to and from a high or hard-to-reach work location as safely and efficiently as possible.
The primary objective of rope access techniques is to plan the work safely and carefully to exclude all possible accidents, dangerous situations, or damage to objects and surroundings. Like any other method of working at height, the application of rope access techniques should be regarded as a complete system in which planning, management, authorization, and other necessary facilities should be treated with equal care.
The main advantages of using these access experts are that they can be positioned safely and quickly at a workplace. A scaffold, crane, or aerial platform is often an obstacle that can cause many inconveniences. With rope access, the impact on the current business processes is often minimal; there are no risks of obstacles, and the costs for the entire project are considerably reduced.
Rope access techniques have many advantages:
We can position ourselves quickly and efficiently at any work location It is the safest way to work at heights, confined spaces, or above water Causes little or often even hindrance to current business processes Our rope access technicians can combine multiple disciplines It does not cause any damage or nuisance to the environment and surroundings Applying for permits is often not a requirement.
Rope access where to apply
After abseiling was developed in mountaineering, it was quickly used in the offshore industry. Employing rope access, employees were able to perform all necessary work on, among other things, drilling rigs safely above water or other difficult-to-reach locations. Rope access is safe and efficient, but avoiding scaffolding and cranes, is also a great asset for maintenance work for the environment. The possibilities and advantages for rope access were quickly recognized, and so the techniques were applied immediately on land after the introduction at sea.
Rope access is used very widely these days. When it comes to high-rise buildings, historic preservation or (process) industry. Inspection or maintenance work at height, above water or in small spaces, rope access techniques are perfect for carrying out the desired work quickly and efficiently.
Rope access can be applied in”
Industrial environments Construction industry Maritime and Offhore Conservation of monuments Non-residential construction
The use of rope access techniques provides an alternative to working with traditional methods such as scaffolding or mobile lifting platforms. Strives to find appropriate, safe, and effective access solutions to support its inspection, industrial maintenance, and NDT services while carrying out other works that take advantage of this technique. Our technicians are IRATA trained, the highest level of certification worldwide, which gives them the necessary expertise to carry out such works in complete safety.
In today’s industrial world, demands of efficiency, competitiveness, and environmental protection are rising faster than ever before. We are looking for people with great enthusiasm for service and technology who also feel challenged by the requirements outside the office building. We look forward to your application.
