Is rope access the solution?

As someone who’s looking to get the best deal and the best service possible, you’ll likely be wondering why you should choose a rope high access system for your next project. After all, if scaffolding is an option, as well, why not just go with that?

It’s important to realise that every project is different. No one high-access solution will always be the right one, and instead, you should evaluate each project on an individual basis, assessing the pros and cons for each as you decide which choice makes the most sense. Sometimes, you may want to go for scaffolding, while at other times, a specialty lift service is the right option.

In many cases, however, rope access services offer advantages that other systems just can’t compare to, making them the clear choice. With this in mind, we recommend rope access for your window cleaning service or maintenance services over any type of MEWPs or scaffold where access is difficult and could be time consuming and expensive.

Today, the application of Industrial rope access can be seen in most major cities, large towns or industrial complexes around the world. There are many reasons for the growth in the use of rope access in these locations.

Rope access services are very popular with building managers, environmental services personnel and city authorities.
