Why Choose Rope Access for Building Maintenance?

Using rope access techniques and equipment is really the quickest, safest and most efficient method to access every inch of a building or structure. It enables us to perform building maintenance jobs in a much shorter timeframe than traditional access methods, such as scaffolding, which is unsightly, disruptive and takes days to erect before work can even commence. Even powered access, as provided by cherry pickers or scissor lifts, is costly to hire and requires adequate space and flat ground around the building to provide workers with access. Even then, these methods can’t always access all parts of the building, especially high-rises, skyscrapers and complexly shaped structures.

In many cases, the cost of these traditional techniques far outweighs the size of the job required and as a result, routine building maintenance and cleaning can become neglected. Our multi-disciplinary team of rope access technicians, on the other hand, can get any building maintenance, repairs and external refurbishment job done efficiently and on time, without the expense of hiring scaffolding and/or powered access and without disrupting the building’s functionality.
