ROPE ACCESS - THE BENEFITS



  • Using rope access provides an unobtrusive, cost effective access capability.

  • The number of man hours working at height can be vastly reduced when using rope access over traditional access methods.

  • Equipment used (i.e. ropes) can be installed and removed rapidly to ensure minimum disruption and therefore could help reduce overall lead times on projects, which in turn sees a reduction in project costs.

  • Other trades can continue their tasks without disruption at ground level, compared with other access methods, i.e. scaffolding.

  • Rope systems can be easily installed to reach almost all areas, which may not have been possible using conventional means.

  • Use of rope access could reduce further costs where there maybe need of road closures, i.e. busy shopping centres.

  • Rope access offers greater flexibility for rescheduling and can therefore take advantage of any weather conditions.

  • Due to the unobtrusive nature, rope access, can offer building owners less visual impact during operations, enabling them to retain their visual integrity.

  • The job application can be conducted in any shift on any day.

  • Rope access operatives can often accomplish in a matter of hours, work which previously took days to complete using conventional access methods.
