Benefits of Rope Access

There are many aspects to using rope access which are of benefit to the client. Below, we have created a brief bullet point list to demonstrate just a selection of these.

  • Cost effective - In the majority of cases roped access techniques are far more cost effective than the conventional means of scaffolding or cherry picker.
  • This is especially true if a larger area has to be covered such as spot pointing, replacing a block here or there and conducting in-depth condition surveys.
  • It is unobtrusive - This is especially important at historical sites such as castles and monuments or churches where weddings and funerals are a common occurrence, and the public have general access.
  • Keep Public places open while work commences.
  • Versatile - Small areas are cordoned off on a rolling programme. Again, this is especially important where there is visitor access such as Rievaulx Abbey, Bodiam castle etc. In fact, roped access can be a visual attraction as it is, basically, one or two people hanging off of a rope.
  • Quick and efficient to set up, access work and takedown.
  • Environmentally friendly.
  • Safe and easy to manage, being tamper proof as ropes tied away at the end of each work period.
