What is Industrial Rope Access?

Industrial Rope Access is an exceptionally safe method of work positioning on very high structures or at inaccessible areas. It is performed by skilled technicians who are specially trained and certified in high-angle rope work techniques. Rope Access had its origin in climbing/caving, but has since been adapted and enhanced to become an internationally recognized Trade that enables the performance of various types of work at industrial, commercial, and institutional locations, in either outdoor or indoor settings

More technically, Industrial Rope Access encompasses a combination of techniques wherein ropes and specialized hardware are used as the primary means to access tall structures or inaccessible areas and support workers at height. Typically, a two-rope system is utilized: one rope to support the worker and a second rope to provide a safety backup as fall protection.

Modern Industrial Rope Access equipment, techniques, and training combine to produce an exceptionally safe, versatile, efficient, cost-effective way to solve vertical access problems.
