Rope Access is a type of suspended access system. The main differences between rope access and other types of suspended access is that in rope access:
A harness is incorporated as the primary means of attachment to the person
The person is suspended directly by the rope, not indirectly as in the other types
The system uses two separately secured systems, one as a means of access, egress and work positioning, and the other as back-up security
In addition to being a suspended access system, the system is also a personal protective system
The working line and safety line are static, i.e. the operative moves up and down the lines and is not raised or lowered by them
Industrial Rope Access techniques offer a comprehensive range of work at height solutions for tasks in difficult access areas, ranging from UHP blasting, construction and fabrication, painting, NDT inspections, lifting, concrete rehabilitation, waterproofing, bird proofing and rigging.
