Technical Rope Access Work

Safety Access & Rescue has a team of highly experienced rope access technicians & riggers able to take on virtually any type of technical rope access work. Our technicians are fully certified SPRAT (Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians) and/or IRATA (International Rope Access Trade Association) rope access operators.

All rope access work is done in accordance with ISO 22846 (the international rope access standard), AS/NZS 4488.1&2 (the Australian & New Zealand standard) and the SPRAT industry guidelines. Our work teams will always be administered by either a Level 2 (for basic sites) or a Level 3 supervisor.

Examples of the type of tasks our team may take on include:-
  • Technical & photographic/video inspections
  • Building maintenance
  • Window glass & façade cleaning
  • Bird spike installation
  • Remedial works
  • Power station boiler de-clinkering
  • Rendering, painting & gap sealing
  • Sign and banner installation & removal
  • Installation or removal of difficult objects or appliances from high rise buildings
  • Tower and mast cabling & appliance installation and removal

Modern rope access techniques allow for greater flexibility, cost and time effectiveness on all worksites. Rope access is statistically a very safe method of work compared to other forms of access such as scaffolding & elevated work platforms.
