When a building requires maintenance and is high rise, there are usually only two options available to obtain high access: scaffolding or  rope access.  We all know building maintenance is costly, so it’s important to consider your options carefully before deciding which is best.

Safety First
Independently certified rope access technicians uphold an exceptional safety record which makes it one of the safest jobs in the whole construction industry. The rope access profession is highly trained trade, by choosing the rope access method you will be paying for a operative trained to a government body such as IRATA; which is fully recognised by the HSE.

Business as Usual

Scaffolding is extremely bulky and takes up a lot of space, it is built from the ground up and can affect access to the building.  Scaffolding can caused difficulty for clients or employees to enter or exit the building.   On the other hand, rope access technicians work from the top down, causing less disruption to the building facades or building entrance.
Time is Money
Relatively speaking the longer a job takes, the more money it costs the business.  A large percentage of a scaffolding quote is labour costs, setting up and breaking down.  Rope access methods massively undercut a scaffolding quote as there are very little expenses other than the labour and the materials to carry out the maintenance.  As you begin to compare quotes on higher buildings between the two options, rope access becomes even more attractive.Aesthetics, who wants an eye sore?
Unlike scaffolding, rope access creates very little architectural impact.  Scaffolding is not only costly,  it’s an eyesore and will not go unnoticed whilst it is in place.  Rope access equipment requires little set up and space and will not make you stand out like a sore thumb for all the wrong reasons.
Environmentally Friendly
Rope access Techniques has minimal effect on the surrounding environment, in comparison to traditional scaffolding access methods.Versatility & Flexibility
Rope access methods are extremely flexible and versatile.  Rope access techniques do not require a large amount of open space beneath the work space in order to set up scaffolding equipment so extremely difficult to reach places can still be accessed.
