Why Rope Access?

Rope access is a quick and cost effective alternative to scaffolding, towers and cherry pickers for difficult work positioning. Rope Access techniques can replace traditional solutions and provide significant financial and time savings.

  • Rope systems are quick to install and dismantle.
  • Rope access offers better flexibility for scheduling work.
  • Rope access often allows other trades to continue working.

Alpinus Rope Access prides itself on its adaptability, enabling it to meet the precise needs of clients and to provide specialist rope access to a broad range of commercial and industrial applications across the UK. We individually assess and present a comprehensive feasibility study for every project. The feasibility study is also used to assemble the most experienced team of rope access specialists for your project and ensures you only pay for the level of skills required for your project.

The primary benefits of rope access are Safety, Cost and Flexibility

  • The certainty of safe working on a twin-rope system with two points of contact – Alpinus Rope Access teams provide both the safe means of access and undertake the work
  • Rapid set-up and dismantling – minimal disruption to building occupants, pedestrians and traffic flow.
  • No security risk on site – all equipment removed overnight and no structure that might allow criminal use or vandalism
  • The assurance that comes from employing a well-trained and supervised work force operating to effective and proven guidelines
  • Alpinus Rope Access prepares a Method Statement and Risk Assessment for every project. This will explain exactly what they will do, how they will do it and detail particular safety precautions
  • Every job is carried out to HSE guidelines, which require a double rope system and failsafe devices. Every rope access specialist is highly experienced and fully trained to the highest level. Protective safety netting can be used where necessary.
  • Generally the only requirement is internal access to the roof to find suitable anchor points (lift housings, fire escapes, structural steelwork)
  • Provides a cost saving through the elimination or reduction of scaffolding or mobile elevated work platforms.
