Why use rope access for cleaning, maintenance, or inspections?

Performing maintenance on buildings and other structures at heights can be tricky, expensive, and time-consuming. Furthermore, most traditional solutions such as scaffolding or powered access is unsightly and extremely disruptive to your business.

The effort, cost, time, and disruptive nature of these traditional techniques often create an environment where facilities managers are loathe to fix the problem resulting in essential cleaning and maintenance being neglected and costs compounding over the long run.

Rope access by contrast is easy to organize, cost effective and significantly faster. We offer cost-effective solutions for customers in Cape Town a well as the broader Western Cape.

Rope access offers a better solution than working with scaffolding

Rope Access offers a faster, easier, less troublesome solution for building/structure maintenance when compared to scaffolding. Unlike with scaffolding, rope access requires far less space to set up, is far more flexible regarding accessing the problem areas, is faster to set up and cheaper than hiring and constructing large scaffolding structures.

Rope access is better than using machines and powered access

When compared to powered access options such as scissor lifts/arial lifts or cherry pickers, rope access offers a more versatile and cost-effective solution since with all these methods, you still need a large enough flat area at the base of the building/structure to get those machines in place. More than that, these machines are generally quite expensive to hire.
