Rope Access 

What is rope access?

Rope Access is a technique which allows technicians to safely gain access to work in hard to reach areas using ropes and other required hardware. Vertigo Access Solutions Ltd is an accredited rope access company by trade. Once lowered into position, our technicians can then carry out any work which is required.

This method of working at height offers a number of benefits over traditional methods, and lends itself to a wide range of work like Painting ServicesSteam Cleaning and Pressure WashingGlazing, Curtain Walling and CladdingBuilding Inspection and Surveys and an array of other services.

Why rope access?

Rope access as a solution is not only a cheaper option compared to scaffolding, but it also causes far less disruption to the surrounding area than traditional scaffolding. Sometimes too, ropes are the only way to gain access to areas in situations above and below ground level, making rope access the only viable method of safely carrying out work on a building. Reduce cost, risk to property or surrounding areas using a safer and more cost-effective approach to working at a height.

Building surveys/inspections are a big part of the work carried out by Vertigo Access Solutions Ltd. Using ropes allows technicians to cover every inch of a building, or structure in a quick and cost effective way, and ultimately giving you a much better approach to tackling any work that may be required on your structure.
