3 Benefits of Rope Access Maintenance

For many years, it has been difficult to provide exterior maintenance of tall buildings due to the lack of access available. Complex façades with challenging access routes are now reachable with innovative Work at Height systems that allow trained Rope Access technicians to safely abseil down the façade of a building to complete maintenance tasks.

Last updated: 08/02/2021

Take a look at our three benefits…


  • Cost-effective: Rope Access services are fast and efficient, meaning maintenance tasks can be completed in a quicker timeframe – resulting in minimum budgetary expenditure with more time to focus on core business activity. This can be essential for smaller businesses, as there tends to be an even greater emphasis on spending budgets wisely.


  • Safety: Heightsafe have always guaranteed that Rope Access technicians undergo lengthy training to ensure they are skilled to the highest of standards – with a high focus on tool control, safe ways of working and rescue plans written by experts, safety is never compromised. There can be no let-up in Work at Height safety, so our operatives receive hours of training with certification so that there is minimal risk to human life when they are carrying out projects at a height.


  • Flexibility: in the UK we are all too familiar with inclement weather, and when Working at Height this needs to be a major consideration. Rescheduling MEWPs (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms) can quickly become an expensive and logistical challenge, especially at short notice. When opting for Rope Access in your PPM schedule, the flexibility of service delivery can easily be met by Heightsafe’s market-leading Compliance Testing department.
