Case Studies

Heightsafe’s team were tasked with providing a safe solution for the maintenance of a premium building in Mayfair that comprises of 10,322 square metres of office, retail and residential space, 6 luxury flats, and 3 underground basements.

The location of the property is in a prestigious and historical area of London, and therefore required a visually sensitive system that would not take away from the local heritage.

Following serious consideration and advice from Heightsafe’s specialists, the client opted for the installation of 22 Davit Arms – allowing for skilled Rope Access technicians to complete maintenance requirements safely. As these systems are portable they can be removed out of site when not in use, ensuring the historical aesthetics of the location is not affected.


Did you know? Due to the load capacity that suspended access systems support, it is a legal requirement to have them tested for compliance twice annually, and 6 monthly for rope access.
