Rope Access has multiple applications from fabric maintenance to inspection and from protective coatings to stand by rescue. The list is almost endless. In industry, it is common for the cost of creating access to be greater than the value of the work executed from the access created. Rope Access methods address this issue. Caledonia’s Rope Access technicians are skilled and competent tradespeople first and rope access technicians second. In traditional access methodologies different workgroups provide access to others who carry out the task. Rope Access changes the game with the technicians with the trade skills creating their own access. This reduces the number of personnel required for the scope and results in reduced costs associated with expensive travel to sites and pressure on frequently scarce accommodation. Despite the claims of some, Caledonia know rope access is not universally the optimum access solution. Rope Access is only one of several access solutions we provide to our customers. You can rely on our experience and expertise to ensure that we work hard to understand your needs and provide you with the best access solution possible.
