In the case of needing to work at heights, companies regularly turn to scaffolding or cranes without investigating alternative methods. Using ropes to access work at heights is economic in more ways than one: this exceptionally safe method is efficient in time and resources.

When a high-up issue needs to be addressed on a job site, it is extremely time-consuming to set up the appropriate scaffolding to reach it. This not only gives the issue time to worsen, it also uses up resources that could be otherwise allocated. Scaffolding or cranes are the most commonly used tools to access the hard-to-reach places; however, these are not necessarily the most time-efficient options.

Whether a big or small job, scaffolding requirements are expensive. In both dollars and staff resources, setting up and maintaining it is a significant cost; the cost of bringing in a crane is also high. On the other hand, putting a rope system into action simply requires appropriate equipment and training. With a couple of industry certified ropes, a rope access plan, a safe work plan, and appropriately trained individuals, these engineered systems are strong and well-proven to get the job done in a cost-effective manner. Quite simply, rope systems offer savings: clients spend ten to twenty percent on ropes what they would on scaffolding.

The use of ropes allows our team to get to the hard-to-reach spots safely and quickly. From there, any type of work is possible.
