Rope Access


Rope access is a specialized technique used for working at heights or in hard-to-reach areas where traditional access methods like scaffolding or cherry pickers may not be practical.

Our in-house rope access team are highly trained and certified in rope access techniques. Our technicians are proficient in a wide range of rope access skills, which allow us to access and work on structures at height in a safe and efficient manner. Sicon Group’s Rope Access team are skilled in rope rigging, knot tying, anchor systems, and safety procedures.

High-story exterior building painting involves the application of protective coatings to the exterior surfaces. This requires specialized equipment and techniques to ensure even coverage and quality finishes.

Building repairs at heights may include tasks such as concrete repair, structural reinforcement, window replacements, and facade maintenance. Rope access techniques are used for access and positioning, while skilled technicians perform the required work.

Safety is paramount in rope access work. Technicians are trained to adhere to stringent safety protocols.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) such as harnesses, helmets, and fall arrest systems are mandatory. Rigorous safety assessments and job-specific risk assessments are conducted before commencing any work. Safety checks and regular equipment inspections are routine practices.

Rope access technicians are proficient in various techniques, including

  • Rigging: Setting up anchors and rigging systems to support workers and equipment.
  • Anchor Systems: Establishing secure anchor points for ropes and equipment.
  • Rope Transfer: Moving horizontally or vertically along ropes to access different parts of a structure.
  • Rescue: Being trained and equipped to conduct self-rescue or rescue of fellow technicians in the event of an emergency.

The choice of technique depends on the specific task and the structure’s configuration.
