Rope Access

Access solutions can make significant differences to cost efficiencies and quality on a job. Rope access is one method which can be employed to access elevated areas and confined spaces safely and efficiently, gaining advantage over conventional methods such as scaffold.

Wescott are certified to IRATA standards and provide multi-skilled rope access technicians for your works. Our qualified technicians are highly experienced, and our teams are always hand-picked to match the requirements of the scope, be it maintenance or remediation works, specialist installations, inspections, or safety advice. Our teams have a vast knowledge base and the skills to ensure projects are delivered on time and within budget. 

Maintaining your structure - our rope access team are the experts

Specific rope work has become a specialised offering of Wescott’s, to reach areas which may not have been accessible by other means. This has been developed in order to maximise our reach to inaccessible areas within the work environment. 

Rope access equipment is lightweight and able to be removed in rapid time, which offers greater flexibility and speed, and therefore making rope access a preferred method of access for many difficult sites allowing a variety of tasks to be undertaken. Each project is given the ‘Safe and Best practice’ approach ensuring all work is carried out to the highest safety standards.

Ropes access has the advantage of:

  • Servicing difficult to reach areas
  • Complete any type of maintenance work without setting up timely and costly access structures.
  • Thorough inspections
  • Minimal disruption to productivity
  • Time and budget effectiveness
  • No cumbersome equipment needed
  • Due to the nimbleness of rope access we can reach any area that needs attention 

Inspections via Ropes

Our team are experts in performing inspections using rope access with minimal disruption to operations, as there are shorter timeframes to execute an inspection. We can conduct a range of surveys that rely solely on rope access, from visual only to in depth tactile investigations. Our inspectors will thoroughly examine; corrosion/dimensional analysis and condition/testing of metal and concrete structures.

The breadth of our versatility to inspect is wide:

  • Oil and gas installations
  • Storage tanks / Access Towers
  • Ventilation storage shafts
  • Tunnels
  • Chimneys
  • Masts
  • Pylons
  • Jetties and Bridges
  • Wind turbines
