The benefits of rope access maintenance

Traditionally, large, cumbersome utilities were needed to access various points on a high-rise complex when maintenance was required.

Over the last few decades, many building managers and property owners have discovered that abseilers, known as rope access technicians, could provide a safer, more accurate, less costly and less disruptive solution to achieve the same objective.


A traditional height access worker would require a range of heavy civil machinery or apparatus to perform basic maintenance tasks, such as:

  • Height access platforms
  • Cherry pickers
  • Scissor lifts
  • Scaffolding
  • Cranes
  • and more

These utilities were expensive to hire and created safety hazards that affected building staff and bystanders, requiring disruption to foot traffic, safety signage, and safety control staff at the cost of building management.

A rope access technician requires no more than a safe anchor point on a structure and their abseiling equipment, which consists of a basic two-rope system, a harness, their ascending and descending control devices, and their trade tools.

While rope access technicians’ jobs may look dangerous to the untrained eye, rope access safety records are exemplary, especially compared to other height access methods.

High-efficiency maintenance

When using traditional height access methods, space would have to be made for the civil machinery, or large apparatus would have to be erected from a building’s edge to deploy a platform—this can take a lot of preparation and pack-down time.

Civil machinery may take hours to set up before any work can be started, and in the case of scaffolding, the preparation time could take a week or longer. However, on average, a rope access technician can be set up and on the job within approximately an hour, with pack-up time around the same.

For jobs where the work needs to be spanned over days or weeks, the machinery or equipment would have to remain set up, while rope access technicians can easily set up and pack down at the end of each work day. This makes rope access work a much more efficient method of performing high-rise maintenance.

A more cost-effective building maintenance service

The fact that rope access maintenance workers can work safer, with less equipment, and with more efficiency translates directly to the total of the invoice when the work is completed.

There is no additional equipment hire, no need to hire extra staff to monitor safety for bystanders, and little to no disruption to daily operations. This makes rope access maintenance the obvious choice when it comes to maintaining or reducing a building’s maintenance budget.

High-rise window cleaning

High-building window cleaning keeps your building looking its best and ensures that occupants and plant life in the building receive quality sunlight, creating a healthier, more productive environment for residents, workers, and pets.

Our high-rise window cleaning experts are some of the best in the business and are responsible for some of the most prominent buildings on the Sydney skyline.

Rope access glazing and window replacement

Just like ground-level buildings, window glass can get broken and sometimes need replacement of the full window structure. The dangers of glazing at heights may seem extreme; however, to our highly trained and skilled rope access glaziers and window technicians, it’s just another day on the job.

We provide a safer, more efficient way to perform window replacement and maintenance, getting your building back up to code in next to no time.

Rope access waterproofing

High-rise buildings are subject to high winds, extreme weather, and harsh U.V. radiation from the sun. This breaks down waterproofing applications over time, leaving your building prone to leaks that can make their way into occupied spaces and wreak havoc on utilities like air conditioning, electrical utilities, I.T. networks and more.

Our expert rope access caulking and sealing professionals have you covered, providing expert assessment and performance of waterproofing maintenance with skill and efficiency that is unique to rope access technicians.

Rope access painting and rendering

Rope access painting professionals are being used more and more as they have proven to be a more thorough, accurate and safe alternative to more high-rise painting maintenance.

Your high-rise paintwork does more than maintain your building’s aesthetics; it also helps to protect critical building structures from premature degradation from harsh sun and weather exposure.
