What is Rope Access?
Rope Access is a technique for working at height where ropes and other associated equipment is primarily used to provide access to difficult areas that require work to be performed. Rope access allows workers to reach a difficult destination easily, be suspended while work is in operation, and exit efficiently and securely.

Why uses Rope Access?
Rope access is safe. The technique itself is a redundant system where two ropes are employed. With proper planning, management, training, and execution, rope access is a safe system for accessing high work areas.
Rope access is unobtrusive. Because of the nature of the technique, rope access allows workers to perform work with minimal impact on the environment and surrounding areas. Whether the work is hanging off a residential building or off the side of a mountain, the process of work from beginning to end leaves little to no footprint.
