A quick overview of our rope access solutions

Rapidly becoming one of the most modern, safe and cost-effective approaches to working at height, rope access allows skilled technicians to reach restricted areas without the need for heavy plant or scaffolding.

And, because we employ multi-skilled and highly motivated IRATA-trained technicians, Access North Structures is one of the UK’s leading providers of this niche methodology.

Using techniques developed from climbing, caving and abseiling, our rope access experts skilfully navigate their way around incredibly tall and complex structures including roofs, chimneys, bridges, towers, high rise buildings, roller-coasters, tensile canopies, ETFE roofs and more. With a truly multi-disciplined team, we are equipped to tackle everything from inspection reports and surveys, to system installations, maintenance and cleaning.

The result is turnkey work-at-height support which is efficient, safe, eco-friendly, affordable and non-disruptive.

Some frequently asked questions


Maintenance & inspections

Routine & efficiency

Are you tired of unexpected repair bills? Are your buildings and structures becoming a little unsightly? Is unplanned maintenance work causing a disruption to your business?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we recommend you consider a planned, preventative maintenance regime. A more proactive approach to keeping your structures clean, safe and in optimum condition won’t just overcome the hassle and risk of sporadic repairs. It will also keep ongoing maintenance costs under control.

The height and/or complexity of the structure will pose no inconvenience to our rope access specialists. We can even work safely in tricky weather conditions and geographical locations that some conventional construction firms may shy away from. Whatever the scenario, attention to detail is always paramount.

Talk to us about your specific requirements, and perhaps we could arrange a visit to look at your structure for ourselves.
