Why is Rope Access so popular in London?

Rope access generally

Your property is prone to the structural damage that time and weathering can bring, but regular maintenance of your facade can avoid this from happening too soon, and can save you from cashing out costly repairs further down the line. Keeping on top of your building’s health will also ensure structural integrity and aesthetic appeal. It could also increase the value of your property if you’re wishing to sell it at some point in the future. We often have queries coming through with concerns of whether or not we can reach/access their complex builds, or request a maintenance service with a tight budget, and the solution to most of these queries is – rope access. Rope access services in London are a cost-effective alternative to scaffolding, and is immensely effective and efficient, and is actually our most preferred form of access. Our operatives are all IRATA trained which means that we can carry out specialist jobs, such as brick tinting and repointing, all via rope. This gives us the freedom to use our expert skills at any height and without the restriction that scaffolding can often bring, making us one of the very best building restoration companies in London.

Rope access in London is continuing to grow in popularity, and this is due to a variety of different reasons:

Allows business to continue as usual

Our rope access company in London allows freedom and adaptability when repairing and restoring properties. This means that a business/company or shop can stay open while work is carried out.

If a shop needs maintenance then scaffolding is usually erected which could result in the temporary closure of that shop, and lead to a huge loss of income. Rope access, however, solves this problem, its non-disruptive and flexible benefits allow businesses to continue to run as usual.


Not only does rope access in London save shops from losing business, but it also saves famous landmarks from being covered in ugly scaffolding.
