Rope Access is one of our key services in the Inspection and Maintenance of UK infrastructure. Stroma Specialist Access provides difficult access services for Rail, Highways, Buildings, Culverts, Masts & Towers and other types of structure. As one of the founder members of IRATA (the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association) all our rope access technicians are fully trained to provide a safe and efficient service to our clients.
Rope Access solutions are a vital means of inspecting and maintaining structural assets when more traditional means of access are impossible or extremely costly. It allows an inspector to safely gather data about the structural integrity of a rail bridge, highways bridge or other asset. Speed and flexibility combined with the safest method of working at height makes rope access the preferred choice for inspection and maintenance work. It also provides a time and cost-effective alternative to scaffolding.
Our experience in Rope Access includes:
Rope access equipment is extremely lightweight and portable allowing rapid set up and removal. Our highly trained rope access technicians are able to abseil or safely descend into the correct location as well as safely lowering any material and equipment. The flexibility of rope access equipment enables a faster completion than conventional access methods and generates vital cost savings.
Stroma Specialist Access believed in a ‘safety first’ approach for our clients and it was important to us that this became the industry standard. In the late 1980s (as HRS Services) we helped to form IRATA. We are proud that our pioneering rope access techniques are now regarded as the safest method of carrying out difficult access works.
Thomasons have used Stroma (formerly HRS Services) for rope access surveys on dozens of occasions over many years and have always received an excellent service.
