Technical rope access services are a good way to add height to any construction site by creating more vertical space. Using scaffold platforms or ladders to reach higher areas can be dangerous, slow and inconvenient. That is where rope ladders can be very useful. Imperium Building Services Ltd can be used to safely construct structures or support work on the ground.
There are different types of rope ladders available. One of them is the ‘personal retractor rope ladder’. This type of rope ladder is mainly used for access purposes on personal or commercial buildings. It is made of nylon webbing and features a handle on the side for easy carrying and deployment.
The other popular type of rope ladder is the ‘stretch’ rope ladder. This is a large, strong rope that is stretched taut over a platform. It is usually used to support heavy cables or to help scaffold work. The rope is very strong and durable, but you need to use the right system to get the job done.
In some cases, you may not have much choice. If you do have a choice, you might find it easier to just hire a professional rope ladder company to install the rope ladders for you instead. Companies that provide rope ladder installation services have been licensed to do so and have expertise at the job. They will ensure that your new rope ladder is correctly installed, tested and maintained. Plus, hiring such a company will allow you to choose from a wide range of different rope ladders. This is important as different applications might require different types of technical rope access services.
For example, you might require a rope ladder to use on a steel structure. Such a ladder would not be suitable if you were to use regular scaffolding or other lighter materials due to the weight and balance issues. A rope ladder, on the other hand, can be used on anything from aluminum beams to wooden beams thanks to its ability to be suspended without the need for heavy scaffolding systems. And, of course, with a rope ladder, you can easily move it around without having to worry about getting it stuck, which could be potentially dangerous.
Even if you do not require as much protection as you would when using a scaffold, you still need to consider how safe a rope ladder is before you decide to hire one to install for you. Make sure you check the ropes for signs of damage and wear and tear. It is also a good idea to call the manufacturer to ask questions about any possible defects in the rope. As well as this, make sure that the service provider you contact is licensed and insured, just to make sure that in case anything were to happen to your rope, you are covered.
