About Our Corporation

Battalion is a work-at-heights specialist company that seeks to provide its clients the best and most effective way to do work at heights.

Battalions at height was founded in 2011 by Daniel Makua. We started doing work in Johannesburg using rope access and ladders to reach elevated positions. We saw the opportunity to change the rope access industry as it was very small at the time.

We started as a company providing solutions while working with rope access. Throughout our experiences, we realised scaffolding, rope access and elevated platforms were in competition with each other, despite being used to perform the same thing. That is when we sought to obtain all these capabilities in order to avoid the competition.

We provide all the common services required at heights, and we are able to accomplish them using different work-at-heights mechanisms
