Rope Access & Fall Arrest
Battalions at heights can provide a variety of services using rope access. We also provide fall preventions systems for your technicians working at heights.
Rope access is a work positioning method that uses ropes to allow workers to reach difficult to reach locations. Technicians can descend, ascend and move laterally while suspended on their harness's. Technicians can be able to perform their trades such as inspections, concrete repairs, welding et cetera without the use of traditional platforms such as scaffolding or suspended platforms.
Fall Arrest systems prevent technicians from failing in the form of guard rails, lifelines, safety catch nets and more. Work is performed on a platform the technician can manoeuvre on; however, the risk of falling is mitigated using a fall arrest or fall prevention system. Anchorage is very critical for fall arrest systems. Anchorage works closely with rope access, as this is the base where ropes are rigged.
