WHY USE ROPE ACCESS?

UMC utilise Rope Access trained NDT technicians for Structural Inspection and Survey work.

Rope Access is a safe, efficient and time saving method derived from recreational climbing and caving but modified to utilise a twin rope system for enhanced safety in industrial use. This makes it the access method of choice for our industry, thus eliminating the need for costly and time consuming scaffolding.

It has been a preferred method of access (ingress and egress) for our clients offshore over conventional scaffolding for some of the following reasons:

  • Easy and time efficient to set up (rigging and de-rigging)
  • Lightweight and portable equipment
  • Does not take up space
  • Practicality in a number of applications
  • Minimum operational team of two operatives (three when over water)
