Spider Rope Access – Industrial Abseiling for Maintenance

Spider Rope Access – Industrial Abseiling for Maintenance
21 October 2021

When it comes to maintaining tall buildings, whether it's leak investigation, exterior painting or pest control, professional industrial abseiling can be a great value solution.

An alternative to unsightly scaffolding, industrial abseiling allows professionals to carry out maintenance services at height and in difficult to access areas.

Spider Rope Access focuses on façade restoration & building maintenance in London and across the entire United Kingdom, working on iconic buildings such as Wardian in Canary Wharf and Moor House in central London.

They have recently delivered a condition survey for a high-end client at Northumberland Avenue, next to Trafalgar Square. After discovering major defects in the building, the next phase is to execute planned maintenance on the exterior facade of the building to preserve its life for years to come.
