Rope Access

Rope Access

In recent years, Altrad has developed unrivalled expertise in rope access and abseiling techniques onshore and offshore. We hold numerous IRATA (Industrial Rope Access Trade Association) memberships globally and provide specialist services including architectural remedial work, structural repairs, fabric inspection and maintenance.

We can provide everything a customer needs to undertake work in the most restrictive areas. The systems we use are quick to mobilise and de-mobilise, reducing labour costs by up to 30% and offer a safe, flexible and incredibly cost-effective alternative to traditional access methods.

The internationally recognised safest system

Our multi-discipline employees are subject to continuous assessment, audit, training and re-certification in accordance with the IRATA International Code of Practice (ICOP) & Training Assessment and Certification Scheme (TACS) This way we know that Cape always has the most suitably qualified and multi-skilled staff for the job and can carry out rope access work to the most exacting Health & Safety standards.

Accreditations and quality standards

  • OHSAS 18001 (health and safety)
  • ISO 14001 (environmental)
  • ISO 9001 (quality)

The comprehensive Altrad Management System ensures strict compliance in everything we do.

A customer-centric service

Altrad’s business is built on customer-focused relationships, underpinned by intelligence and understanding. For each and every job, we analyse the task in hand and allocate the most relevant multi-skilled operatives, so our customers can call on a workforce that’s tailored to their individual requirements and quality controlled by Altrad. We provide a single point of contact and full management responsibility, by backing up our ever-expanding array of multi-disciplinary services with a single “bundled services” package. It’s all about delivering cost-effective solutions, on time, to the highest standards of safety performance and creating strong and long-lasting ties with each and every one of our customers.
