Rope Access

Rappel specializes in rope access – a method of work at height that utilizes ropes and harnesses to access locations rather than building scaffold, MEWP’s, etc.

All Rappel technicians are ticketed under either IRATA (Industrial Rope Access Trade Association) or SPRAT (Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians).

Our Trades based work force is typically crewed with ~75% Level 3 rope access supervisors at any one time, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to every job.

With our safe and innovative method of work at height - work scopes that previously took days and weeks, now take hours and days with Rappel.

Transportation & Utilities

Rappel are a valuable asset to infrastructure shared by many utilities including gas, road, rail and hydro organizations.
Bridges and Aerial Crossings: From suspension bridges to trusses, Rappel have experience across a variety of structures. Our method of work reduces traffic impediment whilst providing a safe, efficient method of working at height and over water.
Lift Stations: Rope access is well suited to providing mechanical work solutions within public or private lift stations, be it valve replacements or welding in new pipe. Our work method is safe, fast and effective.
Compressor and Pump Stations: Congested stations limit the use of MEWP’s for work at height, yet Rappel can access anywhere within your facility in under 60 minutes. See our services to find out what we can do for your facility.
Hydro & Power Infrastructure: Penstocks, spillways, powerhouses and stacks are areas that Rappel can execute a wide variety of work scopes. Our safe, efficient method of performing work at height has another key factor – it significantly reduces equipment down time and production loss, due to the efficient nature of the rope access system.
