    Works Carried Out

    This apartment block is cleaned by our team of qualified Abseil Rope Access Technicians (Abseilers), they use rope access techniques to clean all external windows. On this particular building we mobilise our dead-weight trolley systems due to there being no suitable anchor/rigging points on the roof. Adverse weather conditions also need to be considered when carrying out works on this development.

    Before we carry out any work, comprehensive site-specific Risk Assessments & Method Statements are provided along with a full Health and Safety information pack.
