There are a number of property owners in Scotland who have very high buildings and are under the impression that the only way to conduct maintenance on that building is by erecting scaffolding.

So, is there a cheaper solution and best alternative to scaffolding? The answer is a definite YES! Industrial Abseiling or Rope Access.

Edinburgh Rope Access Is Better Than Scaffolding For Small Jobs

Rope Access In Edinburgh Beats Scaffolding For Small Jobs

Edinburgh rope access companies are in demand, and here at Edinburgh Stone Masons, we’re the leading provider.

Our clients often need work to be undertaken on the external walls of their buildings. The issue is, sometimes those buildings are taller than 2-3 stories.

There are only two real options in those situations, expensive scaffolding hire or enlisting an Edinburgh rope access company like us.

There are always costs involved with either option but rope access can be cheaper and also provide a range of other benefits.

Forget Scaffolding For Small Jobs On Tall Buildings

Forget about scaffolding if you want to save money and have a very tall building. Within Edinburgh, you need a permit to put up scaffolding which can prove expensive and involve a lot of paperwork. Thats because it requires a lot of street space and can be an eyesore in a city that prides itself on a beautiful and historic skyline.

Meanwhile, rope access requires no space and no laborious paperwork. Our highly-trained, expert tradespeople simply get up there and get the job done. That saves money, time and a lot of trouble for our clients!

Benefits of Rope Access Over Scaffolding

Cost is not the only benefit of enlisting Edinburgh Stonemasons to undertake rope access work for you. Perhaps obviously, a lot of time is saved too.

The longer a project takes (scaffolding takes a long time to build and break down), the more money you’ll spend and the longer your building will not be fit for its intended use.

Aside from reduced cost and increased speed, rope access also uses much less equipment, doest disrupt the street below and is therefore safer.

Although it surprises some of our clients to hear it, rope access work involves thorough training and certifications that regular builders who use scaffold don’t take.

The safety of our fully-certified rope access technicians is better than the safety of a builder who is new, or seasoned and complacent on a scaffolded site.

International certification bodies, such as IRATA have very strict regulations and inform and instruct the rope access industry. Statistics show that rope access is the safest option for working at height.

Pricing is Better For Rope Access Work

When compared with scaffolding, rope access in Edinburgh beats scaffolding. Obviously, there are some cases when the scaffold is unavoidable, especially if the damage that is being fixed spans several floors or requires heavy materials.

However, for most projects, the majority of the cost for the job comes from the scaffold, not from the work undertaken. This makes rope access is superior.
