Rope access provides steeplejacks an invaluable solution for areas that are difficult to access, allowing highly skilled and trained technicians to descend or ascend on ropes – anywhere, on any structure.

Rope access can save considerable time and money. Not only does it provide a flexible solution but it is much less expensive and intrusive than the more traditional access methods, such as scaffolding or powered access machines.

Rope access is ideal for tall, complex and/or historic buildings as our expert steeplejacks can then get into those hard-to-reach places with the minimum of disruption to the structure itself.

Balmore Specialist Contracts technicians, using rope access techniques to reach difficult locations, can carry out an extensive range of tasks as required and specified by the client.

As a long established company, Balmore Specialist Contracts aim to deliver a first class, professional roofing service sensitive to the requirements of our clients. Method Statements and Risk Assessments, along with photographic surveys can be offered to our prospective customers and provide an efficient way to view and assess problems from the comfort of the boardroom. Photographic and/or video evidence ensures that our clients can review a full record of the condition of the structure requiring inspection. Decisions based on the repairs required can then be made.
