INDUSTRIAL ROPE ACCESS
& FALL ARREST
Rope-Access Systems provide economical, safe and efficient means to access locations out of the reach of conventional access (e.g. scaffolding, EWP). Where regular access is required, permanent rope-access system anchors are recommended. These systems are strictly regulated by WorkSafe BC and require annual certification and periodic inspection by a certified professional engineer.
GreatPacific maintains an Industrial Rope-Access (SPRAT) certified Professional Engineer on staff, and provides engineering services for industrial rope-access, restraint, and fall-arrest systems on residential and commercial buildings and industrial infrastructure.
