Industrial rope access is the solution of choice due to the flexibility of the system.
With no need for permits, or flat stable ground beneath the work area, the whole project is much less complicated. Industrial abseiling is still more cost-effective as there is no separation between the access method and the works being done.
Once again, the client was very happy with his first use of rope access.
