Rope Access TechnicianThis career path is not for the faint of heart, or for those with any phobia relating to heights. The required safety precautions and extensive training make the work quite safe, however most technicians do share a desire for a bit of extra adrenaline in their work day. The wide variety and scope of tasks that can be completed while suspended by ropes and harnesses is really quite amazing.

Industrial Access, Inc. (IA) is a leader for working at height by combining rope access techniques and skilled specialty tradesmen to complete a number of high-angle tasks. IA’s expert teams of SPRAT-certified, rope access technicians are able to safely and efficiently perform complicated work at great heights, often in situations with obstructions or interferences that would make conventional approaches using scaffolding, lifts or cranes cost-prohibitive or physically impractical. Our skill sets while working using high rope access include electrical, welding, cutting, patching, painting, waterproofing, coating, resurfacing, relining, maintenance, diagnostic testing, smokestack inspection, cleaning processes, hydroblasting, demolition and replacing, rebuilding or repairing structural components.

Taking headaches away from facility and plant managers and owners by offering proven solutions is what makes IA a special breed of company. Every job requires a custom designed solution combining technology and technicians. Aside from being SPRAT Certified high access contractors willing to work at tremendous heights, IA techs are also skilled tradesmen capable of meeting very specific needs.

IA has mastered the art of rope access to help create cost-effective testing, maintenance and repair methods for their power generation, heavy industrial and manufacturing clients. Rope access requires a smaller crew, less heavy equipment and less down time, so clients can expect fast service and savings compared to other methods. Core sampling, non-destructive structural tests (NDT), identification of structural deficiencies, testing and control of hazardous corrosion of carbon steel piping, positive material identification (PMI), cleanings & inspections, smokestack painting & resurfacing, relining and coating, carbon fabric wrap, safety compliance, smokestack ladder & rail installation replacement or repair, lightning protection & aviation warning light systems, and any repairs or renovations to structures can now be completed quickly and affordably.rop1

“IA’s core competencies center on high quality, full service, inspections, general maintenance initiatives and complete, interior/exterior restoration and repair services for concrete, masonry, steel and fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) structures, towers, industrial chimneys and stacks,” notes Robert Washington, Business Development for Industrial Access, Inc. “We’ve established a very strong reputation for quality, safety and efficiency at a fair price.”

Having experience with nearly every type of high structures at industrial and manufacturing plants, IA is able to help clients maintain their hard-to-reach, high elevation stacks, ductwork, vessels, cooling towers and other industry specific structures by utilizing rope access techniques (also known as steeplejack services). With efficiency and cost-effectiveness in mind, IA makes sure that crews arrive on site quickly to address emergency situations and are willing to do what it takes to get the job done to keep things running safely. That can mean working through the night, on weekends or in shifts 24/7 during plant shutdowns to eliminate or minimize downtime and reduce impact on client operations.
