What is Rope Access?

Rope Access Services

Industrial Rope Access is a proven method of achieving a safe work position at height or in areas of difficult access. Rope Access is a quicker, safer, and a more cost-effective alternative to other traditional access methods. Rope Access Systems can be quickly assembled and dismantled, leading to less disruptions and increased production. HSI is the only IRATA Operating Member in California.
