Sub-Service: Abseil and Rope Access

Published: Nov 2 2020



At PHD, our Abseiling and Rope-based services provide a fast and effective method to gain access to high levels, hard to access locations, and with the benefits of being quickly mobilized with minimum disruption.

Used in conjunction with our Scaffold and Mechanical access services, rope access can allow for another dimension, as viewed in our Innovative Scaffolding Solution video.




Workshops in the Sky

Our remit the Compression Truss required Strengthening to carry the extended roof at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Stadium this is a prime example of how rope access can be introduced to deliver a more efficiency with combined solution.

PHD produced a bespoke, radical ‘top-down slung’ solution born out of the methods harking back to the days of the Cinema and finding access to the proscenium arch.

The work was achieved safely with a mix of abseils access, MEWPs, and the experienced advanced scaffolders who are part of our Abseiling Department.
