Cost effective

The true benefits of abseiling are realised when the current cost to access an area is disproportionate to the amount of work that has to be carried out.

Environmental Impact

Abseiling or rope access is a safe and cost effective alternative to scaffolding or powered access (cherry pickers/ scissor lifts) and also is much kinder to the environment by reducing the Co2 (carbon footprint) as no large lorries hauling powered access or scaffolding are needed to complete the difficult access task.

Minimum Disruption

Unlike powered access, Up and Over Abseiling does not need a large flat, open area beneath the work site. We can operate legally and safely without time-consuming permits, reducing inconvenience, time and cutting cost, thus passing on the savings to our customers.


All Up and Over Industrial Abseiling technicians are qualified to IRATA (Industrial Rope Access Trade Association) standards and have a 100% safety record. RAMS are carried out for every job and we are fully insured. References can be obtained upon request.


Due to the flexibility in abseiling techniques all equipment including ropes are removed at the end of each working day, eliminating potential security risks as well as more general health and safety concerns otherwise related with scaffolding and powered access.

Up and Over abseiling are a leading supplier of industrial rope access services offering a broad range of areas of expertise in difficult access areas, specialist installations, inspections, maintenance works, and safety advice. The expanse of our advice and implementation of our solutions enables your projects to be delivered on time and within budget.

Rope Access techniques enables certain work (i.e. complex structures - stadiums - inspection and maintenance works) to be carried out, which may not have been possible using other conventional access methods. Rope Access is a form of work positioning, originating from climbing and caving. Specific rope work was utilised to reach areas which may not have been accessible by other means. This 'Rope Work' has now been developed in order to utilise these methods to reach inaccessible areas within the work environment.

Rope access equipment is lightweight and able to be removed in rapid time, which offers greater flexibility and speed, and therefore making rope access a preferred method of access for many difficult sites allowing a variety of task to be undertaken. Each project is given the 'Safe and Best practice' approach ensuring all work is carried out to the highest safety standards.


The real benefits of rope access are realised when the current number of man hours are assessed in working at height during the process of gaining access to the working area with traditional methods of access.

  • Using Rope Access can provide an unobtrusive, cost effective access capability
  • Equipment used (i.e. Ropes) can be installed and uninstalled rapidly to ensure minimum disruption and therefore could help reduce overall lead time on projects, which could in turn see a reduction in project costs
  • Benefits of rope access is when the cost to access an area is disproportionate to the amount of work that has to be carried out
  • The number of man hours working at height can be vastly reduced when using Rope Access over traditional access methods
  • Other trades can generally continue their works without disruption at ground level, compared with other access methods, i.e. scaffolding
  • Rope systems can be easily installed to reach almost All areas, which may not have been possible using conventional means
  • Use of Rope Access could reduce further costs where there maybe need of road closures, i.e. Busy Shopping Centres
  • Rope Access offers greater flexibility for rescheduling and can therefore take advantage of any weather conditions
  • Due to the unobtrusive nature, Rope Access can offer historic building owners less visual impact during inspections, enabling them to retain their visual integrity.

Rope access operatives can often accomplish in a matter of hours, work which previously took days to complete.
