Rope access and abseiling services are efficient and effective. Call the Smarter Services to discuss how we can help access those hard to reach areas.

Abseiling and rope access

Smarter Services has one of the most experienced rope access operations in the business. This method is usually cheaper than the alternatives, much less intrusive to the everyday running of a building, and gives you access to parts other systems can’t reach. Because we can carry several out at the same time, it often brings costs down further. It also improves building inspection and maintenance because our people will spot minor problems before they become major ones.

  • Less intrusive
  • Lower costs
  • Excellent safety record
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Is it right for you?

We’ll assess your site and create a working-at-heights strategy free of charge, including a risk assessment, a method statement and a rescue plan. We’ll see what we can do and you’ll be surprised by the possibilities. And we always look for ways to save you money, by reassessing methods, rationalising existing equipment, or taking care of several issues at once. Cleaning procedures we carry out at heights:

  • Window cleaning
  • Pressure-washing
  • PaintingRe-lamping
  • Bird-proofing
  • Vacuuming and dusting
  • Eyebolt testing, installation & re-certification
  • Site and canopy surveys
  • Banner and artwork installation
  • Christmas decorations

Safety first

Smarter Services have a 100% record on safety, and we want to keep it that way. We use an electronic permit system that significantly speeds up security processes and makes sure only correctly trained staff are allowed to work at heights. All such staff have full NARC training (National Access and Rescue Centre), so you can be sure they work with all relevant safety codes. Our abseiling teams also have IRATA training (Industrial Rope Access Association) and anyone operating platform machinery is also IPAF trained (International Powered Access Federation). Smarter Services is, of course, fully insured.

Eyebolt testing

Our specialists will install eyebolts for abseiling and fall arrest, or test and certify the existing ones you have.


With a fully developed rescue strategy for every building we work on, and an in-house rescue team at the ready, smarter services can help. We were the first in the business to offer this.
