While painting is sometimes a relatively simple and inexpensive task when done in immediately accessible locations it can become significantly more challenging and costly when dealing with large industrial structures. Structures such as water towers, smoke stacks, cranes, wind turbines, tanks and silos can be difficult because many of the surfaces requiring paint are not normally designed to be accessed.
Historically companies have spent enormous amounts of money to position workers in these locations using scaffolding, elevated work platforms man baskets and swing stage to perform relatively small amounts of work. Often these techniques require diverting traffic, potentially long expensive shut downs and the rental of expensive specialized equipment. Often when painting large structures and performing other elevated maintenance work, scaffolding can account for up to 50% of the cost.
Rope access provides a more flexible, cost efficient alternative to paint these large structures. Rope Access Coatings Technicians can be placed in these difficult locations utilizing personal rope systems which are quickly and efficiently assembled and disassembled. Our technicians can safely and quickly rappel or climb to these areas to perform surface preparation, and industrial coatings application without a significant footprint on the ground below and without a lot of expensive scaffolding, or heavy equipment.
