Rope access is often the only viable means of accessing a specific location on any surface or inside a structure. Rope access technicians can ascent, descend and move horizontally, all with a minimum amount of gear.


Rope access is exceptionally cost-effective compared to conventional methods of access like scaffolding. Cost savings are attributed to fewer personnel required for shorter duration (reducing the total project man-hours), shorter facility shut downs, rapid mobilization, minimal set up time and lower equipment costs.


The level of risk for a particular task (man-at-risk hours) is often reduced when compared with other means of access and their associated risks and costs through the deployment of small crews with high levels of training specifically tailored to perform work at height.


All technicians receive extensive training and independent assessment and are required to undergo re-training every three years. Training includes rescue procedures even though IRATA International has an unrivalled record of safe working. All equipment is regularly inspected and well maintained. All training and operational work is conducted in compliance with the IRATA International Code of Practice and international Health and Safety standards.

Painting services

Our rope access painting methods offer an efficient, high quality, cost effective alternative to other high access methods. We work in partnership with C & J Travers Industrial Painting, one of the leaders on Irish market in industrial coating and lining applications.

Bridge inspections

Using rope access techniques we perform bridge inspections on concrete or/and steel structures. Inspections are important to prevent serious structure defects like corrosion or collapse of the structure. Fastest, cost efficient and most effective way to do this is to use rope access services.

Dam inspections

Photo inspections

Most of the dams need to be inspected on regular basis. We carry out surface and tensioned anchors inspection for our customers on a regular basis. By using power washing systems and special tools our qualified personnel clean up any part of the dam, including difficult to access areas. We also provide dam inspections using photo and video tools.

Rope access services provide variety of solutions. When our customers need more detailed information about condition of surface or condition of steel structure we perform visual and photo inspection of buildings, bridges or any high structures. Each spot or crack which has to be examined by a qualified engineer will be recorded and photographed. We also take dimensions of the affected areas using laser measurement tools.


When the job is done, data is transferred to customers’ computer, recorded on CD or emailed to the customers.


Façade work

Confined space

We offer façades surveys and repairs on high multi-store buildings on both finished and unfinished constructions. This is applicable to internal atriums where the use of MEWP or scaffolding is not possible due to high cost and time pressure. In order to avoid disruption of normal work schedule, we can do all works at night time or over the weekend.

In confined spaces, like silos, penstocks, towers, chimneys etc. rope access is an ideal method of access. We offer visual and photo inspection. Our qualified personnel are confined access certified, appropriately trained and have specific rescue plan and equipment.
