Rope Access

Industrial rope access techniques allow work to be carried out at heights where alternative access is extremely difficult and costly.

Today, industrial rope access is widely used in the construction and maintenance of oil and gas installations and wind turbines.

Rope access technicians working for StS Resources & Technology are highly experienced in abseiling and working at heights and have a variety of professional backgrounds. Many of our technicians are members of the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) or Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians (SPRAT).

StS can deliver technicians with many professional skills including: welding, insulation, painting, rigging, NDT Inspection, pipe work and electrical work.
