If you have a high rise building, carrying out essential maintenance such as glazing can be a challenge, with both logistical and safety concerns. It requires a specialist team who is trained to work at heights and negotiate their way around the facade while causing minimal disruption to tenants and surrounding buildings. 

How does rope access glazing work? 

Glazing using rope access techniques utilises rigs, pulleys and vacuum lifting equipment to install or repair panels of glass. It needs to be carried out by professionals to get the job done safely. 

Rope access is an alternative to using heavy equipment and scaffolding. It’s a safer option, at Apex Facades we only use quality rope systems that have undergone rigorous safety checks, minimising the chance of accidents and liability. 

At Apex Facades rope access gives our qualified glaziers flexibility to move around the tightest of spaces while carrying out glazing works. Our equipment allows us to work with a low footprint to minimise any disruption to your business, tenants or neighbours.

We use the safest and most innovative rigging techniques, allowing us to take on most replacements without any road closures or need for large cranes. Rope access allows us to reach areas traditional heavy equipment can’t, it is versatile and lightweight so our glaziers can move around the building with ease.
