Why Use Rope Access?


The rope access and high rise glazing systems that Apex Facade employ are highly beneficial in more ways than one. 

Our abseil operators ascend buildings safely with minimal risk using a combination of pulley techniques and innovative rope access systems. Using a specialised suction cup placed on the glass, it allows the operator to move horizontally across the building in a safe way. This reduces the need for more complicated equipment whilst producing a small ground footprint.

Some companies would call the environments our technicians work in challenging, but our team has years of experience working on the end of a rope at height.  Client satisfaction is paramount, and our rope access technicians always aim to ensure the job is done right the first time every time in the safest possible manner.



Whether it’s a multi-story property or inner city sky-scrapers, many building owners or tenants run into an array of issues when trying to access the building for facade maintenance and repairs, glazing, sign removal and installation, or weatherproofing. 

Architectural buildings with abstract designs often have Windows and walls in awkward corners or at difficult angles. Uneven and unstable surfaces consisting of rocks, turf, damaged concrete, or garden beds that surround buildings can also cause access problems. Even if there is access to the windows, the initial investment of purchasing and then maintaining expensive equipment can be costly for the owner who often passes these costs onto the tenants.

A rope based system can manage all of these jobs with ease. Rope access using abseil, rigging and pulley techniques ensure that buildings with difficult access can be reached by the team. 

Having a small equipment footprint and a quick set up are just some of the advantages from utilising pulley and rigging systems to lift or haul. The disruption to your tenants and clients is also kept to a minimum, meaning there’s a good chance they won’t even know you’re there. 

Our highly skilled team and their ability to get the job done quickly, quietly and safely has given Apex Facades the reputation as one of Australia’s premier rope access companies in Melbourne and beyond.
