Abseil Systems

Fade Cleaning, cladding maintenance and window cleaning can often require the use of professional rope access technicians. The reasons for this can vary from the height of the building meaning that platforms or scaffold cannot reach, to the area around the building being unsuitable or too busy to use standard access means. In this case the work must be carried out in suspension, anchored to suitable anchorage systems at the top of the structure.

Harcon Services can design, supply and install various forms of Abseil Systems. Whether your access requirements dictate anchorage posts, eyebolts, or continuous track systems, we have your solution. Due to the diversity of building specifications we can provide abseiling anchorage systems to suit a wide range of roof systems and structures.

We will design the anchorage points and system to allow a user to carry out the required works. The abseil anchors will be designed to take the load of the user along with their equipment. The user must legally be supplied with two anchorage points to connect onto whilst carrying out their works, this is to provide a secondary safety fall arrest backup in the event that the primary suspension anchor or suspension equipment fails.

Overhead Track System

Providing full permanent access for routine inspection, testing and maintenance works such as gantries and work platforms is not always possible, an alternative method is to provide a less intrusive track system for suspending personnel, using industrial rope access techniques.

A track system provides such a facility. On buildings with the need to access facades, cladding or glazed areas the installation of a track based abseil system enables operatives to traverse quickly and efficiently between work places without the need for multiple rigging and de-rigging.

Single Anchorage Systems

Suspension for narrow areas of work such as individual window cleaning, or single unit maintenance require the minimal level of anchorage as there is no travel required, and subsequently minimal rigging and de-rigging is required..  With a pair of eyebolts, either installed on posts or direct to the structure this requirement can be met.

Safety Eyebolts positioning should always be determined by a competent person, following the recommendations of BS 7883:1997 clause 8 where appropriate. Our competency ensures that your anchorages are positioned and installed in the perfect position to provide 100% safety.

Davit Arm Systems

On buildings with isolated strips such as stairwells or for roof-mounted applications where it is not possible to provide parapet protection, davits provide an economical, effective and extremely discrete anchor system. A typical davit comprises of a fixed base and upright with a rotating head. Alternatively a series of sockets can be provided allowing the davit to be moved from position to position.
