Accessing all areas

Our highly trained access specialists deliver solutions to the most challenging buildings

Welcome to PTSG Building Access Specialists Ltd – the home of high-level building access solutions for commercial, industrial and public buildings.

Our team has many years’ experience in delivering a wide range of specialist services at height. Our extensive knowledge of working at height means that we can access virtually any part of any building – either internally or externally for cleaning and refurbishment purposes.

At PTSG, our IRATA-trained engineers use industrial rope equipment to service buildings and structures of all kinds, built in different eras for hugely diverse functions. Blackpool Tower, Wembley Park and Lincoln’s Waterside shopping centre are just some of the structures we have worked on recently, calling on our industrial rope access experts to get the best results.

Rope access equipment has the great advantage of being lightweight and is therefore easily mobilised on site. This enables PTSG’s engineers to install and remove all equipment quickly, causing minimal disruption and saving valuable time. Another advantage is that it is less obtrusive physically and visually, compared to scaffolding and mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), for example.

Due to the unobtrusive nature of industrial rope access, certain buildings, such as shopping centres, can remain operational during works. The visual integrity of historic buildings is also largely unaltered during rope access works.

PTSG’s large team of steeplejack engineers cover the four corners of the UK. They design and install unique access systems to suit clients, each of whom has its own distinctive building(s). This may be a modern skyscraper, but it may also be a church steeple or an industrial chimney stack.

Working from fail-safe anchors and using high-strength industrial ropes, our steeplejack engineers can work on large areas smoothly and effectively, moving both vertically and laterally with ease. Rope access technicians are also trained to work along beams and other supports.

Using a system of slings and attachments, we can carry out a wide range of installation, maintenance and construction tasks which would otherwise require the use of costly towers or mobile platforms.
