Safety and flexibility built in
Buildings can provide specific challenges when it comes to maintenance and inspections as often the needs for ongoing inspections was not a primary consideration at the design stage.
Rope access provides the essential flexible approach that avoids the expense of lifts and cranes in order to check structures and if needed install or retrofit parts of the structure.
During construction, rope access can often provide that essential first fix to install the access equipment ready for the later stages including fixings for lifts, scaffolding and building wraps.
If you already have your your team then we can help you make sure your team complies with the latest regulations and is working safely both for themselves and for the guests.
We can also provide holiday cover for your own rescue teams, or act as your outsourced rescue team.

For commercial or residential buildings
Rope access is cost effective
When correctly performed Rope Access offers a quick, cost effective and safe alternative to using aerial work platforms, cranes and cradles or scaffolding.
In many circumstances it offers the only practical option for access to some structures, and can be especially useful on building sites, listed buildings and iconic structures where alterations are not an option.
MCL-UK can advise on the best use of the rope access and the range of other working at height and fall protection solutions.

British Engineering Services
“British Engineering’s Technical Consultancy Department have been working with Martin and the MCL team for several years now. As a UKAS accredited inspection body, BESL need to ensure the highest quality of service for our clients, and also safety for our people. BESL carried out many robust site audits and documentation reviews surrounding MCL’s procedures and practices prior to allowing them to act as L3 technicians and rescue providers to our team. We need to ensure that all our clients large and small are delighted with our service. Martin and his team have helped us achieve this goal wherever we have utilised them. We have able to support our client base more by offering rope access inspections as many items in industry are hard to access due to their design. This also has a positive impact on efficiencies and associated costs to our clients.”
