INDUSTRIAL ROPE ACCESS SERVICES | RAYACCESS
RayAccess, Inc. is the exclusive provider of industrial rope access services in Los Angeles. In general, Industrial Rope Access is an access method which allows technicians to safely reach and work at high or difficult-to-reach areas using top anchors and a two-line system. It applies where the application of conventional means including scaffolding, swing stages, aerial platforms and ladders are not feasible or can be a hazard to the public, workers, and property.
To ensure safety in our operations, all of our rope access technicians are certified and trained in accordance with SPRAT and IRATA standards. All the fall-protection, fall-arrest and positioning equipment is routinely inspected and maintained by competent persons. A detailed safety planning and Job Safety Analysis are implemented prior to each project.
At RayAccess, we apply a rope access expertise for exterior and high interior building maintenance, industrial maintenance, entertainment and other trades at height.
Rope Access Initiatives:
Industrial Rope Access is more than just a high access method, it’s a system with 5 integrated initiatives that include recruitment, training, equipment management, job site planning, and project management. In order to achieve excellence, each initiative operates as an individual program.
Rope access service providers offer full time employment for crew members that have industrial rope access certifications. Recruitment efforts are ongoing so contractors can attract the most qualified technicians and clients.
To help with career development, rope access service providers operate inhouse training programs. Employees can learn new skills in building maintenance, non-destructive testing, and confined space training. In addition to internal training, rope access companies assist with IRATA/SPRAT rope access certifications. Technicians can get their level I, II, or III certification, paid for by their employer.
The industrial rope access tool kit must be inspected during routine timelines. A competent person will perform a peruse inspection before every job.
Job Site Planning
Before every job a Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is required. The JSA outlines all access methods, communication plans, rescue scenarios, work plans, anchorage selections, and hazard analysis.
Last but not least, all projects are managed by a supervisor. Depending on job difficulty, either a level 2 or 3 technician will manage the project.
Rope Access Advantages:
Across industries, industrial rope access has continuously demonstrated the highest safety ratings pertaining to working at height. Comparing to other “rope access” systems such as bosun’s chair (aka “boatswains chair”), Controlled Descent Apparatus (aka “CDA”) or Rope Descent System (aka “RDS”), Industrial Rope Access maintains the most strict guidelines and requirements for training and certification, setup and rigging, project management and safety planning, equipment selection and inspection. At RayAccess, we adhere to SPRAT and IRATA safe practices which meet and exceed OSHA and ANSI standards.
In addition to safety, the advantage of using Rope Access lies in speed in which workers can access difficult locations and carry out their work. In fact, simplicity and mobility of the rope access equipment allows to implement work at height in a quick and cost-efficient manner.
In contrast to using scaffolding, boom lifts or suspended platforms, Industrial Rope Access work reduces the need of traffic management, street permits, and road closures. Technicians work in close proximity to building walls enabling a much smaller zone for safety barricades. Also, rigging and use of rope access equipment does not create any noise. Resulting in much less disturbances for people in and around the property.
Rope access allows technicians to position themselves on a structure both vertically and horizontally. Workers are enabled to ascend, descend, and move laterally. In addition, rope access can easily access courtyards and walls between buildings where there is no room for extension ladders or boom lifts.
Simplicity, mobility and the minimal effect benefits of using Industrial Rope Access versus conventional means have substantial savings in time and overhead costs.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
On behalf of 1033 Ocean Ave HOA, I would like to thank RayAccess for a great job in cleaning and restoring the exterior of our building. Utilizing your rope access system saved our Association much in costs and we are glad to have avoided the need to erect scaffolding to perform the work. Sergey and his crew were very professional and communicated well during the project.
"Great job in washing our building! Very professional team."
"Thanks so much for the great work! The windows look perfect"
"Great job at a great price! Had them come in to clean our building and were able to reach the high windows with no problem! Called for a free estimate, they came that same day and then came to clean to the next day! Friendly staff as well!"
Thank you so much for cleaning windows at our building. The tenants are so happy! They can finally see what's outside their windows!
I'm really happy with work RayAccess did for us on painting the exterior of Loews atrium. At first, I though it would be a nightmare project because of old paint condition and difficult access to some areas. But it turned out to be a very professional and smooth job! Thank you.
RayAccess painted our outdoor movie screen on a high-rise building in Downtown LA. With their Rope Access method, they saved us thousands of dollars in bringing a huge lift and blocking almost entire street. The job was done perfectly! Thank you so much!
