Rope Access Inspection Applications & Service Area:
Based in Los Angeles California, RayAccess, Inc. serves the Southern California market and may travel for select projects throughout the state. Whether you need a rope access inspection to access a high area on a private home, multi-family building or large industrial structure; RayAccess certified industrial rope access technicians are standing by.
Building Facade Inspection:
While suspended in the air, rope access crews will get to every inch of your building or home. Rope access technicians can more easily navigate setbacks, protruding balconies, large cornices, peaked roofs, and spires.
Cranes and heavy machinery can be complex systems that experience extreme loads and wear and tear during their lifespan. RopeAccess technicians can inspect and highlight an inadequate control system that needs repair.
Historic Building Inspection:
Rope Access is the preferred method to navigate historic buildings with projecting building elements that are very common in midcentury architecture. We access hard-to-reach areas and reduce any impact or disturbance to the buildings.
Stadium and Arena Inspection:
Due to high roofs and platforms in sports arenas, safety precautions need to be put into place for inspection and maintenance. Industrial rope access is the preferred method for safety.
Smokestack and Industrial Chimney Inspection:
Routine inspections via rope access can help identify potential problems before they turn into unplanned outages.
Rope Access inspections on cruise and container ships help maritime clients protect assets against corrosion.
Wind Turbine Inspection:
Rope access inspections support renewable energy, keeping wind turbine blades and towers functional while minimizing total inspection costs.
Vessel & Tank Inspection:
Rope Access inspections of vessels and storage tanks help reduce the risk of harmful leaks.
Rope Access crews keep public infrastructure secure by performing inspections for routine maintenance and disaster relief on bridges and roads.
Cell Tower Inspection:
Cell tower inspections via Rope Access help with the inspection and installation of lightning protection systems required by the FAA.
What is Industrial Rope Access:
Industrial Rope Access is a method tested and perfected by the oil exploration industry for inspection and maintenance of offshore oil rigs. Workers use a non-motorized work positioning system with anchors and two-line rope systems. As you can imagine, having a safe and versatile access method in difficult environments such as ocean waters is instrumental to the production of an oil rig.
Unlike traditional access methods, rope access rigging can be quickly established and dismantled. This leads to far fewer disruptions to building operations or the downtown of an asset. Besides oil extraction, industrial rope access is being used across multiple industries all across the world. The safety record is impeccable with over 15 million hours of record labor. Industrial Rope Access is a proven method of achieving a safe work position at height or in areas of difficult access.
Primary Benefits of Rope Access Inspections:
Rope access inspections compared to “binocular inspections” allow for technicians to inspect close-up and hands-on. Inspection documentation has far greater detail and reporting accuracy.
Rapid deployment of rigging far outperforms the slow process of installing scaffolding or obtaining permits for boom lifts.
It allows technicians to move horizontally, up and down for superior access.
Rope access requires less equipment and crew members, translating into lower expense.
IRATA/SPRAT regulating bodies maintain strident guidelines and requirements for certification and training.
Minimal disruptions to the public during inspections or facility downtime.
With rope access there is no petrol, oil, or electricity used to perform inspections. Rope access technicians leave no carbon footprint.
Safety & Regulations:
Industrial Rope Access has an unmatched safety record and RayAccess is committed to safety excellence. RayAccess employs technicians that have special training and certifications in industrial rope access from IRATA/SPRAT. Rope access inspections are done safely if and only if certified rope access technicians are employed.
- Information/problem review: complimentary job walk is usually performed to assess clients needs
- Proposal: cost is determined on approximate square footage, access difficulty, and time commitment
- Rigging: rope access equipment is rigged at the top of the structure
- Ropework: the actually inspection process when technicians repel from building or structure
- Documentation: provided with a detailed photo report & recommendation
Another highly versatile and nimble method, drone inspections have reduced the risk of accidents if completed by FAA-certified pilots.
Rope Access Support of Testing by Engineering Firms:

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.
