News

Industrial Abseiling have abseiled on a number of exciting buildings in and around the Capital.  We have recently returned to abseil on Westminster Cathedral, the Harrods store and the new Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead, for the second time, which helps speak for itself on our commitment to quality work and a prompt response.  

Take a look at the some of the photographs and videos from some of our recent work...


Abseiling Sky Gardens, London

Industrial Abseiling recently carried out an amazing job which had been deemed impossible!  Our task was to install a large vinyl graphic to the exterior glass of the Sky Garden which is situated at the top of the giant commercial skyscraper 20 Fenchurch Street (also know as the Walkie Talkie Building).  The signage was to celebrate the release of Transformers - The Last Knight and featured Optimus Prime in a location where you could even get a selfie with him!  Our rope access operatives worked closely throughout the night with all involved, our client Newman Displays, Paramount Pictures and Kuku Media who filmed our work.  It was a challenging job but our skilled operatives showed just how experienced and talented they are to get the job done.

Lighting Signage

 It was probably about time Industrial Abseiling went back to school...or rather in this case back to university, more specifically the Queen Mary University of London. But we didn’t get to join the other bright sparks in lectures and seminars because we had a job to do instead – installing the universities new electrical signage.

Our teams love installing signage features such as this because of the unique challenges they face – requiring all our usual rope access, work restriction and fall arrest techniques for access, but also safe and proper wiring of the electrics and also working with haulage systems in order to lift often large, heavy lettering and emblems safely and securely into place.

Snow Centre

After besting the worst of the British weather in London a few weeks ago our team still felt that they just hadn’t seen quite enough snow yet. So when the opportunity to carry out work on Hemel Hempstead’s Snow Centre appeared, we couldn’t wait to get stuck in. Luckily though our team of abseilers wrapped up warm for this one!

The action came thick and fast on the slopes, and our team were busy too – working hard high above to remove frozen ice from the centre’s steel roof supports. In order to get the job done our specialists had to employ a rope access technique which enables them to horizontally traverse out to the problem area and carry out works called aid-climbing.

Needless to say, by the time boots hit the snow everyone was more than ready for a nice cup of tea and a chance to get warm. Mission accomplished.

Banner Installation at Waterloo

 The team have recently been involved in dropping and installing a large banner in the busy Waterloo Station.  The weight and size of the banner made this a tough job but we use a pulley system to ensure this is done quickly and safely.  Many of you may have seen it on your journey to the Royal Wedding!!!
