Blocked by a tricky location? Rope Access in Film and TV can make that impossible shot possible by giving your crew access to hard to reach places! Have you ever been in a production meeting and said to yourselves, “how are we suppose to rig that up in that spot?” Or, “there is no way we can get those shots because of the location.” Or, “there is no way scaffolding can fit there. And, even if we tried, it’s too expensive.” In those very niche and special situations, Rope Access can be your alternative option.

 

 

 

Rope Access is an innovative access solution that enables a technician to use 2 ropes and a harness system to position themselves in nearly any work environment. In conjunction with a unique gear system, an access technician can maneuver themselves with complete 360 degree mobility in difficult locations, all while completing a myriad of work tasks. Typically Rope Access is used in industrial settings as it not only allows a technician ultimate time efficiency, with easy installation and de-installation, but also allows for great cost savings as it eliminates the need for scaffold or other heavy access equipment.

 

 

 

In Film and TV, time is money!

Rope Access gets you that money shot without breaking budget!

Rope Access in film and TV makes the most sense
when you need to access a tricky location.
The Director or DOP may need to place a
camera at a specific angle to get
that magic shot, but getting your crew and
equipment in the right places may prove
challenging! This is where Rope Access
can improve the relationship between
the creatives and production
management. 
Using Rope Access makes
getting that magic shot possible but
without being overly costly.

How is Rope Access safe?

Rope Access has it’s own little section in the WorksafeBC OHS regulation. It’s section 34! But, to save you time and effort, we’ve listed out all the things below that make using Rope Access safe on set.

  • It’s regulated by WorksafeBC
  • The system is redundant. All equipment in Rope Access is tied off twice!
  • The teams are redundant. There is never a 1 person Rope Access team. This ensures our redundancy and safety!
  • Our Rope Access system is audited by our international Rope Access association (IRATA). This means we have to abide by standards proven to ensure safety and competency on set.
