GSS is often called upon to carry out geotechnical services in areas with very limited or difficult access, including operating at significant heights and utilising helicopters.
Where the location prevents machinery safely undertaking the task from ground level or from the upper level of the slope or wall to be stabilised, GSS uses highly experienced and qualified experts to tackle the task via rope access.
Rope access offers significant benefits in hard to access areas and ensures that the task can be undertaken safely and completed to a standard it would be impossible to achieve otherwise. Rope access by our skilled professionals allows GSS to successfully undertake projects at heights and in confined spaces that cranes and cherry pickers simply cannot access.
Using rope access, GSS has completed many rock bolting, stabilisation and rockfall protection projects where surfaces have been degraded or are unstable, in hazardous rockfall areas, high vertical slopes, tunnels, shafts, silos and tanks.
Safety is paramount and our highly trained difficult access solutions team is qualified with internationally recognised systems such as IRATA and TRAC.
