Following an initial consultancy period, SG Access provided reports detailing safe modes of access for both rope access and non rope access personnel, and designs were drawn up for a safe access systems to be installed, enabling safe access to previously unreachable locations. Our rope access team used combinations of specialist rigging, aid climbing, custom ladders, and fall arrest rescue winches to install safety netting within the magnificent Victorian Palm House to protect staff and members of the public, and carried out extensive glazing maintenance throughout to help restore the glasshouses to their former glory.
Following the initial consultancy and restoration works, SG are now on call for emergency safety glazing maintenance at the Botanics.
