Rope access and the use of remote access equipment has been an integral part of Rock Control since we began trading in 2010. Over three quarters of our staff are trained and qualified in rope access techniques including management and project engineers, with extensive experience carrying out a variety of geotechnical projects in vertical environments. We have completed dozens of projects in Christchurch and throughout NZ that have required all face access to be by rope.
