We thought we would write a quick post about one of our abseiling jobs, we are still new to the abseiling business, however, we are really confident in what we can do and love the abseiling part of our job!
Spot The Worker!
Abseiling Fitzleet House, Queensway, Bognor Regis, To Install A Full IRS System; Sky, Freeview, Freesat & DAB/FM
This 17 story block of flats was in need of a full IRS system, this is a system which basically allows everyone in the block of flats to have Freeview, Sky and radio. There were a number of options ways by which this job could be completed. One would be to scaffold each of the four drops; where the cable runs have been planned, however the shear cost and time to do this type of installation was well out of budget for the Managing Agents.
Option two was using a “cherry picker”, but again the cost of hiring this equipment for the week was too much for the MA; this is where Doddington Aerials & Satellites innovative method proved economical, quick and effective.
Doddington Aerials is fully IRATA trained rope access technicians, this means we are able to quickly and simply rig up our ropes at the top of the four planned drops and use abseiling to install options to give any building access to digital TV and radio capabilities.
This is exactly what we did at Fitzleet House, we ran the all the cables to feed the 70 flats in just 3 days.
With it being so quick to set up our ropes, we are also able to dismantle the ropes at the end of the day; to prevent anyone interfering or messing around with the install.
Abseiling is not only work which we believe is a fantastic solution for many property managers and owners, but we also love the thrill which abseiling brings. It’s a bit different from working on a residential property to say the least!
