Our team of professional industrial abseiling contractors recently facilitated one of the most exciting events that television programme, the Amazing Race has ever undertaken.
Celebrity contestants including Kyle Sandilands, Jackie O, Brian McFadden and his wife Vogue as well as other well known personalities, were challenged to abseil from the Novotel hotel in Darling Harbour and carry out window cleaning to reveal a secret code that would enable them to progress to the next stage of this thrilling event.
This was truly a confronting challenge to abseil a 14 storey building and proved too much for some, but brought out great courage in others.
The team at ASG, who usually find themselves performing all sorts of difficult access building maintenance, were pleased to have the opportunity to take a well earned break from large abseil painting and concrete repair projects to participate in another high profile entertainment event. The team performed flawlessly, offering the contestants a level of security and safety that only comes with expertise in industrial rope access as well as experience in providing different types of clients with our specialised services.
Our event partners, the Novotel, 2dayFM and the production crew of the Amazing Race were a fantastic team to work with to bring about an extremely successful event which will feature in the upcoming celebrity Amazing Race, Sydney.
ASG are specialists in providing abseiling services to a wide array of clientele, from building maintenance oriented clients through to entertainment and film clients.
Remedial repairs to difficult access areas of structures used to be a major operation.
Scaffolding, EWP, all sorts of expensive means to get to the works locations, often just to carry out something really simple. These costs meant that many facilities managers, building managers and other parties would delay preventative and reactionary maintenance on small problems due to budgetary constraints and over time what was initially a small problem turned into a major remedial repair issue.
This is no longer the case with the widespread use of industrial abseiling contractors. Abseil access is a unique and safe way to access remedial works areas to carry out all sorts of repairs on facades, bridges, towers and other structures which require specialist access services.
Our team of highly skilled and experienced rope access contractors facilitate minor and major repairs on a variety of site types. We have literally carried out over 5000 projects by rope access alone in the last 5 years. We pride ourselves on being able to get high quality work done with minimal cost.

We find that clients struggle in selecting the correct type of anchorpoint for a tiled roof. There are many different factors which affect this decision making process and we can assist you in making an informed decision regarding anchorpoint selection and how it relates to OHS, workcover and Australian standards requirements.
Different anchor points serve different purposes and have various limitations. We can advise you on which products suit your intended purpose to enable you to achieve the outcome you want. Our technicians are knowledgeable and experts in fulfilling the criteria of legislation surrounding height safety and fall prevention.
If you have a tiled roof requiring anchor points, don’t hesitate to get in contact with our project managers today.
Height safety technicians are able to provide fall arrest and facade access systems on most roof areas. One common scenario is a concrete slab roof requiring anchor points to either enable contractors to undertake work on the plant areas of the roof or to enable abseiling access to the facade for ongoing maintenance purposes.
Our team of anchor point installation professionals can offer the best knowledge, service and skill in providing you with the outcome that meets your needs and your budget. We minimise the amount of anchors required to give the maximum span of access wherever possible, whilst still meeting the requirements of Australian standards and workcover legislation, codes of practice and guidelines for working at heights.
Get in touch with our project managers to see how we can configure an anchor point installation to suit your needs.
Whether it’s for commercial, industrial or residential painting and coating, rope access painting is the best way to tackle a painting scope with difficult access. Don’t use old access techniques when the modern methods of access have already arrived. Rope access painting has become a method for building maintenance and access.
Abseiling is currently a common means of access when looking at a variety of building maintenance tasks. Painting is one such area of maintenance which requires cheap access and quality application. A painting project can become extremely costly when it involves using traditional access equipment. Abseiling to access the work area is cost effective, reliable and safe when undertaken by true professionals.

Our team of industrial rope access technicians carry out high quality, cost effective facade painting services and can give your building a fresh new look with minimal disturbance to tenancy and minimal access costs.
Abseil painting is the best method of access in most situations when you are painting a multi-storey building. It can either be used to paint the entire structure or just to get to those difficult to reach places on a building where stages and EWP can’t reach.
Facade painting by abseiling is now utilised by most of the top building maintenance companies and is recognised as the smartest way to go about any type of maintenance in a difficult access situation.
Many companies promote themselves as facade maintenance specialists, but when you really think about it, all they do is employ normal building access techniques such as scaffolding or EWP machinery to get to a difficult access location and carry out normal building maintenance tasks. When you do the sums, essentially you’re paying for a regular builder to do regular work at irregular costs, as you’re paying lots of money just for the access side of the project.
A good facade maintenance specialist will have all sorts of methods of access up his or her sleeve and one of them should be industrial rope access or abseiling. Using abseiling techniques to get to facade areas needing work is the best and more often the most cost effective way of carrying out works. Why not explore the possibilities of rope access and equip yourself with the best possible method of access for concrete repair, painting, joint sealing and any other works that need to be done to your facade?
Repairing items on a facade can be a costly process when you don’t go about accessing the area the smart way.
Utilising abseiling maintenance personnel is the way to eliminate all the costs to do with other forms of access, not to mention the inconvenience of blocking off large areas of ground areas around buildings.
