New A380 Kingkerswell Bypass De-vegetation Project


Over an eight week period, SAS Rope & Rail removed all vegetation, including mature trees, along the route of the new A380 Kingskerswell bypass. A fifteen man team worked during weekend possession/ weekday under COSS site warden supervision, and among them our skilled team of rope access technicians were able to safely and easily access the tricky areas of de-veg works.
The project was completed two weeks ahead of schedule, successfully avoiding any interruption to the bird nesting season.

Rope Access – Commercial Building Clean


During April 2013, SAS Rope & Rail completed a large commercial building clean, removing algae and airborne dirt. All areas were treated by hand with algae remover before being pressure washed, leaving the building looking as new. Dead Weight Trolleys were used as a portable anchorage solution for the rope access technicians because there were no available anchor points on the roof of the building.
Dead Weight trolleys are available at Please contact SAS Rope & Rail at for more information or a no obligation site survey and quote.
