We make spaces accessible using techniques that are more efficient than conventional fixed platforms.
At AIM, our access services reduce resource requirement, shorten project timelines, lower project spend and increase safety performance. Our lightweight access platforms provide cost effective alternatives to traditional access methods.
AIM undertake work in the most restrictive areas whilst causing minimal operational impact. Our access equipment is light, safe, and quick to install, making our solutions more flexible and less intrusive than conventional access methods. Whether our clients need access for inspection, construction, or maintenance, we use innovation and ingenuity to exceed expectations.
At AIM, we use the latest access techniques to provide an efficient service. In planning an access project, we carry out a full survey, including load calculations and stress analysis.
Our specialist access capabilities, combined with our lightweight platforms, enable us to carry out the following activities:
/ Engineering surveys
/ Fabric maintenance
/ Non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection
/ Third party working
Quality is one of our core values and we believe this should extend to the equipment and materials we use for projects. Working from fail safe anchors, we use high strength industrial ropes that provide smooth movements. Using a system of slings and attachments enables us to gain access to even the most inaccessible of spaces, so we can carry out a range of construction and maintenance activities.
We adopt an agile methodology across all our services. Our focus is on delivering maximum value against our clients’ scope of work and budget. Because our access systems are both practical and quick to set up, our clients benefit from reduced project schedules.
Our versatile access methods have flexibility built in, meaning we can find the most cost effective approach to meeting our clients’ work scope. Our unobtrusive techniques mean our technicians can proceed while our clients’ plants continue to operate as normal.
An agile approach to access also helps minimise any associated risks with working at height or in constricted spaces. By focusing on adding value and creating a minimum viable product, any challenges are quickly identified and addressed by our expert team.
As one of our core values, we consider safety and the environment with every access project we undertake. The flexibility that comes with rope access makes it environmentally friendly. Coupled with the safety training that our team receives and the high-quality equipment we use, we meet all safety standards.
All our access technicians are trained to IRATA standards, providing our clients with peace of mind that we will achieve the highest level of competency. Our accreditations include ISO 45001 (Health and Safety), ISO 14001 (Environmental) and ISO 9001 (Quality Management).
We’re also compliant with Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. With IRATA membership, our rope access technicians are subject to continuous assessment and training. We ensure that all rope access equipment complies with European and international standards and is subject to rigorous inspection and testing.
