Absen Rope Access Specialists has assisted various air conditioning/extraction ducting companies throughout the UK in the installation, removal and cleaning of air handling/conditioning and extraction systems both internally and externally. Where new systems are installed we have abseiled inside the ducting to alter baffles, adjust and replace seals and also apply specialists fire retardant sealant to ensure the ducts integrity in the event of a fire.
We also carry out air tightness surveys where air leaks are detected; we can survey this internally and seal the duct from inside. We have also been able to advise companies on the access and egress of their own operatives to enable long term cleaning and maintenance programmes to be achieved. We have installed safety eye bolts and systems which have enabled the safe entry into ducts for annual cleaning and maintenance contracts.
Where old redundant systems have been identified we have also assisted in the removal and re-instatement of these both internally and externally. New, more modern systems have been lifted into place with our rigging expertise and fixing specifications. As specialists in this field we are able to offer confined space working teams to carry out surveys, cleaning and maintenance of existing duct work.
This can be arranged to fulfil the quarterly, and annual inspections required under some insurance companies to ensure the extraction ducting does not cause a fire hazard. These surveys are accompanied by a full written and photographic report for proof of cleaning and for the client’s information.
