Absen Rope Access Specialists Ltd has undertaken many cleaning projects on both large and small scales, from construction sites to private residents that has involved various cleaning disciplines. We have teams of rope access technicians who are certified to work in confined a space which gives us the ability to carry out every aspect of cleaning required.
Extraction Duct Cleaning & Maintenance
Our specialists rope access confined space team were assigned to clean a vertical riser shaft which extracted from a busy kitchen. Due to the restaurant opening times this was carried out at night and weekends to cause minimum disruption and avoidance of loss revenue. Using specialist rescue and retrieval equipment, full face respirators the team took 2 nights to fully clean the riser working by task lighting and using head torches where more intricate cleaning was required. All cleaning was carried out to the client’s specification and was delivered on time and on budget.
Air Conditioning Services: Installation and Maintenance
Absen were required to carry out an internal survey of an air conditioning duct to determine where air was leaking out and to seal the problem areas. Using specialist access equipment the confined space rope access team were able to enter the duct at high level and descend carrying out the survey. Once the areas were identified fire retardant sealant was used and applied as the operatives ascended out of the duct. Due to the confined space entry there would have been no other way of completing the task.
Absen also assisted in the upgrading of a new air conditioning system at the prestigious 5 Star Manderin Hotel in Knightsbrigdge, London. Using a combination of chain hoists and rope access the ducting was hauled and lowered into position where it was then fixed into place. The tight access into the chimney meant teams were sometimes lowered into the chimney inside the ducting itself.
Window Cleaning Including Water Testing
Absen has assisted various companies around the world in the general window and builders cleaning of major iconic structures including Swiss Re in London and The Bahrain World Trade centre. Services range from contract to one off cleans.
Absen are able to offer specialists cleaning of building and structure facades including stone, cladding and glass. Where time has impregnated dirt and dust we are able to remove this with the use of high pressure water jet washers giving most buildings a new lease of life and a more aesthetically appealing appearance.
