Rope Access Painting / Re - Coating

Rope Access Painting Birmingham

We have completed today...... the re-coating of structural steel in the roof space of Millenium Point in Birmingham.

The structural steel was showing signs of corrosion due to water ingress, we informed the client of this during our high level cleaning works a few months ago...... Our brief was to aid climb across the structural steel to carry out the following-

  • Manual preparation of steelwork to create a key for the coating system.
  • Application of Combi Primer.
  • Application of intumescent coating using Brosteel 60. This consisted of applying 2 coats of Brosteel to create a 60 minute fire protection.
  • Application of CombiColour Gloss.
We have been delivering specialised Professional Rope Access Re-Coating Applications to Structural Steel, Silo's, Storage Bins and Buildings for over 12 years.

To retrieve our ropes we had to set up a pull through system so not to aid climb back over the newly re-coated steelwork.

Rope Access Silo & Confined Space Cleaning

Our Confined Space services are built around our vast knowledge of  Rope Access Cleaning,
Rope Access Inspection and Rope Access Maintenance to Silos, Ducting and Shafts.

Our technicians are experienced and qualified in working in the most hostile of Confined Space environments. Our technicians are fully trained in confined space entry, egress and rescue.

All projects are subject to a detailed site survey, where risk assessments and method statements are supplied as a matter of due process conforming to the Confined Space Regulations 1997.

Equipment....Our technicians are fully trained in the use of air monitors.....We use Drager X-AM2000 personal monitors..Prior and during entry our technicians constantly test for Oxygen levels, Carbon Monoxide levels, Hydrogen Sulphide and LEL’s such as Methane.


We use a variety of lighting dependent on the situation....most of our situations are EX or IP areas, therefore requiring both ATEX and IP rated equipment.

We use a mixture of Petzl EX headtorches and Wolflite Inspection / Lifelites

For our main EX lighting we use for internal inspection of shafts and ducting slam hornet lighting
for external EX lighting to our areas we use


The Confined Spaces Act of 1997 and the PUWER Act of 1998.

At Complete Access we ensure that our employees that are engaged in entering a Confined Space are trained to do so and have suitable work equipment to enter that working environment and carry out the task safely.
This applies to all works in a confined space.
