SPECIALIST ACCESS SYSTEMS
Vertech and Abseil Access our sister company have been pioneers of Industrial rope access services and specialist access in New Zealand. We were responsible for importing the first engineered decking systems to the Asia Pacific and designed and installed the first engineered safety netting and tension netting systems in the region.
We are proud to say that we have been and continue to be at the forefront of driving positive change and driving access innovation which has reset industry norms.
Being a holistic access provider, we are recognised industry wide for providing the right access systems for each application and our vision is to educate people of the positives and negatives of each system to drive safety, cost and time efficiency across our industry.
IRATA ROPE ACCESS
Our IRATA rope access New Zealand underpins our range of capabilities and packages, ensuring a safe, efficient and economical approach to inspection, testing, maintenance, construction, and decommissioning across multiple sectors.
Today Vertech is one of the largest providers of rope access tradesmen and inspectors’ in Australia and New Zealand. We hold IRATA accreditation as an operator and training provider with one of the best custom-made training facilities in the southern hemisphere.
Our engineered decking system is a lightweight, versatile work platform designed for pipe racks and under-deck areas such as bridges, jetties and helidecks. This dynamic system has been proven globally and is quick to install and remove with minimal wind loadings or contact points, offering up to a 60% time saving compared to scaffolding systems.
Vertech is proud to hold a multi-site exclusivity agreement with Velo Tech Systems Ltd for their V-DECK system.
This truss-based system adds total flexibility as a work platform, removing some of the requirements for long clear runs needed for engineered decking. This innovative system is up to 90% lighter than scaffold, is fully compatible with scaffold, boasts zero contact points, and can be installed up to 80% faster than traditional access systems in optimal scenarios..
For projects not requiring heavy lifting, heavy traffic or encapsulation these rated ultra-lightweight systems can be erected and dismantled at an unprecedented speed in areas where access would otherwise be limited to large scaffolding or decking systems. They are minimally affected by wind or water loading and costs a fraction of other access systems available.
CUSTOM ACCESS PLATFORMS
Vertech provides custom work platforms. This approach is especially useful when access is required to tight or unusual geometries (such as offshore platform legs, jetty pylons and flare bridge structures) and is an effective method of engineering out ongoing costs or risks when accessing the work front.
FALL ARREST NETTING
Fall arrest netting designed to ISO standards is an ultra-lightweight, dynamic solution to protect plant, process and people. Where a secondary fall protection method is required, working at height operations are being completed, or work fronts at multiple elevations within the same load path occur, this system is often the solution.Vertech has installed the largest offshore fall arrest netting in Australia, used netting extensively for dropped object prevention for both large and micro level debris, and used these systems on vertical structures to facilitate multiple work fronts both on and offshore across multiple sectors.
