Modern steeplejacks do not operate within the confines of one access method – the ladder – they use every trick in the book to offer the best solution to their clients. Be that rope access, industrial drones, designed modular scaffolding, mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs) or suspended cradles, you can be assured that the steeplejack has consulted the hierarchy of control to offer the access method which is the safest, and most appropriate and cost-effective for your structure. Steeplejacks work on chimneys, silos, communications masts, roofs, storage tanks and all sorts of buildings every day, so are best placed to satisfy all the specialist work at height needs of your process engineering plant.
Not only do modern steeplejacks employ a diverse range of access methods, but they also offer a variety of services, making them a “one-stop-shop” for all your specialist work at height needs. From cladding to pointing, and roofing to lightning protection, the 21st century steeplejack is the ultimate steeplejack of all trades. Simplify your maintenance works now and consult a steeplejack for an unbiased, end-to-end, hassle-free process. The benefits of using a comprehensive service include limiting the number of contractors on site, minimising the potential for logistical issues, minimising the potential for safety issues and saving both time and money.
The Association of Technical Lightning & Access Specialists (ATLAS) was established in 1946 and is the trade association for steeplejacks and lightning conductor engineers in the UK. ATLAS steeplejacks take the multi-disciplined skill set of a steeplejack to the next level, by assuring clients of both quality service and workmanship. Contractor members undergo a stringent application process in order to enter into ATLAS membership, and are then audited annually to ensure continuing compliance with a strict set of criteria. Choosing an ATLAS member assures you of:
When you choose to use an ATLAS steeplejack, you are not dealing with an independent contractor alone. You are welcome to liaise with ATLAS in the unlikely event of needing to get any issues resolved – giving you added peace of mind. ATLAS also loves to hear from satisfied clients on the work its steeplejacks have undertaken.
ATLAS steeplejacks work on process engineering plants across the UK and abroad, and ATLAS has created a poster to demonstrate a sample of its access methods and services available at these sites. If you would like to receive a copy or copies of the poster in the mail, please complete this form. Alternatively you can download the digital file below.
