Our Services

Our extensive range of services enables us to meet any facility servicing requirements of our clients efficiently and cost effectively


Design, Testing & Certification


Utilising our considerable experience with abseil, Building Maintenance Units (BMUs), swing stages and fall protection systems, we can design, test and certify your height access solutions – saving time, money and lives.

Our registered Independently Qualified Person (IQP) can carry out your annual Building Warrant of Fitness, including any permanently installed exterior access systems under Section K of the code.

Our team has extensive experience working with Building Maintenance Units (BMUs) and will find a solution to meet your access needs.

We offer consultancy, design and installation, and provide ongoing annual servicing and certification as required under Section K of the Building Warrant of Fitness code.

Every component we use in our height access systems fully complies with AS/NZS 1981 standards.

We are the only New Zealand agent for the Guardian Fall Protection System. The self-traversing, New Zealand-made system is constructed of stainless steel and can be engineered for any application.

We use stainless steel wire rope which has the following characteristics:

  • 8mm (minimum breaking strength 28.2kn)
  • 10mm (minimum breaking strength 44kn)
  • 12mm (minimum breaking strength 63.3kn)

For more detailed specifications of the componentry we use, please ask, we are more than happy to provide this information.

Height access is a growing industry; it also is a hazardous one to work in. We can work with you to establish safe work practices and ensure height access on your site is safe, compliant and cost effective.

Our audits cover the policies and procedures relating to your height access sites, hazard identification, and come with a report outlining recommended improvements.

We also offer:

  • Appraisals and training of height staff
  • Rescue and recovery drills and simulations

Properly trained staff and contractors are requirements of the 1992 Health and Safety Act.

Guardian Fall Protection System Training is available directly through us, please email csc.phase@tps.co.nz for more information.

All other rope-related, NZQA-accredited training is carried out through our accredited training providers, Tai Poutini Polytechnic (TPP) and Vertical Horizonz.

TPP runs the New Zealand School of Scaffold and Rigging through its Auckland and Christchurch campuses. Courses include:

  • Industrial Rope Access (the minimum qualification for working on rope in New Zealand)
  • Fall Arrest
  • Suspended Scaffolding

Height Access


Phase 1 means just that; we want to be involved in planning your short or long-term height access requirements from the beginning to give you a safe, practical and cost-effective solution.

We can identify and design your height access requirements.

Architects and developers regularly call on our input at the design phase to ensure buildings and structures have practical, safe and cost-effective height access solutions.

We also offer advice on recommended installation, the certification the system will require, and what training is necessary for your people to use it.

Installing height access systems is a complex task. We can oversee even the most challenging project, managing it from initial consultancy, through design, fabrication and installation. We will also certify your new system for compliance under the building code.

Abseil is the most cost-effective way to access exterior walls and confined spaces.

This access solution is ideal for light tasks such as window cleaning, façade wash down, painting, and inspections.

We can specify, design, install and certify your Industrial Rope Access (IRA) requirements.

Height Systems


We have a range of systems that will help you gain temporary or permanent access above, including:

Suitable for low-level ladder access, ladder hooks provide a secure holding over gutters, on flat or angled walls.

Our access hatches can be installed with a fixed, pull down or folding ladder.

Rooftop walkways – made of either aluminium, plastic or painted marine ply – will protect your roof from foot traffic damage.

Handrails can be designed and installed alongside any access hatch or walkway, providing an extra level of safety.


Ideal for temporary access to the façade of your building. We have suspended scaffolds for hire and qualified suspended scaffolders to install them on your site. We can also service your wire ropes and winches.
