Special access systems
Optimal access solutions to safely, swiftly and cost efficiently execute work at site.
Most facilities have difficult-to-reach places. Sometimes only a small scope of work needs to be executed, while in other instances larger crews need to be deployed over extended periods of time.
There is no one-size-fits-all to efficiently bring technicians, equipment and tools together.
Full suite of access solutions
Multi-skilled, fast execution
By avoiding the costs and time related to renting, erecting, inspecting and dismantling scaffolding, rope access can reduce costs by 30-80% for a small modification job. In addition to this, rope access enabled work continues to demonstrate superior safety statistics.
We have a pool of in-house multi-skilled, IRATA certified technicians to apply rope access where and when needed to your projects.
For many situations, scaffolding remains the best option. To reduce costs, we continue to invest in better scaffold design software, system scaffolding, magnet supports and new materials. The latter includes much lighter high-tensile galvanized steel and aluminium scaffolding.
Add to that our composite Podium Step, and it proves that Stork innovates at every opportunity.
Combining access provision with minimized risk of dropped objects, netting can be an ideal way to execute work at heights. Once installed, netting also removes the requirement for vessel standby cover, which delivers significant additional savings.
We have diverse sizes available in-house, but can also deliver made-to-measure solutions. Netting can be applied for work positioning and also encapsulation.
Full rigging & lifting services
Rigging & lifting of equipment is often an essential component of construction and modification work. Before executing a job, we carry out thorough risk and safety reviews and develop a sound method statement.
If required, we can first simulate the job in a safe environment. Should a LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) focal point be needed at site, then we can provide that as well.
Drones, crawlers & other robots
Our growing fleet of robotic solutions is enabling fast and cost-effective execution of work in difficult-to-reach and / or hazardous places. This could be in confined spaces, but also in high, low, hot, cold and / or toxic environments. They can scan large areas quickly, allowing focused, more accurate inspection/remediation regimes to take place.
We work with our technology partners to deliver the latest innovations directly to your projects.
Extended Reach Breathing Apparatus System
Our Extended Reach Breathing Apparatus System (ERBAS) solves the industry challenge of awkward and difficult cylinder changes during confined space entry and evacuation. Instead of requiring you to replace your Flite air bottle (which can take 4-5 minutes), we have an ingenious air refill system that only takes 20 seconds to replenish your bottle. In cases of an emergency evacuation, this can be the difference between life and death.

Proven expertise in special access systems
Rope Access reduces costs flare modification by 33%
Stork was contracted to provide a load bearing scaffold design that would deliver the most cost-efficient access method to facilitate modifications to a platform crane.
After reviewing various access options, Stork recommended the use and design of steel system scaffold, which incorporated a system staircase.
