FLY SERVICE Engineering provides Access & Maintenance based on Rope Access going through a full design, fabrication, and supply process: from Feasibility to Construction Design, defining overall strategy, system layout, and design of single components.
We develop safe, simple, and bespoke systems, to adapt all possible facade geometries, even the most challenging.
Using rope access techniques as a work at height method, we design access and maintenance strategies for any shape, height, and size. We focus on maintenance issues as the replacement of parts of the facade and any other maintenance activities needed during the lifetime of the building.
WHY ROPE ACCESS?
We have adopted this access and positioning system for its safety, versatility and efficiency, all features that make Rope Access the most advanced work-at-height technique, especially when dealing with complex structures.
A large number of abseiling companies are operating worldwide in all geographic areas, with a high level of personnel training and uniform standard of performance.
The combination of the Rope Access features and the skills of our engineering team allows obtaining high-level results perfectly responding to the challenges and requirements of modern architecture.
A holistic approach with safety as the first issue
The system must guarantee the highest degree of safety to operators, with the most advanced and UP-TO-DATE access technology and equipment. Access strategies must be CLEAR AND INTUITIVE and must guarantee correct ERGONOMICS. Operators must be HIGHLY TRAINED. The safety issue must be their first concern. Robust knowledge of the use and maintenance of the safety systems and a high PERCEPTION OF RISK is the best countermeasure against falls from height.
The system must be easy to be used by each operator singularly and by the LARGEST NUMBER OF OPERATORS SIMULTANEOUSLY (given the dimension of the building) The SIMPLEST THE SYSTEM, the better, avoiding bulky and slow machines, privileging the use of simple devices The ACCESS STRATEGY must be easy and clear, studying short and specific moving procedures (access points-moving paths-egress points)
The system meets the needs of the present constructions without compromising the future utilization and maintenance of the project. Reduce negative human impact on the environment: Co2 FREE, NO NOISE, DO NOT USE FOSSIL ENERGY.
The system must be INVISIBLE to preserve the global image of the lightness of the structure. The presence of awkward and bulky machines permanently installed inside and outside would certainly spoil considerably the aesthetic of the building
CAPITAL COSTS and RUNNING COSTS: cost of manpower, cost of maintenance of the access system, the cost for running the access systems (energy costs) should be limited at maximum.
INTEGRATION: integration between different needs with SAFETY as a first issue
COORDINATION: strict coordination with all professionals involved in the design and construction
INNOVATION: SIMPLE SOLUTIONS FOR DIFFICULT PROBLEMS – to do this, search for the most up-to-date technologies – need of bespoke systems
TO ACCESS & MAINTENANCE
Each issue is related to the others. An optimal access system can be designed only if all these aspects are considered together as part of the same problem, and solved recursively.
NEW WORK AT HEIGHT TECHNIQUES
NEW IDEAS: bespoke tools to comply with specific functions
NEW MATERIALS: including composites and hi-tech materials
NEW TECHNOLOGIES: keep an eye on the most up-to-date technologies
FEASIBILITY, ACCESS STRATEGY AND DESIGN
Pre-Feasibility and Feasibility study to assess the main guidelines of the system, and a preliminary cost assessment.
Definition of overall strategies, system layouts, and design of single components, with special attention to the integration of the devices into the façade. Solutions are discussed, shared, and agreed upon with all professionals involved in building design and construction.
Calculation reports, drawings, Finite Element Analysis, and all required documentation for approval, fabrication, and construction.
Design, prototyping, testing, fabrication, and certification of new devices: anchor points, lifting systems, accessory devices, manipulators.
Assistance to the installation of all the items designed for the project through instructions, Method Statements, and on-site visits.
Assistance to the Façade Contractor for the traceability of the devices during the fabrication and installation process.
Conformity of the installation to the given standards and design specifications.
Time Cycle Analysis based on the study of pollutant and environmental conditions of the building site.
Specific instructions on how to perform the maintenance on the building, through paper and/or digital (RFID tech) documentation (sketches, animations, etc.) Possibility of training local personnel on-site on the specific progression.
Special solutions to the Builder to solve complex construction problems.
