This technique is used to access structures or areas that would otherwise be possible to reach via conventional methods. 

Some of the areas in industries require some maintenance at some point where rope access is preferred method such as industrial chimneys and smokestacks. 

Eliminates the need for Heavy Equipment: The unobtrusive nature of rope access systems minimizes the disruption on the ground which allows workers below to work easily without getting worried. However, this is not the case with heavy equipment and scaffolding.
