About Us

SAS is a family-owned company with over 30 years of height work experience. Based in Perth Australia and proudly Australian-owned and operated.  Owner and director, Lance Gelden, is a keen rock climber, and entered the fledgling rope access industry in Cape Town in 1996.  With a love of height work, and a degree in electrical engineering, it was a natural progression to move into telecommunications as a technician and rigger.

High Maintenance Rope Access was founded in 2011 and was built from scratch, starting with service delivery to the building maintenance sector in Perth, Western Australia.  Over time, the company added more experienced and dedicated crew to the team, expanding capabilities in facade maintenance, construction and painting.

In mid-2017, we changed our trading name to Special Access Services, feeling the change of name would suit our changing workload and capabilities better as we consolidated our place in the industrial rope-access sector.  We simultaneously maintained our window and façade cleaning works under our SAS Window Cleaning management and team.  Diversifying the two entities enabled better organization and service delivery – with the option of combining forces as required to provide a large, diverse crew.

Our client list has been steadily growing, and our services have expanded to industrial, energy and telecommunications sectors. With extensive background in telecommunications, rigging, rope-access and height work – and with the addition of our core crew of trades, we have been successfully providing service to a wide range of projects.

We thrive on challenging jobs, and always work closely with our clients to provide the best possible access solution and results – with minimal site disruption, cost or hassle.

We make sure that all members of our crew share our love of working at height.  We know that our work is good – because we enjoy what we do!

We pride ourselves on quality work, service and delivery – all points that have driven our growth in recent years, and our unique ability to provide small business service – with big business capability.
