If you operate a ropes course best practice is to have a regime of inspections in place to ensure the structure remains in a safe and operable condition, in conjunction with regular in-house inspections undertaken by your own staff. An annual external inspection by a Type C inspector is required.
InsideOut has ERCA qualified ropes course inspectors with many years expertise. We hold relevant certification in wire rope inspection, pole inspection, PPE inspection and general ropes course inspection. We test ground anchors, belay anchors and stay wires to ensure their compliance with the standard.

Climbing Wall, Low ropes and a High Ropes Challenge Course with 4 huge elements - Constructed in March 1999 and it is still going strong.
Tony Burley, General Manager, Wiston Lodge
Insideout recently undertook a maintenance project at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena. It is built on a natural quarry rock face and hosts international climbing competitions. Insideout was tasked with replacing worn sections of track on the impressive aerial assault course - the highest in the UK, over the largest climbing arena in Europe! The course is situated at 30m above the arena floor (more than 5 floors high) and the climbing walls and boulders looked very small from our birds eye view.
