Welcome to Canopy Access the home of all things arboreal!

Whether you are a scientist wishing to unlock the secrets of the rainforest canopy; a filmmaker wanting to capture canopy critters on camera, or an enthusiast with a simple desire to climb trees for fun – we are here to get you up and down safely.

Our background

CAL was set up in the nineties to provide technical rigging solutions for the Wildlife TV industry and has been providing rope access, training and consultancy on a full time basis ever since.

We regularly operate in extremely remote forest locations throughout the tropic and temperate regions. From the Amazon and Congo to the towering forests of Asia and beyond.

More than fifteen years of providing safety at height for working on ropes in these extremely challenging and dynamic environments has earned CAL unparalleled experience to confidently offer a variety of associated services. Rope training, canopy filming, scientific research support and canopy construction to name a few.

We hold full combined world-wide insurance for working on ropes in any environment and adhere strictly to UK Health and Safety Executive criteria wherever we operate. All of our staff hold extensive UK HSE accredited qualifications for working at height and we provide full risk assessments/method statements as a matter of routine. So whether you are planning to work in Britain or Papua New Guinea you can rest assured that you are in very safe hands indeed.

Here are some of the many organisations we are proud to have worked with over the years:
