Abseil Coping

What is Abseil Coping?

Abseil coping is aluminium crest coping which has been engineered to withstand abseil loading applications for regular window cleaning or building maintenance of high-rise buildings.

This type of streamlined metal coping ensures the supporting parapets for abseil loads have a safe and reliable base to attach to, without compromising the building’s aesthetic or structural integrity.

By incorporating this type of highly engineered aluminium coping into their building design, architects ensure that the property’s façade can remain in excellent condition for years to come.

Abseil wall coping maintains clean, unobtrusive lines to parapet walls, flat and pitched roofs whilst offering a robust performance. All copings are made to suit individual project requirements and are available for quick delivery. Complete system with fully fabricated fittings available.
