About us

Height Specialists Middle East was founded in 2014 by both regional and global specialists to deliver quality Inspection, Repair and Maintenance services to a variety of industries at the highest quality of delivery and safety.

One of the leading companies

Since the establishment in 2014 in the UAE, Height Specialists has progressively grown to become better known and respected as one of the leading companies in the region in the provision of Rope Access solutions to clients in multiple industries and sectors. We offer practical and efficient solutions for work at height and difficult to access locations.

When Rope Access techniques are applied, locations at height which are otherwise difficult to access are reached faster and safer. Additionally, the impact on other operations is kept to a minimum. Height Specialists offers its clients these advantages by using unconventional working methods. In all services offered by Height Specialists, safety and expert knowledge are key.

Core values


Safety is our key priority in which everyone feels safe enough to feel vulnerable.


It is vital to know that we work with full transparency and are able to trust each other to deliver work of the highest of standard.


Client, customer, employee or supplier, our reliability and honesty are our strengths.


We at Height Specialists believe in full accountability for our work and actions. This is something we teach and carry through all aspects of our business.


We see ourselves and our clients and suppliers not as organizations, but as the sum total of the people that make up those organizations, and we treat all people at every level with unlimited compassion.


Safety is our key priority in which everyone feels safe enough to feel vulnerable.


Safety First. Working safely is a necessity for the existence of Height Specialists. Not only during the execution of our work but also within the organization we strive to create a safe climate in which everyone feels safe enough to be vulnerable.

Stop Work Authorization

Ensuring the safety of our employees, our clients and suppliers and the general public is our priority, which means that safety takes precedence over ALL.

Therefore, I expect you to:

  • Respect the rules and procedures and follow the instructions
  • Intervene when people are at risk – A “Do Walk By!” Attitude
  • Respect each other and the environment

If it doesn’t feel right STOP work directly. There will never be sanctions for stopping unsafe work or for disclosing danger or injury.
