Company Culture

Off The Ledge is known for it's company culture of honour and respect.
We have people tell us that they would love to join the company, if only they didn't have to work at height!
We joke that like "Hotel California" that "you can check out anytime but you can never leave!"
There is a strong brotherhood bond when you hang with your teammate for 8 hours a day on nothing more than two 11mm ropes .

The team not only enjoys one another on the face of buildings.
Whether it is their daily dart competitions, weekend surfing trips, or the annual snowboarding Christmas trip to Cardrona, it is a high energy culture that daily celebrates the gift of life!

Our hope is that our crews will not only provide a great trade service for you, but free of charge, may brighten up your day
