What is Manual Scaling?

A highly effective technique used to remove loose rocks and debris from cliffs and slopes. Our skilled Rock Remediation Technicians (RRTs) utilize scaling bars, airbags, or hydraulic jacks to carefully dislodge and remove unstable rocks. This process helps to stabilize the remaining rocks and boulders, improving safety and preventing damage to property and infrastructure.

Our Manual Scaling Process:

Manual scaling is a rockfall mitigation technique that involves the use of skilled personnel and specialized tools to remove loose rocks and debris from cliffs and slopes. The process typically includes the following steps:

Step 1


Before starting the scaling process, a thorough assessment of the slope or cliff face is conducted. This assessment helps to identify loose rocks, potential hazards, and areas that require scaling.

Step 2

Equipment preparation

Skilled Rockfall Remediation Technicians (RRTs) gather the necessary equipment for the scaling operation. This equipment may include scaling bars, airbags, or hydraulic jacks.

Step 3

Safety measures

Prior to commencing scaling, safety measures are put in place to protect the RRTs and ensure a secure working environment. This involves the use of safety harnesses, two rope systems, helmets, and other personal protective equipment.

Step 4

Scaling technique

The RRTs carefully approach the slope or cliff face and begin the scaling process. They use scaling bars, airbags, or hydraulic jacks to dislodge loose rocks and debris. These tools are specifically designed to provide leverage and control during the scaling process.

Step 5

Rock removal

Once loose rocks are dislodged, the RRTs carefully remove them from the slope or cliff face. This may involve manually carrying the rocks to a designated collection area or utilizing other equipment for larger or heavier rocks.

Step 6


After the removal of loose rocks, the remaining rocks and boulders on the slope or cliff face are assessed for stability. If necessary, additional measures such as rock bolting or mesh installation may be implemented to further stabilize the area and prevent future rockfall incidents.
