Cleaning high rises and smaller buildings windows faces:
According to IRATA, human fall injuries happen twice a week. Statistics show that number of workers is growing constantly leading to an increased risk of human fall.
Despite glass facade look industrial, maintenance operations are very slow because of difficult access, non continuous process, limited facade access means and manual tasks. More over workers often have to do multiple tasks, like inspection which reduces their average productivity.
Due to reduced barrier to entry, a lot of competitors share the market. This leads to high competition and then to low margin. Seasonability and weather conditions make cleaning operations even more hard to manage.
Ground security areas often goes close to the road. Gardens and water often prevent ground access. BMU on roofs require qualified people with special abilities not hold by operators. Some building don’t even have any access equipment on roof: they must be installed and removed after operations. Set up of these equipements may be complex due to regulations and security reasons.
The robot is supplied with osmosis water from roof. A controlled hoist by Erylon is then anchored to the roof. Finally the robot is connected to the hoist umbilical and then placed above facade using the hoist or BMU’s pulley.
Operator can either control it from roof or work aside it
Robot automatically moves from top to bottom and then gets back to top. When a row is finished, operator moves the robot to the next row.
Hoist provides osmosis water and power to the robot through holding umbilical. Osmosis water is sprayed on windows while rotating brushes clean them. Succers press brushes against facades while robot is moving. Robot communicates with hoist to control its descent.
