Cleaning high rises and smaller buildings glass facades:
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. Moreover 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. BMUs 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 equipement may be complex due to regulations and security reasons.
The robot is hung by its umbilical cable from the hoist seated onto the roof. This special hoist controls the speed of the robot whilst the robot takes care of the cleaning and window crossing. Thanks to extra low water consumption, the robot carries it’s clean pure water into its tank and store the wasted water into a second dedicated tank.
The operator can either control it from roof or from the ground through a remote controller
Robot 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 power to the robot through holding umbilical and osmosis water when docked on roof. 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.
