BMU Service, Compliance and Maintenance Testing

Façade Access Systems, integral to Working at Height, require meticulous attention to compliance and regular maintenance. To ensure the safety and reliability of our systems, compliance testing is conducted every six months, tailored to the frequency of use and load capacity. This rigorous testing schedule applies to both permanent and temporary Davit Arm Systems, aligning with industry standards such as:

  • BS EN 1808
  • BS EN 6037
  • LOLER Regulations (in accordance with BS EN 7985)

Our commitment to adhering to these standards guarantees the longevity and performance of our Façade Access Systems, providing you with peace of mind and a reliable solution for maintaining windows and façades.

Comprehensive Inspection and Certification

Heightsafe’s team of specialists stands as the safe choice for all your Work at Height compliance needs. Our comprehensive inspection, testing, and certification services ensure that your Façade Access Systems meet the highest standards. As building designs and regulations evolve, our experts stay ahead of the curve, adapting to the complexities of modern roof layouts.

Addressing the Challenges of Modern Roof Layouts

In response to changing building designs and regulatory landscapes, many roofs today feature complex layouts with Parapets, Guardrails, or Balustrades. While these additions enhance safety, they pose challenges for maintenance access, especially when Abseil work is required. Enter Davit Arms – the perfect solution.

Davit Arms seamlessly integrate with contemporary roof designs, providing a secure anchor point for Work at Height activities. Whether it’s routine maintenance, cleaning, or window inspections, our BMU Systems, including Davit Arms, offer a versatile and compliant solution.
