Last Updated: 11th December 2023

Key Features and Functions:

Often referred to as a gondola, gantry, or glass replacement unit, a BMU plays a pivotal role in providing the highest level of safety for Façade workers and the general public. Beyond safety, our BMUs offer comprehensive access to all parts of the Façade, seamlessly integrating into the architectural design of your building.

Collaboration with Architects:

At Heightsafe, we understand that each building is unique, presenting different design challenges. We collaborate closely with architects to tailor our BMUs to the specific requirements and objectives of the building. Whether the installation involves free-standing tracks for full roof perimeter traversal or a static location, our commitment is to deliver a 100% safe, aesthetically pleasing, and prompt solution.

Efficient Cleaning and Maintenance:

Cleaning and maintaining towering skyscrapers can be a daunting task. Our Façade Access Equipment, including BMUs, provides a secure and efficient solution for cleaning windows from top to bottom. This ensures not only the pristine appearance of the building but also the safety of maintenance personnel.

Compliance Testing and Maintenance:

Due to the significant load capacity of our BMU systems, it is a legal requirement to conduct compliance testing twice annually. At Heightsafe, we go above and beyond, recommending four inspections annually, including two load test inspections. Inadequate maintenance schedules can compromise safety and result in long-term costs. Our comprehensive inspection, testing, and certification service guarantees that your BMU system is maintained according to manufacturers’ recommendations, ensuring full compliance and optimal performance.
