Gondolas – or cradles – are working platforms attached to a Building Maintenance Unit (BMU). They descent along a facade, transporting window cleaners or maintenance staff. Some gondolas are unrestrained and hang in front of the facade, while others are secured to the facade with a cradle restraint system. This could be for example Lanyards (ISA), soft ropes, combination of both, mullion guides, transfer rails or pull in restraints systems (for negative facades)
Working safe inside a cradle
In our vision, users inside a cradle at great heights must be able to do their work easily, safely and ergonomically. Through customization, we can incorporate the intended application of the BMU into its design.
