Facade Access Systems

In the current evolution of high-rise skyscrapers and building facades it is becoming more common to have facade access systems.

A facade access system is a system that gives workers the possibility to carry out their day to day activities at the exterior (or interior, like gantries, for example) facade of a building. Facade access systems provide safe access to all parts of the building facade, including the hard-to-reach places.
