Facade Design & Facade Access Systems

As 3D modelling and the technical capabilities of glass facades keep evolving, building design gets more and more unconventional and complex. Because facade design changes so rapidly, facade access solutions need to be adapted to ensure worker safety and easy access to all parts of the building’s facade.

Aesthetic or functional facade design?

Facades always have a functional objective. Strength, durability and fire protection always are parts of the functional objective of facade design. As these objectives can be met by various ways of building and building materials the real challenge is to combine these functions in an aesthetic and authentic design that will capture the imagination of the public.

Today the functional and aesthetic design of a building’s facade goes hand in hand and new building materials and architectural brilliance add boundless opportunities in facade design. Especially in the world of high-rise or skyscraper design the sky isn’t the limit anymore.

Facade design and the challenges for facade access equipment

Challenge 1: Reaching all parts of the building’s facade
