Collins arch is another example of how Facadexs provides unique and innovative access solutions for every building no matter the complexity, Not shying away from any challenge.
This extraordinary building required a custom approach to façade maintenance. We were able to design four installations to reach and maintain the entire façade, while keeping all machines out of sight in lockable garages, requiring a compact design. Additionally, the roof of the building now houses Australia’s heaviest BMU. Its undercarriage was specifically designed in a stepped formation, allowing it to travel across two levels at once, a first of its kind.
For this project, we also developed a “deploy with one button” function that allows the BMUs to manoeuvre out of the extremely tight garages without risking damage. We also have developed systems like a “side shift — pull-out” rail system that expands the effective reach of the roof mounted machine without the need for an extra machine or longer boom extension, by pulling the cradle horizontally along the façade to more distant parts of the façade.
