Monorails by XSPlatforms: maximum flexibility, minimum visual impact.

Easy facade maintenance for the most complex building designs.

MONORAILS FOR ANY FACADE

CUSTOMIZED FACADEXS MONORAIL SOLUTIONS

Our monorail systems are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Monorails are ideal for medium-rise buildings with complicated designs and hard-to-reach facades.

With buildings designs becoming increasingly unconventional, there is more demand for solutions that provide access to the entire facade, no matter how complex its design may be. Our monorail systems meet that demand.

A monorail system basically consists of two parts: the rails and a trolley which moves over the rails. Conveniently, a monorail system can be fixed to a building’s parapet or ceiling, which makes this system able to tackle even the most complex routes.

Installing monorails involves more than just fitting the monorail track to the contour of the building. Our monorail systems can be equipped with several innovative functions to make working on a facade a lot easier.

For example, our monorail systems can can be fitted with a hoist for lifting glass panels, which makes window replacements a lot easier. The hoist allows workers to fit glass panels without having to use much force.

This system works in combination with self-hoisting gondolas which allow users to position themselves in front of the facade using the central control panel.

OUR MONORAILS AND THEIR CHARACTERISTICS

We offer three different types of monorail tracks, depending on the type of trolley that is used and the desired route of the monorail system.

XS110

The XS110 monorail can be recessed or etched into a building’s structure. In this way, the monorail track has a minimum visual impact.

XS127

The XS127 monorail track is used for routes with vertical sections. In order to move upwards, this monorail requires a motorized trolley.

XS133

The XS133 monorail suffices for horizontal trajectories that are attached to the outside of a wall or ceiling from the beginning to the end.

MONORAILS WITH RESPECT TO ARCHITECTURE

The XSPlatforms trademark promotes BMU designs that do not negatively impact a building’s aesthetics.

This is well reflected in the way we design our monorail systems: if it’s not possible to integrate our monorails on the ceiling, the rail tracks can be color-coated so they don’t detract from the appearance of the building. In addition, the gondolas can also be disconnected from the trolley and parked out of sight.

Monorails can even be designed in such a way that they actually accentuate a building’s architecture. A prime example of this is our monorail system at STARPARC Schiphol-Rijk.
