Facade elevators / monorail installations


Facade elevators for cleaning and maintaining facades can be moved vertically with continuous cable winches. The travelling and safety cables are automatically wound. The cables are fastened to special traverses mounted on monorail systems (facade rails) or on rail systems (on the roof). The vehicles can be driven electrically or manually. Depending on the static and structural requirements, the rail systems shall be made of either aluminium or steel.
