We can provide a total cleaning and facilities solution
Using a traditional lambie, blade and scrim, we clean internal and external glazing including entrance door glazing. If there are no alternative access options for work above hand height then glazing can be cleaned via ladder work including V ladders, extension ladders and step ladders. Ladder stops or a team member footing the ladders ensures best practice for health and safety is adhered to. Where appropriate for safety purposes we also utilise extension poles to minimise working at height.
The safest method of cleaning windows, cleaning from ground level, uses the Brodex water fed pole system which also combines the benefits of de-ionised water, eliminating the need for detergents, chemicals and concern over the environmental impact or health and safety.
Trained to TAG level 2 supervisor level, our team use a variety of suspension equipment to abseil from the top of buildings. Equipment includes Belay bars, Jib arms and our own A frames and dead weight trolleys. All equipment whether ours or the clients is regularly checked, tested and certificated for safe use by LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations).
Team members wear full body harnesses, in order to access eyebolts and man safe systems using a lanyard and carabiner to further access glazing outside windows or on balconies. Harnesses and equipment are checked 6 monthly under LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) inspection.
Are external maintenance units enabling access to external elevations. They are checked on a 6 monthly basis by an external access/maintenance company who also provide training and certification in the correct usage of the equipment. All our operators are trained in use of full body harnesses and lanyards when undertaking all building maintenance unit activities.
Within a building we also use gantry systems to access large glazed areas with atriums where once again fall arrest procedures would be adopted.
Using an aluminium tower, our team are certified by PASMA to erect scaffolding towers in the safest manner in order to access problematical areas such as high level internal glazing where MEWPS are not appropriate.
MEWPS include scissor lifts, spider lifts and our own 30 metre lorry mounted access platform (Cherry Picker). Our operators are also qualified to work with MEWPS ranging from 22 to 47 Metres and are IPAF certified to the highest levels.
Where access allows using scaffolding or a MEWP, our specialist team are able to install humane pigeon spikes to window ledges to prevent birds from landing and roosting minimising the soiling of buildings.
