What Is Cradle Window Cleaning?

Cradle access systems enable window cleaning companies to easily and efficiently clean an entire building. The building cradle is essentially a platform that’s suspended on a crane to provide flexibility for commercial window cleaning to commence.

The Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) must be in good functioning order and ready to use before it may be used. A reputable company should do this by thoroughly examining the service certificate, LOLER test certificate, and insurance certificate.

About One Blackfriars

One Blackfriars is a stunning addition to the cityscape of London, the building gazes down at the River Thames and is built by award-winning SimpsonHaugh.

The tower, which stands 170-meters tall and has 274 apartments, is perfectly positioned to overlook the South Bank, which is known as the “Home of the Arts.”

Overcoming Building Challenges

Cradle cleaning is a quick and efficient high-rise window cleaning technique that may be utilised on buildings where pulleys can be attached. It’s a practical option that requires few disruptions and has no height constraints.

It’s also a very safe solution and assures that tasks are being done correctly. It is run from the top down, so no machinery is required at ground level. Cleaning operatives can achieve an impeccable clean because they have all of the essential equipment on the cable – making it the best option for Blackfriars.

With proactive planning with the wind and understanding the Blackfriars building – the clean was successful via cradle cleaning.

To maximise the resources available, 6 window operatives at Aquamark Cleaning were trained so that 3 BMU’s could be used at the same time when there were low winds.

3 BMU’s provided a boost to complete the window clean in 3 months and meant that a high standard window clean was delivered regardless of the scale of the job.
