Façade Access Strategy Design

Innovation in Façade Access

Innovation in Façade Access

Building owners and tenants have high performance expectations from ‘modern’ and iconic building envelopes but they must be kept clean and well maintained. Maintainability will be ongoing over the life of the building. It is one of the key aspects when detailing the façade and determines the budget attributed to the façade package. 

What is façade access STRATEGY design?

Modern façade materials require regular cleaning and maintenance to warrant performance which entails working at height. Where the building surfaces and services are beyond the nominal reach; a roof or ground-based façade access strategy and / or techniques will be required to achieve safe and efficient cleaning.

Façade access is not limited to tall structures constructed of specific materials such as glass. Façade access solutions are applicable to all kinds of buildings and structures. Cleaning and maintenance strategies determine the frequency at which access must be provided for periodic cleaning and long-term maintenance. These factors combined with the capacity of the access equipment will determine whether you should use permanently installed or temporary access equipment.
