Building Maintenance Units (BMU) For Enhanced Building Control Solutions
A Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) is an ideal modern solution for buildings where regular maintenance is required in inaccessible locations. A powerful cradle system offers an economic solution for window cleaning, maintenance & repair works.

The BMU is able to provide access to external surfaces (and internal atriums) of a building. The working platform (swinging stage) is capable of being raised or lowered in vertical drops.
With each building that a BMU is installed, there are numerous factors to take into consideration. As every building has a differing factor of design, shape and building material, it is paramount to safe operation and successful implementation of a BMU that all building considerations are taking into account. For particular high structures, the correct calibration of the cradle to response to wind factors can be a crucial aspect in the safe operation of the cradle arm.
To ensure the safety of all workers who are providing maintenance / cleaning services on a building, the 2005 Work a Height Regulation Act has meant that a focal point of any BMU is its ability to operate safely.
It is therefore essential to keep any BMU equipment in good working order for the operatives and to ensure that a building façade is kept clean and well maintained and to comply with legislation. In order to ensure this, More Control provides a full comprehensive maintenance service, keeping the facade access equipment in good condition and complying fully with all current legislations.
Working alongside several building maintenance companies and Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) companies, More Control is able to provide software programming, cradle calibration & installation. Furthermore, to ensure that each BMU unit is fully secure and conforms to latest regulations, More Control provides ongoing maintenance and testing. More Control engineers carry out both preventative & planned maintenance and reactive repairs to all types of suspended BMU’s.
Utilising the latest in PLC logic controllers & position control technology, More Control is able to set numerous position control set points of any BMU and calibrate all the control positioning points.
