July 25, 2012 - PRLog -- For tall, complexity or inaccessible building locations where regular maintenance is required, the use of a Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) is an ideal cost effective solution for total building control. A robust high rise cradle system rests on top of the building and can be configured to operate for both window cleaning, maintenance and light repair works.

The Shard – Application Brief:

More Control, working alongside E W Cox’s (Cox Goymal) and their Australian counterparts developed a high rise cradle system for the tallest building in the Europe, The Shard in London.

More Control wrote & commissioned the software used for operating the cradle at The Shard and calibrated the cradle arm.

An automated position control system was developed for positing the High Rise Cradle Control Arm used for glass cleaning and building maintenance. A cleaner would be able to simply select a position they wanted to move to and the cradle would move to said waypoint. The cradle arm would drop down to the position where the cleaner could safely scale down the building.

Via a selector switch, cleaners had complete position control of the cradle.

Due to the significant complexity of developing the cradle and getting it up to the 87th floor, the cradle unit is fitted with secure remote access to allow engineers remote monitoring of the cradle to ensure complete operator control and safety.

Via the use of the latest PLC logic controllers, More Control was able to set the numerous position control set points of the cradle and to calibrate all the control positioning.
