Affordable Building Access Solutions

There are various operational challenges when it comes to commercial building maintenance. One of the most common issues businesses face is accessing the entire exterior of the property to conduct routine maintenance.
Given the size and design of a contemporary building, accessing the façade to complete cleaning, maintenance, or repairs is challenging. The height and size of commercial properties make accessing all areas of the façade difficult and often impossible without suitable access hardware.
Our service provides affordable and flexible façade access solutions. We contract the latest access equipment to allow organisations to complete their building maintenance. Whether it is cleaning windows, removing grime from the façade, or restoring the entre exterior, our access services offer safe and effective solutions.

Our Services

As the access challenges differ from each organisation, we offer tailor-made solutions to accommodate all requirements. All service operators are fully licenced to meet current safety guidelines and compliances, ensuring a safe and efficient service you can trust.
We offer various access solutions including:

Building Maintenance Unit (BMU)

We use a range of building maintenance units to provide access to the building façade. Suspended from the roof, the BMU lowers maintenance staff downwards to provide access to the exterior surface.
This is commonly used to clean windows but can also be used for other kinds of façade maintenance, from inspections to restoration work.

Access Cradle

An access cradle is a suspended access platform that can be lowered and raised across the building. A versatile building access solution, a cradle is suitable for various types of exterior building maintenance tasks, including cleaning, inspections, surveys, and repairs.
The hardware suspended from various parts of the building, allowing quick and flexible access across at any height.


We offer access to a wide selection of scaffolding systems for streamlined façade access. Scaffolding is an affordable yet effective type of access system, making it a great solution for properties of every scope and size.
Scaffolding is erected quickly and to all current safety regulations, being suitable for various maintenance tasks. All platforms come with appropriate safety measures including wide surfaces, guardrails, and easy navigation from each platform.

Mobile Elevated Platform

A mobile elevated platform is a versatile piece of building access equipment suitable for various tasks. The main advantage these platforms offer is their mobility, being able to move to any part of the building where access is required quickly and efficiently. This is especially useful for working in tight spots or the building interior.
