future facade

  1. 1. 2 Intelligent Building Skin Gleaming façades r ect the user’s image. Modern glazing architecture is capable of writing history.

The system is directly connected to the water supply, and Alucobond panels with detergent being added to the water automatically via a mixer unit. Water and detergent are sprayed on to the façade at the touch of a button. Then the integrated wipers clean the façade automatically. Customised parameters can be set for how much water is sprayed on the façade, and for how long. The frequency with which the wipers move over the façade can also be customised. The wipers are flexible, ensuring that the glass is always cleaned perfectly. Rain or moisture sensors can be used to trigger the cleaning process automatically.

An additional sliding module, which is running within the vertical system profiles, keeps the hamper close to the facade and ensures absolute safety. The base maintenance unit, which is mobile, is equipped with a beam, that carries the steel rope. The beam reaches from inside out through the service openings inherent in the facade system or the unit is based on top of the building. The mobility of this unit allows to use it anywhere in the building and even to use it for various buildings.iku ® maintenance unit
