SKYLOTEC makes cleaning facades more efficient with “ACX” and “Skyrail”

The use of facade access systems and mobile elevated work platforms to clean and maintain complex building facades can often be costly and sometimes even impossible. SKYLOTEC now offers an alternative that makes working on such facade structures much easier: by combining the “Skyrail” rail system with the battery-operated “ACX” power ascender. This work device replaces access systems or mobile work platforms for building cleaners. “ACX” makes the place of work easier to reach and users can then carry out their work along the facade more efficiently and more flexibly.
