Roofcars image

Roofcars - TRACTEL® Swingstage®

TRACTEL® Swingstage® Roofcars provide a complete automated system to access exterior building facades.

Access to the platform is at the roof level and does not require the operator to assemble or dismantle or manually move equipment.

Engineered safety devices control and monitor all machine functions to ensure complete operator safety and protection of all building surfaces.

Monorail  image

Monorail - RAILSCAF®

For recessed or overhanging facades, sloped roofs, and the inside of glazed atriums. Monorail Systems are frequently the best practical solutions for buildings with cantilevered eyebrows. Monorails closely follow the facade, with Tracmod powered platforms suspended from trolleys to access various points of a structure.

TRACTEL®''s unique RAILSCAF monorail is designed to closely follow the roof line with manual or powered trolleys for access to the facade. RAILSCAF can be installed along an incline, providing access to facades below pitched roofs and areas with ground obstructions.

Fixed Davits image

Fixed Davits

Portable davits and powered platforms are the most economical solution for building access in North America on structures no higher than 490 feet from grade.

TRACTEL®'s two-piece davits are designed to tilt to horizontal by mechanical means before detachment from the davit base. When the arms are lowered, the davit boom can be easily separated from the davit mast for transport to the next work location and for ease of storage when not in use.

The davit mast is equipped with transportation wheels to provide ease of movement from one location to another and to protect roofing surfaces.

Powered Davits image

Powered Davits

Track mounted Powered Davit Carriage building maintenance units are designed for low, mid and high-rise buildings.

The equipment suits applications where davits cannot be physically moved due to other roof top equipment, parapets greater than 6 feet or less than 42 inches, limited roof access and too narrow an area in which to land a powered platform.

Davit carriages are capable of servicing buildings with heights of up to 650ft. (200 m) with roof mounted hoists and 490 ft.(150 m) with self powered platforms.BR>

Stabilization Anchors image

Stabilization Anchors

National Safety Codes require all suspended building maintenance equipment on structures over 130'' (150'' or 45m in Canada) require intermittent stabilization anchors installed in the fa'ade to provide for wind sway protection.

Stabilization can be provided by a continuous mullion track or by intermittent stabilization anchors placed every three floors or 50 feet (whichever is less) starting from the top of the building and repeating to grade in line with the support system above.

Intermittent stabilization systems are mandatory and as designed can only be used correctly when the platform comes from the roof down. The intermittent stabilization system will not work or meet code in any ground rigged application.
