Specs & Details

  • Key features
  • Technical Information

Rostek BMU Cradles work perfectly with Rostek Monorail Access Systems and Roof Trolley Systems, but they can also be suspended from davits or gantries. BMU cradles can range from a one person cradle to platforms four metres in length. All cradles are lightweight and made with high-grade aluminium profiles with galvanised steel frames and stainless steel fasteners. The BMU Cradle is a cost effective option for facade access - especially when there is limited rooftop space.

There are three cradle options available; BMU1 (one person), BMU2 (two persons) and Modular Suspended Platforms (multiple people) to ensure a solution that is fit for purpose and makes economic sense.

BMU1 CRADLE

BMU1 is a single person Building Maintenance Unit which is equipped with one traction hoist and a wire winder. The steel and aluminium structure make it strong and light. Rostek BMU1 is designed and tested to conform with the EN 1808 standard. In addition to international standard requirements we offer a variety of optional details for improved efficiency. Our 1-Hoist BMU Cradle for one person is designed to access smaller areas of facade where it would be difficult or impossible to fit our larger 2-Hoist BMU Cradle.

BMU2 CRADLE

BMU2 is a two person Building Maintenance Unit which is equipped with two traction hoists and wire winders on both ends of the cradle. Steel and Aluminium structure makes it strong and light. Rostek BMU2 is designed and tested to conform the EN 1808 standard.

MODULAR SUSPENDED PLATFORMS (MSP)

The best solution when there is need for especially long platforms. Designed to be used with Rostek Davits, the Modular Suspended Platform can also be installed to any existing structure. Rostek Modular Suspended Platforms can be extended up to 40 feet (12 metres), which makes it easy to access wide areas of a facade in one go. The length of the platform can be easily modified to lengths between 5 and 40 feet. 

Modular Suspended Platform (MSP) is light-weight, innovative and easy to use suspended platform, which can be assembled to any length between 5ft to 40ft. MSP consists of one or two end modules and zero to four different length of middle modules. End modules consist hoist, wire winder, cable bin and control box. Middle modules provide large area of working platform for the operators. MSP has been designed and tested according to US standards but we can also offer a CE-version.
