Spiderman does final facade check
A dedicated team of abseiling 'superheroes' inspects a facade
Large-scale cleaning-solutions company Spider-Style has a unique answer to the perennial problem of dirty windows – it sends in its dedicated team of abseiling ‘superheroes’ to inspect, fix and clean building façades from the top down … and they will even do it ‘Spiderman’ style by donning Spiderman suits.
“Abseiling, or rappelling, refers to the use of ropes to scale steep slopes, and is popularly used among rock-climbers,” said Spider-Style MD Mazen Harake. “We have adapted the technique for use in the cleaning and maintenance of high-rise and residential buildings.”
In fact, Spiderman was recently seen performing the final cleaning duties on the façade of the new Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach at The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence. Visitors to the area were noticeably amused by the aerial acrobatics of Spider-Style’s cleaning technician, who used his ‘spider-sense’ to abseil with grace along the hotel’s exterior while occasionally waving to admiring spectators.
“We believe in finding the passion and fun in everything we do. If we can have Spiderman clean our exterior, then why not? It puts a smile on people’s faces,” commented Mövenpick GM Peter O’Connor. Spider-Style’s technicians are all highly-trained, highly-skilled and experienced abseilers who are happy to combine their technical proficiencies with their love of abseiling in order to perform their duties.
Their use of safe, non-damaging rope access systems and advanced technology provides difficult-access solutions for the cleaning, painting, repairing and general maintenance of building façades. “A big plus for employing Spider-Style’s services is our sparing use of machinery, which helps to preserve the integrity of sensitive building façades.
“Yet our approach intensifies surface contact for superior cleaning. We can perform any height-related cleaning and maintenance job done much quicker and with more thoroughness than anyone else,” said Harake.
