Spider Access unveils new services at Dubai expo
Dubai, May 21, 2014
Spider Access, a Gulf-based specialist contracting firm, is showcasing new products and services at this year’s FM expo, which concludes today (May 21) in Dubai.
The new products and services unveiled have been designed to keep the exterior facades and infrastructure of the city’s plethora of high-rise buildings gleaming, said a statement.
Mazen Harake, managing director, said: “Spider Access sees FM Expo as an ideal opportunity to showcase what we can offer to potential customers. In addition to demonstrating our range of product and service offerings, we will be using the forum to connect with clients and suppliers and to identify and network with other industry players.
“As we are a business to business service, FM Expo is the perfect platform from which we can access the wider facility management industry and see what our competitors are up to,” he added.
The new facilities management devices revealed include the firm’s new Access Rail and Power Seat Systems.
The Access Rail has been designed for use as an adjustable anchorage point for external maintenance and has been designed to provide total flexibility and freedom of movement at height. It also allows the operator to lock themselves into one position while they are working.
The PowerSeat enables workers to ascend building facades quickly, stay in position longer and perform maintenance tasks in comfort. The system is ideal for a wide range of applications and as well as enabling quick access to all aspects of building exteriors, also functions as a portable winch and hauler.
“What we aim to show at FM Expo 2014 is that our rope access method of building exterior maintenance is one of the most effective, as it offers unsurpassed flexibility and the ability to reach difficult areas,” said Harake.
“The Dubai Mall to Dubai Metro walkway is a case in point. We secured the contract because we were able to show that we had the best solution to maintain all aspects of its exterior, including its underside, which other access methods, such as cradle, are unable to do as effectively. Buildings in Dubai are becoming more challenging to clean, as architects and real estate companies want to impose their unique vision on to the city’s skyline, so our rope access method is in more demand than ever,” he added.
FM Expo, a three-day dedicated facility management exhibition in the region, is being held in conjunction with Middle East Waste and Recycling, and Commercial Cleaning and Hygiene Middle East. - TradeArabia News Service
