CoxGomyl is a leading global provider of premium facade access solutions. Present around the world with over 60 years of experience, CoxGomyl has the broadest range of configurable building maintenance units (BMU’s) built on innovative, proven technologies which provide exceptional performance.
In the developing commercial architecture and building industry, emphasis is often placed on global developments that reach new heights and exceed records for their elevations. However, in a world where bigger is sometimes perceived as better, it’s also essential to recognise the significance of low-rise buildings within the architectural landscape, and consider the requirement for building maintenance.
CoxGomyl offer a range of configurable, economical facade access solutions for low-rise buildings which ensures that all facilities, regardless of size, can be provided with an advanced system integrated into its design. In particular, the CoxGomyl 1000 and 3000 Series product ranges provide attractive options due to their design best suited to buildings of uniform shape and low heights.
1000 Series range
The growing range of 1000 series products includes self-powered cradles, monorails, davits, and gantries. The sales team at CoxGomyl select from a collection of relatively standard equipment, to achieve a simple and economical façade access solution for buildings of relatively low architectural complexity and height.
3000 Series range
The CoxGomyl 3000 Series range of products are designed to provide reliable, economical facade access solutions for buildings of uniform shape, with prompt delivery times of 12 weeks or less for any machine in the range. The 3000 Series currently consists of 2 products, the E3000 and the F3000.
The 3000 Series building maintenance units are a compact, robust and lightweight machine, and can be entirely hidden from sight from ground level when not in use. They are particularly well suited to applications with limited space on the roof and buildings with roof gardens.
Examples of façade access solutions for low rise buildings are demonstrated in various case studies across the globe, each demonstrating the importance of implementing a high-quality facade access system regardless of its size.
15 Westferry Circus is a 10-storey building located on the Canary Wharf in London. With a peak of 44m, the low-rise office block received a CoxGomyl replacement BMU which met all the project requirements and undertook additional adaptations in response to the site surveys without impacting the cost.
The Abu Dhabi airport, while expansive in its land size, reaches a total height of only 52m. CoxGomyl were chosen to deliver a facade access system to maintain the uniquely shaped building, which encompasses 115,000 m² of glazing and 275,000 m² of aluminium cladding. As such, the large system provided includes a series of BMUs alongside monorail systems, gantries, aerial work platforms and abseil rails to achieve full coverage.
The Queens Hill Shopping Centre in Hong Kong includes the key feature of a large skylight with inclined glass surfaces. A practical access system was therefore paramount in ensuring this important feature could be regularly cleaned and maintained on both interior and exterior surfaces. The ideal solution developed by CoxGomyl is a comprehensive system of 10 traversing gantries; five for access to the outside and five inside the building for the underside of the skylightBack to News
