The CoxGomyl 1000 Series range is designed for use on buildings of low complexity. The sales team at CoxGomyl select from a collection of relatively standard equipment, to achieve a simple and economical solution. The 1000 Series range is divided into two main groups.
The economical short reach choice using a Drum Hoist. With a well thought out design, EC machines are low maintenance and safe to operate.
Like the EC, the K Type machines are also made from standardised components and are designed to be an economical choice, with reach of up to 3 metres. The K Type is an ideal choice for applications where the roof of the building does not offer a continuous and levelled runway for a single BMU. In these cases, a multitude of different types of systems need to be deployed. By sharing a common self-powered cradle between the different systems, a significant cost saving for the client is achieved.
Like the K Type, the U Type machines are also made from standardised components and are designed to be an economical choice, with reach of up to 10 metres. The U Type has the same selection criteria as the K Type with the extra advantages of having a higher mast, and is therefore able to go over higher parapets with extra reach capability.
The monorail system consists of an aluminum track, fixed with steel brackets on the side of the building or underhung in a recess. The system is ideal for buildings that do not allow enough space on the roof slab for a roof-based machine, and also ideal where large recesses in building elevations cannot be reached with an approaching system within the 5000 Series.
Mounted on steel bases on the roof, the davit system consists of aluminium or steel arms that can be dismantled and moved to a different set of bases on the roof to access a different area of the building. Davits are used in conjunction with a self-powered cradle that can go up to 8 metres in length. After use, the davits and the cradle can be stored in dedicated areas so they are out of sight, allowing the whole roof area to be used for other purposes.
The gantry system is the best and safest access solution for an atrium or skylight on a lowrise building. It consists of an aluminium or steel truss on the sides with a deck or steps made of galvanized steel grate.
Also known as the platform, scaffold, cage or gondola, the self-powered cradle is a key component of the 1000 Series, as it can be used with any rigging system conceivable. A rigging system can be as simple as an overhead eye bolt in the ceiling, a davit, a monorail,a gantry, a roof based machine, a crane etc. The advantage of this type of cradle is that a minimum number are required to achieve an acceptable cleaning cycle. Using a selfpowered cradle combination with as many rigging systems as are required to cover the building delivers significant savings.
