Top Safety Features to Look For In a Window Cleaning Cradle

 

A suspended platform cradle is a type of suspended access platform that is commonly used for cleaning windows and façades on high-rise buildings. These are used for a wide range of tasks, including inspection, maintenance, and repair work. These allow workers to access hard-to-reach areas, such as sides of high-rise buildings, in order to help them do their work with ease. Such platforms also allow construction managers to keep track of workers throughout the project using video footage or sentry monitors. This information is invaluable when making corrections or adjusting tasks as needed.

Essential Safety Features to Look For In a Window Cleaning Suspended Platform Cradle

Here are some of the top safety features that a suspended platform cradle for window cleaning should have:

1. Guardrails

Guardrails are essential safety features that prevent workers from falling off the platform. They should be installed around the perimeter of the platform and meet the appropriate safety standards.

2. Safety Harnesses

Safety harnesses are personal protective equipment that prevents workers from falling off the platform in case of an accident. They should be worn by all workers and be properly anchored to the platform.

3. Emergency Stop Button

An emergency stop button is a safety feature that stops the platform in case of an emergency. It should be easily accessible to workers and located on the platform and the ground.

4. Overload Protection

Overload protection is a safety feature that prevents the window cleaning cradle platform from tipping over due to excessive weight. It should be built into the platform's control system and be able to detect any weight overload.

5. Backup Power

Backup power is a safety feature that ensures that the platform can be safely lowered to the ground in case of a power outage or other emergency. It should be equipped with a backup power source, such as a battery or generator.

6. Non-Skid Surface

The platform should have a non-skid surface to prevent workers from slipping and falling. It should be made of materials that provide good traction, even when wet.

It is important to follow appropriate safety protocols and only allow trained and authorized personnel to operate the platform.
