The Shanghai Tower: The Second Tallest Building in the World

eurosafesolutions The Shanghai Tower: The Second Tallest Building in the World The Shanghai Tower opened in 2016 and is one of the world's most impressive architectural marvels. Sitting above the city's financial district, it represents a green future for China. A tower so tall, you can only see the top on a clear day. The tower will have a suspended access system, which is a flexible, safe and cost-effective method for access and working at height. One of the most common types of these is called a suspended access cradle system. This system is made up of a functioning platform, fitted with man riding hoists and a safety device that climbs steel wire rope, which is attached to a suspensions system, often fixed to a roof. Shanghai Tower Key Stats itl It is the second tallest building in the world but is the tallest by height for usable floors.

The tower represents an encouraging symbol of China's new commitment to environmental friendliness. It incorporates several green architectural elements and was praised as “the greenest super high-rise building on earth." For example, the 120° twist is intended to reduce wind loads on the building by 24%, allowing the construction team to use 25% less structural steel than a non-green design of equal height. Suspended Access Cradle from EuroSafe Solutions Often referred to as a window cleaning cradle, a gondola or a gantry, Building Maintenance Units are a type of permanent mechanical access equipment generally installed on the building's roof level that is operated manually, automatically or by remote-control. The BMU can be installed in a static location or on fixed or free-standing tracks, allowing the unit to traverse the full perimeter of the roof. From the main unit a telescopic jib suspends a cradle or basket over the edge of the building that can be lowered or raised allowing access to all of the building's façade for general maintenance, cleaning and repairs such as glazing and façade panel replacement. The bespoke nature of Building Maintenance Units means early engagement with the architect or building owner. Providing an initial cost-effective design that not only meets statutory requirements but has taken into consideration all of the access needs of the building, throughout its lifetime, is paramount to a successful installation. Eurosafe offers a full wrap round service to ensure that your project gets the right piece of equipment. Partnering with market leading BMU manufacturer GPBMU in Madrid Spain, we guide you through the complete process from access strategy, concept design, engineering loads for the unit and your building, site project management and installation, commissioning, user training and long-term warrantied maintenance.
