Burj Khalifa world's record BMU's by CoxGomyl , aka Burj Dubai









Burj Khalifa BMU's by CoxGomyl

To service the facades of the 828 m high structure, 3 permanent parapet mounted BMUs were installed at each of Levels 40, 73 and 109. These track-mounted and telescoping systems are operate on a horizontal track which has been installed on Burj's exterior fa├žade. The machines are very flexible in their operation and are able to luff, telescopic, hoist, slew and travel. The average outreach of these machines is 10 m, retracting to 5 m for the parking configuration.

3 further fixed position machines are located at Tiers 19, 20 and 21 with outreaches of 21.5 m from the centre of rotation.

The Tower Spire above Tier 21 (624.1 m) is maintained by 6 separate systems, including 3 smaller Hawk Units and 3 davits for the uppermost areas.

A total of 18 machines have been delivered to the building and the higest operating BMU in the world working at 715 meters.
