Window Wash Delay

WINDOW WASH DELAY
There has been a significant delay in the window washing of the building. Each year the stage must be certified by a state licensed and CAL- OSHA approved vendor.
The process for certification has changed recently and is now quite extensive. The motor and braking system must be completely removed and taken to the shop of the vendor. There they take everything apart for evaluation and rebuild it as needed.
A complete electrical check is required along with an inspection of all cables, controls, leveling sensors, etc. The platform and the aluminum screen around the platform are thoroughly inspected as well.
This year the brakes were completely rebuilt, the 1000’ of steel cable was replaced and several areas of aluminum screen must be replaced.
The delay at this time is the aluminum screen has not arrived. We have been informed that it is held up in customs. This is a proprietary, patented high strength lightweight aluminum screen that is manufactured specifically for our type of Swingstage (washing equipment).
We apologize for this delay and will keep everyone informed when the cleaning of the windows and building is scheduled.
