Luffing | Slewing | Traversing | Spreader Bar | Telescopic Extension | Hoisting

Movements : Luffing

The luffing device lets us go over a parapet, a lits core, or any kind of wall. Jib luffing lets us change the outreach at any time while we descend.

Also it’s a useful device for parking areas as it lets the jib rise to a horizontal position when parked.


We can make the trolley slew, in order to reach areas on a different angle, like working in 45º to 360º turn

Rotating speed : 11 m / min at the cradle

Possible anticollision device for the jib

Calculated against storm winds


The trolley is able to traverse along a track layout all through the perimeter of the building or the designated area. This function is one of the basics in order to properly reach just in front of the façade.

Traversing speed : 10 m / min

Anticolision detectors

Presence of track detector

Spreader bar

It is one of the most used devices. It lets the cradle be orientated completely flat to the façade.

It lets the cradle orientate 180º

Normally used in corners or angled façades

It can be folded forward while on parking on request

Telescopic extension

It is one of the most complicated movements in a cleaning machine.

The horizontal telescopic allows the operator to adjust the distance he is from the track.

Also used for small parking positions.

We can add as much telescopic parts as needed.


It is the main movement on a machine. It lets the operator go up & down freely through the whole height of the façade.
