Here is some good news for the people in the United Kingdom. The country will start implementing Window Cleaning drones starting next year. These drones pack a powerful punch, being able to spray water at high velocity. The best asset they offer however is their flight and maneuverability.
Window Washing Drone
Flight gives them a reach advantage over the traditional method of window cleaning. The drone in motion can reach places that can be hard to clean, especially in traditional methods involving ropes and scaffolding. These drones also ensure a safer work environment, giving people less time on the edge of a high story building. With these installed for building maintenance, you can be sure that time efficiency and safety are all improved.
The drone boasts a sundry of hardware and software to help in its tasks. It has 14 powerful rotors to help it elevate to high stories in buildings. It uses high-powered hoses to propel water into the target, while also ensuring dirt and debris are removed. The water supply comes from the bottom, with a hose tethering the drone and the supply.
Fire Fighting Capabilities
On a more serious use for this Window Washing Drone, it can also serve as a firefighter’s tool. This can become increasingly of importance for those with very high floor counts. Most of damaging fire incidents during the past decade alone involved flames engulfing high stories that proved difficult to reach by firefighters on the ground. Having firetrucks and ladders can only do so much when the fire in question is at the 60th floor. Having a drone pumping water on that high of an elevation can provide great help in containing the fire.
The idea of a cheaper (than a helicopter) alternative for firefighting is a very mind-blowing concept, if you think about it. It can reach hard-to-reach areas, not only for cleaning, but for eliminating fires as well.
