Candor Techspace Launches Smart Spider For High-Rise Façade Cleaning
In a recent development in the facility management domain, Candor TechSpace, the leading provider of IT/ITES office spaces, has launched its first-of-a-kind, in-house innovation – Smart Spider. Patented and pioneered by Mr. Baljit Singh, Vice President, Operations Brookfield Properties, the latest innovation by the WorkSpace Provider with an operational area of 13.87 million sq. ft- is the first compact, light-weight, and remote-controlled robotic façade cleaning machine, which is manufactured in India and will be a part of Candor’s existing suite of assets.
Aligned with the government’s Make in India initiative, the revolutionary Smart Spider is a breakthrough in the facility management industry, which will add efficiency to the overall cleaning process and eliminate human risks in all respects. The entire cleaning process is controlled and managed by a wireless radio signal-based remote station that oversees the movement and operation of the Smart Spider. The station also monitors and supervises the machine by leveraging a high-resolution PTZ camera.
The remote-controlled machine comes equipped with the most advanced technology-driven features, comprising relevant cleaning equipment such as bristle roller, nozzle sprayer, water pumps, and forward & reverse mechanism, among others. Smart Spider is also capable of retrofitting to existing cradle platforms in addition to offering a wide range of benefits from all-weather availability to privacy for the occupants. By leveraging this state-of-the-art innovation, Candor TechSpace reaffirms its commitment to delivering smart, sustainable, productive, resilient and future-ready workplaces.
