The requirements of buildings for the HighStep System
Requirements on the climbing system
Operators of commercial and industrial buildings represent a central client segment at HighStep Systems AG. The HighStep System will meet today's as well as tomorrow's requirements put on a climbing system by operators of buildings.
Requirements from an operator of commerical or industrial buildings perspective
Buildings nowadays master a large variety of tasks. This results in extremely versatile requirements with regards to the shape and functionality of the building. Traditional climbing systems can rapidly reach their limits if the shape of a building for example only allows to climb overhanging. A conventional ladder would not be of use here.
Whilst traditional elevators are primarily the norm within the building, it is possible that the shape and functionality of the building ask for innovative climbing solution for quick and safe access to the exterior wall of a building or other higher building parts (eg. towers, chimneys, roofs etc.).
Finally, aspects of design and aesthetics can also be central. What would a bulky ladder look like on such a frontage, or possibly even a ladder with back guard hoops?
