How the KITE Window Cleaning Robot works
The KITE Robot consists of a single cleaning element – a rotating brush – which operates autonomously. This is controlled by four cables attached to almost invisible connection points on and, if necessary, at the bottom of the building. A connection point at the top of the building delivers demineralized water to the brush. (Demineralized water is specially filtered tap water whose cleaning properties have been proven beyond doubt.)
Ingenious cable system
Thanks to the smart technology behind the cable system, the cleaning unit can precisely follow the contours of any surface. Optimal operation of the four cables allows the KITE Robot to move in any direction. The path that the KITE Robot follows is carefully calculated and programmed in advance, enabling it to clean any surface at any height without human intervention.
Easy to transport and set up
The KITE Robot technology makes it easy to transport as all of its parts fit into one van. Setting up the pulleys for the cables is a simple job for two people. Once the pulleys are set up, the cleaning unit is placed in the starting position and the system gets to work at the touch of a button.
Should any unforeseen circumstances arise, the installers can override the pre-programmed controls.
Once the job is complete the cleaning unit goes back to the starting position, where the installers can dismantle the system.
Apart from the connection points for the cables, the whole system can be removed. The beauty of the architecture is not spoiled by permanent maintenance structures.
