How the KITE Window Cleaning Robot works

Autonomous

  1. Two operators arrive in a van
  2. They connect the KITE Robot to your building
  3. The KITE Robot autonomously cleans your entire facade
  4. The operators disconnect the KITE Robot and put it back in the van

Mobile

  • The different robot parts (cleaning unit, winch unit, cables) can be carried
  • They are all stored in the van

Invisible

  • There will be no permanently visible components on your building (except during cleaning time)
  • Only a few connection points will stay on the roof and possibly also on the ground

Rotating brush

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.

Dazzling architecture

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.
