Rigging Sleeve


rigging sleeve system

Rigging sleeves have solved many window cleaning access problems by providing pathways through roofs, floors, and walls or other vertical elements for suspension lines where access would otherwise be difficult, unsafe, or impossible.

Rigging sleeves are primarily a redirection system that allows maintenance platform suspension lines and/or lifelines to be re-routed or fished through pipe sleeves. They can be any length or shape as well as adapted to suit virtually any building condition. Pro-Bel provides custom rigging sleeve solutions for each building project.

When is this form of façade access/window washing equipment implemented?

They're set up when all other means of conventional window washing equipment cannot comply with a building's permanent architectural characteristics.

For safe, convenient access to primary suspension lines or lifelines through the roof, floor, wall, or other building elements. otherwise, accessing sloped roofs, overhangs, skylights, or otherwise inaccessible areas. Also recommended when all other conventional means of performing window cleaning/suspended maintenance cannot be used. Suitable for use with a platform, single work cage, or bosun's chair with ascending capability.

Types of rigging sleeves:

Wall Sleeve:

A sleeve built into the wall. When not in service, rigging sleeves retract to the interior of the building.

Flush-mounted rigging sleeves:

These are integrated into the balcony and are designed with a cap concealing the rigging sleeve hole.

Curved Rigging Sleeve:

These types of sleeves are used when you have to run the worker's suspension and lifelines both horizontally through a wall and vertically through a soffit (such as a mansard roof condition).

Vertical Rigging Sleeve:

When rigging over or around a façade is not possible, vertical rigging sleeves are used to pass through the overhang or protruding building element (i.e. balconies or eyebrows) and are often a more economical solution to monorails.

Types of vertical sleeves Pro-Bel offers:

Horizontal rigging sleeve:

Used when needing to pass through building elements through a wall horizontally to suspend the lines vertically for a ground-rigged suspended platform.
