Axis Condominiums

Location: San Jose, CA
Completion Date: 2008
Basic Equipment List: Monorail Track System, Sockets, Davits

The Axis Condominium Tower, located in San Jose , California is a 21 story high-rise completed in 2008. Construction of the tower required the use of long outreach heavy duty davits on permanent sockets. Due to the extended roof line, short monorail track sections had to be embedded into the concrete roof structure to accommodate the transfer of the powered platform from the davits to the monorail below. Once the platform is secured to the monorail trolley, it can then be positioned to access the glass below the soffit.
