Ground Based Access

Ground Based Access Solution

LEO 40 GTX The LEO Series is the original tracked aerial work platform. It is the most compact and light access solution for quickly reaching confined job sites and to work in heights up to 50 meters.

Key Advantages of the LEO

1. Compact and light: On jobsites with limited access, the lifts of the LEO Series pass through standard doors and narrow entrances and reach working heights up to 50 meters. The LEO 40 GTX, shown above can reach up to 39.5 meters (129 feet).

2. Low weight under tracks: With an excellent weight distribution under the rubber tracks, the LEO Series allows access to areas with floor load restrictions or sensitive surfaces

3. Highly maneuverable: Indoors or outdoors, the track system allows you to easily and precisely position the lift through narrow alleys and around obstacles.

4. Precise articulation: The LEO 40 GTX with its articulation capability is able, not only to reach great heights, but to articulate over balcony levels that could not otherwise be reached.

Project Spotlight | Devon Energy Building

Devon BMUDevon BMU with Temporary PlatformDevon Building

In 2013, Sky Rider completed the installation of window washing equipment at the Devon Energy Corporation Headquarters. Located in downtown Oklahoma City, the building is an iconic, 50-story, 1.8-million-square-foot office tower, comprising nearly 1.8 million square feet of office and amenity space. Devon Energy Corporation, the largest U.S.-based independent oil and natural gas producer.

The window washing at the complex required a full range of equipment from ground based to roof top mounted davits and sockets to specialized interior monorail systems. Most significant however, is the Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) permanently located in the center of the tower rooftop. Weighing in at 97,000 lbs. with a maximum outreach of 92 feet, the BMU allows service of the entire tower’s facade. The BMU features automated work position indication, digital control through conductors in the wire ropes and an auxiliary hoist. The auxiliary hoist operates from platform controls to assist in glass replacement.
