Providing Efficient Façade Maintenance Systems
Appletree Building Maintenance
Founded in the year 2005, Appletree Building Maintenance is led by Sunil Malhotra as the Managing Director of the company. So far, Appletree has completed more than 150 projects successfully by working hand in hand with the concerned teams at the site. The company focusses on safety aspects and ensures that all its products comply with international standards.
For one of the big projects, the company imported a fully automatic system called a Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) that can be controlled by a remote to reach any part of the façade. In the process, the company was able to create a similar type of machine. This is the first time that a BMU is made indigenously and successfully handed over to the client.
The Core Business Activities of Appletree:
Consultancy, designing, manufacturing, supply and installation of permanent façade access system for high-rise buildings.

Advantages of Access System/ Solution:
Since the access is automated, it replaces the long hours of labour and hence more efficient, effective and cost saving in the long term.
Access system is less expensive as compared to conventional cleaning.
It is safer as it contains numerous safety features.
More areas can be cleaned in short time.
Façade Access Solutions are Divided into Different Categories:
Manual Access System: These are spiderman on eye hooks/ jibs to access the hard to reach areas where there is almost no feasibility of any other system to access.
Partially Automated Access System: It is used to carry the persons in the cradle which moves up and down automatically
Fully Automated Access System: It is called BMU/Roof Carriage system which is mounted either on RCC roof top/parapet.
Ground to Top Access System: The system is used where there is no access to roof and very useful for cleaning and maintaining atriums, receptions, etc.
Gantry System: Help to access the skylights from inside the building and the area below the connecting bridge of the building if any.
