Wind Speed Measurement

Wind speed measurement

Application: High Rise and Skyscraper Window Cleaning

Customer Challenge

High wind speeds are a major safety risk to high rise windows and building cleaners who are elevated to an average building height of 136m in London alone. Similarly, the machinery and equipment used to assist them in reaching these great heights are put under an enormous amount of strain increasing the need for maintenance.

Strict safety procedures and safety equipment are essential to reduce the risk of potentially fatal outcomes.

Hanwell Solution

Brand: Hanwell Pro

Description: Bespoke Wind speed monitoring and alarm kit

How does the system assist with this challenge?

A wind speed sensor with a 0-10 volt output is attached to a Hanwell Pro transmitter. When the wind speed exceeds a predetermined level a signal is sent to the receiver mounted in the workers platform alerting them that it is now unsafe to continue. The system is quick and easy to install and transmits to a locally used laptop for immediate access to cloud-based software.

At Hanwell Solutions we pride ourselves on our ability to accurately interpret our customers needs and produce a cost-effective solution that can not only eliminate or assist them now, but that can grow and change in the future.

Wind Speed Measurement Results

Working alongside a reputable company, we firstly took time to understand the requirements set out by our client and the specific problems they faced and designed and presented a wind speed measurement system that fitted their initial and strict brief.

“We are happy with the level of knowledge and thought that went into our specific problem and now have a system and process in place that we plan to roll out across a few similar applications which we hope to expand to include wind direction in the near future.” – Pete
