The IB Tower, located on Jalan Binjai, is one of the tallest buildings in Kuala Lumpur and the third largest in Malaysia. At 58 storeys high, the building comprised grade-A office suites and several units of luxury serviced apartments.
Due to its unique building shape and high-tech façade design, a special solution was required for its facade cleaning. A Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) or gondola was the most suitable choice, for which MHE-Demag Malaysia secured the order to supply a Manntech Type 6.4 BMU with a working height of 300m.
The BMU was custom-made with a 4-stage telescopic mast reaching a distance of 36m, making it the longest telescopic mast ever installed in Malaysia and Southeast Asia. The telescopic cradles further enabled the operator to access 5m recesses within the façade.
