Why APPI: Shown perched atop one of the more striking buildings in the Atlanta skyline, these Columbia HC2000s were recently provided to raise and lower a set of davit arms which serve as the anchor points for a window washing platform. The Columbia HC2000s were ideal for this project based on their compact yet robust construction. In addition, their washdown-duty motors, epoxy paint overcoat, stainless steel fasteners, and NEMA 6 pendants will ensure that these hoists perform optimally for years to come.
The challenge of lowering window washing and maintenance equipment over the arc’d veils of this building was no small feat to overcome, and we are pleased with our role in the project. More importantly, the building constructor and owner are pleased with our performance in handling their needs as well.
