XSPlatforms Gondolas

We supply gondolas for every roof car, in different sizes and colours, as standard or pantograph systems. We provide self-hoisting gondolas for manual and gantry solutions.

Standard Gondola


Standard Gondola

The standard gondolas are 2.4 m wide, though we can provide smaller or wider gondolas. Gondolas from 1 m to 3.6 m wide can be used on standard machines; even wider gondolas are possible with special customized machines. The gondolas are made entirely of aluminum and can be finished in any desired RAL colour.

Self Hoisting Gondola

The self-hoisting gondola is normally used in combination with a monorail or a gantry. Comprises a gondola and one or two traction hoists.

Innovation in roof car & gondola control

XSPlatforms uses HMI - PLCs for machines that require more accurate control and diagnostic possibilities. The PLC can provide at any moment an accurate view of the movement that the roof car and gondola make. Next to a control unit that is far more accurate, diagnostic possibilities and the control systems for faults are up to the job in hand. In addition to this far more accurate control, the PLC has diagnostic possibilities and can check systems for faults.


Radiographic control of the roof car

The advantages of radiographic control in roof cars are obvious. Normally we use a control cable for the connection between the roof car; however, at height above 60 m we have to use special conductor cables. These cables are more expensive and their installation is labour intensive. The ability to install a roof car radiographic control in our gondolas provides cost benefits at the moment of purchase and for years to come in service and maintenance.


Radiographic control of the roof car

When XSPlatforms innovates, they ensure that ergonomics and easy usage go hand in hand. The newly designed gondola from XSPlatforms is different from any other gondola on the market today, in that ergonomics and weather conditions are fully taken into account. The gondola is a major step forwards for the user of our installations. It provides a spacious working place at height and is easy to operate. At height, weather conditions can be serious adverse (hot midday sun, lashing rain, howling winds). XSPlatforms new gondola better protects the user against such conditions, making it possible to use the installation on days when it would otherwise be impossible to do so.
