As part of Alimak Group’s companies, Alimak Service are uniquely positioned to provide tailored service and support solutions for the continuing optimal functionality of a wide range of essential vertical access products from leading global brand names including building maintenance units from Manntech and CoxGomyl.
The close relationship with these leading providers of the highest quality building maintenance units means that the Alimak Service team can deliver unrivalled product specific knowledge and expertise across a wide range of service solutions. This includes inspections, maintenance, servicing, easy access to genuine spare parts from the original equipment manufacturers and, not least, a range of training services delivered by knowledgeable and experienced industry experts. Our extensive offering now includes the new addition of BMU Duty Holder Training and BMU Basic Operator Training courses. These courses have been successfully deployed in a classroom setting and the positive feedback we received led us to develop the world’s first dedicated BMU eLearning training courses.
Alimak Service’s BMU operator training is now offered as an online course for maximum accessibility and convenience. This is a state of the art service developed using the latest technology to provide online learning in a 3D environment. The online training framework has been developed from the ground up in order to meet the specific industry needs associated with BMU operators. Interactive 3D graphics are combined with a virtual ‘white board’ screen which effectively communicates the theoretical aspects of the course. The training can be undertaken using a PC, tablet or mobile device providing access anytime and anywhere. This flexibility allows for training to be completed based on your own schedule while also saving the time and expense involved with travel and accommodation. In fact, the online version of BMU operator training has proved four times faster to complete than the classroom version.
Well-established, world leading providers of facade access solutions always put safety at the core of every product they design and manufacture. Safety standards can of course be compromised, however, when individual operators are not sufficiently well trained in the use of this highly-engineered equipment. All of which can put the safety of the operators themselves, building tenants and the general public at risk. All of the specific expertise of Alimak Service has been built into our recently launched eLearning course for BMU operators. In order to ensure the highest possible standards of safety and reduce the risks of harm as far as possible, we highly recommend that BMU operators complete this course either online or in the classroom in combination with a hands on familiarisation course. The development of all our training resources is driven by our commitment to make the building maintenance units we work with the safest building access solutions available on the market.
These pioneering BMU Operator Training courses are easy and convenient for the designated booking manager to register for through our Training Management System. Certificates are stored online and issued immediately upon course completion.

Certified and thorough training is paramount in ensuring the safety of vertical access systems. Although there are always new advances in safety equipment and technologically is constantly advancing towards minimising risks, the ultimate responsibility for maintaining a safe environment and ensuring safe operation of vertical access solutions comes down to a combination of well manufactured equipment, and building owners investing in the right operator training and an ongoing maintenance plan for their equipment.

Our training syllabus encompasses courses in four key areas: personal safety training, operator training, technical training and installation training.

To these ends, we work closely with several leading safety and industry organisations in order to be well-informed of the regulatory and legislative landscape and ensure the training we deliver meets or exceeds the requirements.

Vertical access systems from the most well regarded, high-quality manufacturers are always designed and engineered as a long term investment in the care of your building. That being said, the march of time affects us all, even machines, and any system will begin to show signs of age after many years of service. Regular maintenance is therefore vital and at times, refurbishment solutions are necessary and can also offer a range of benefits.
As an alternative to getting by with an aging vertical access system which is no longer considered fit for purpose, a refurbishment of your system can provide many of the enhancements and advances that have improved performance and transformed the industry over the years. Due to age, increased downtime, lack of functionality or specific damage, it sometimes becomes necessary to upgrade existing access equipment with the benefit of the most recent technological advances. Older systems can also become a financial burden as it costs more to keep them running each year. Without incurring the considerable expense involved in installing an entirely new system, refurbishment by industry experts such as Alimak Service can extend the operational life of the existing equipment and therefore maximise the value of your initial investment in vertical access systems.
Alimak Service’s refurbishment solutions always includes a full inspection and evaluation report of the equipment, a detailed proposal which allows you to make an informed decision on the cost effectiveness of the refurbishment. Work is then undertaken by highly skilled technicians, fully warranted and up to the latest industry standards. The use of genuine spare parts ensures the quality and longevity of the refurbished vertical access solution.
Depending on the details of the project, a refurbishment solution might be relatively limited in scope and come under the banner of Product Upgrades. This kind of refurbishment project is focussed on a limited number of specific key components. In instances where bespoke or aging components have become obsolete and outdated, or can no longer be viably repaired, carrying out upgrades to introduce modern components can improve the performance or functionality of the system as a whole. Again, this can be a way to extend the operational life of the existing vertical access system. A well-connected industry expert Alimak are able to provide upgrade-based solutions for components of electrical, control, mechanical and hydraulic systems.
Alternatively, a more comprehensive refurbishment solution may be required for systems where the issues run deeper than a limited number of particular components. A complete refurbishment can extend the operational life of your equipment with a broader complete or partial overhaul of the structural, mechanical, hydraulic and safety systems. Again, Alimak Service are ideally placed to deliver this kind of refurbishment solution, providing service centres with dedicated technicians and resources for managing the complete refurbishment process from initial evaluation through to the final installation and re-certification. High complexity and major refurbishments also utilise the state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in one of 12 Alimak product factories.
Refurbishment is often an attractive and cost-effective option for many vertical access systems which, for a variety of reasons, could be performing better. For that reason, Alimak Service can provide on-going assessment of your equipment as part of a comprehensive service package. This helps to budget for future work and to plan ahead for when refurbishment may become the right move for you.
