Amazing huh, They can send a man to the moon and build the worlds tallest
building but none of those rocket scientists can come up with an automatic
These people deserved to be paid just as much as celebrities.
Some think a parachute is the most important kit to wear but actually it’s
fuck that, should put car window wipers on the windows instead
You’d have thouht they would have put in an automatied window cleaning
100 thousand billion dollars wouldn’t get me up there!!
I am just trying to determine how much that job would have to pay for me to
even consider trying it.
Even though I know that the rope is 99.98% safe I still wouldnt be able to
hang from the side like that or even repel. My brain wouldn’t be able to
comprehend such a thing. If someone forced me at gunpoint to do it I might
do it but even then is be wailing like a babe all the way down. This as a
job would be ridiculous. This is coming from a guy who’s in the 82nd
Airborne division and has jumped hundreds of times. Also Air Assault
qualified but wouldnt do this.
Once you get past 100ft i imagine a few thousand more is no big deal. It
all kills you the same, with the burj you just get a scenic trip down.
Lets hope they get paid good money
The world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, has the world’s
highest windows. The BBC joins the team whose heart-stopping job it is to
clean them. It’s not coincidental that at the beginning of this video you
can hear the soundtrack from Hitchcock’s Vertigo.
No thanks I’II stick to my day job.
Our industry is coming on leaps and bounds with new developments happening
all the time. The design and thought process of the burj khalifa is truly
an engineering master class
#ICYMI Check out this incredible BBC clip about high rise #windowcleaning
on the Burj Khalifa
With all our advanced technology now, they still haven’t figured out they
can put oversized car windshield wipers on these damn things?
The biggest thing that sucks with the wind this high up is what you
squeegee off often blows up on what you just cleaned. Another is the
heat/sun, you do not want warm water and you have to squeegee quick before
it evaporates. Tallest I did was 30 stories, it is all the same once you
get over 20 stories., I would do it again, just not there.
ha nicely place vertigo music
In my experience it doesn’t take too long before it is just a boring job
and the height really is no big deal at all. Really the worst part of
window cleaning is the long term effect on your health from repetitive
stress of holding a squeegee and torquing your finger and wrist joints. I
have some serious osteoarthritis in my fingers from 28 years of window
that would get your heart rate up, doing that job.
Why clean an empty building?
these guys don’t get paid well enough for the job they are doing. they
probably get paid between 20-25 an hour if that. Probably less if they are
not legal residents.
i want this job !!!!!!
not for all the tea in china….
Wonder how much damage pee would do off the side of that building
I wonder what the winds are like at that height. The highest building I
cleaned was only 22 floors and quite often the water wouldn’t trip down it
would blow back up over the pane of class you had just cleaned.
