What do you need to know about safety?
Window cleaning robots are safe to run, when they’re used properly. They connect to mains power, so should always be used in a dry environment, never in wet conditions.
It’s hard to hurt yourself using a robot window cleaner, because the devices operate at low power and speeds. Unless one falls on you. But there’s a safety rope to help prevent that. With the Glider II this safety rope consists of an elastic rope attached to a suction cup that you an place on the glass, so there will always be a place to fix the safety apparatus.
The AC Adapter is all important. It must comply with Australian standards, carry the RCM mark, and include the standard Australian wall plug. robotzoo is very careful about these points. Heavy fines and jail sentences apply to anyone selling electrical equipment in Australia that is non-compliant with Australian electrical safety standards. And so they should.
Many suppliers, particularly on Ebay, Amazon or Alibaba will ignore these points, either wilfully or out of ignorance. Especially those overseas suppliers selling online who are out of reach of Australian law. There is no protection for Australian consumers who try to save a few dollars buying from these overseas suppliers. So buyers beware!
If the robot window cleaner is being used on external windows high up, there is a remote possibility that it could fall and hit someone below. That’s why all robotzoo window cleaners have a safety rope with an attachment apparatus (metal carabiner clip or suction cup) to attach them to something fixed. If the device falls off, the safety rope should prevent any damage being done.
