Inside the facility, the MiTower allows you to examine ceiling pipes, electrical wiring, fire prevention equipment, and security cameras to ensure everything is up to code and compliant. 
    • Proactive Maintenance: Catch minor problems before they become major, costly repairs. Building inspections often involve accessing tricky areas, making the MiTower Mobile Access Tower a facility manager’s best friend.
