Backpack demos from ProTeam at ISSA/INTERCLEAN29th of June 2012
ProTeam made its second visit to the show with its backpack vacuums. The US-based company aims to convert tub and upright vacuum users in Europe to using backpacks by promoting their productivity gains.
"Backpack vacuums are traditionally a niche market for applications such as stairwells and cinemas," said international business development manager Mike Harrington. "But we are pioneering it as a mainstream cleaning system.
"When adopting a `scythe` motion an operator using the system can clean at a rate of around 95 sq m per hour, as opposed to 40 sq m per hour using an upright model."
He claims ProTeam's vacuums also offer sustainability benefits. "They are good for the environment since they use four levels of filtration."
