Rubbermaid launches first mechanical sweepers27th of June 2013
Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP) has launched its first ever range of mechanical sweepers, introducing three commercial-grade models suitable for use on hard floors, carpets and rugs.
The company says the new sweepers are an alternative to vacuuming in certain areas. They can pick up fluff, dust, grit, sand, spills, paper, threads and crumbs. All three are said to be easy to use and lightweight - supplied with a long 101.6cm coated steel handle for cleaning into corners or under furniture.
The most versatile sweeper and especially suited to food service applications is the FG421588BLA which has a wide 19cm sweep path, two debris canisters with one-touch emptying doors, non-marking rubber blades.
The Dual Action Sweeper FG421388BLA is best suited to use on hard floors or low pile carpets and also has a wide sweep path. The smaller size of the ultra-handy FG421288BLA model with its 16.5cm sweep path allows the user to clean into even tighter spots.
