Every Part Built to Perform
Existing conventional professional window-cleaning systems are constructed around the belief that the design and materials used are fundamentally correct. Glidex made no such assumptions. And the more we looked the more we found to improve. Glidex products are the result of a rigorous research program and leading edge manufacturing technologies.
|Glidex® Ultra-stiff Alloy Channels|
Made from anodised high temper aircraft grade aluminium, Glidex channels are four times more rigid than traditional brass or stainless steel channels. The unique Glidex channel design ensures even pressure across the entire rubber blade eliminating ‘tip lay-off’. Glidex channels offer a superior release angle when squeegeeing into tight corners such as aluminium box frames.
For added convenience there is also an extra groove to alter the squeegee angle to suit various site conditions or user preference. All channels are supplied with a squeegee blade and easy to use stainless steel retaining clips.
|Adjustable Swivel Head|
The adjustable swivel head is standard on all Glidex squeegee handles and T-bar washers, giving them the versatility to work in any situation. All Glidex handles have the unique Safe-ConnectTM feature for use with Glidex poles.The Glidex swivel handle can be fixed through almost 180°. There is a convenient self–righting click to re establish the 90° configuration.
The Glidex Safe-ConnectTM pole latch attachment means effortless attachment and release of Glidex squeegees
and T-bar washers.
|There is a unique double action lever-lock feature for both safety and convenience. |
The first lever action allows easy offsetting of the channel without the danger of an accidental channel release. The second action allows a controlled release for a quick channel change.
For those who prefer a longer grip there is the new GH2 safety swivel handle which incorporates a convenient lanyard fixing point. Ideal for hi-rise work!
|Glidex® Squeegee Blades|
Glidex blades are made from a compound like no other. Six years of dedicated research went into the development of a blade compound, based on highest quality natural rubber, that could be manufactured to give the truest edge and most durable performance where it matters. Where blade, water and glass meet. The unique, reversible twin life rubber profile ensures the second edge is completely protected until the blade is reversed. This means longer life and better performance from each blade. The Glidex ‘micro eye’ process ensures that every blade is manufactured totally free of imperfections.
