  4. Slide (squeegee, squidge) for driving water from glass.
  5. Telescopic pole that fits both the holder with the fur coat and the squeegee. Useful for high-glazed work.
  6. Microfiber napkin with a density of 300-360 g / m2. for cleaning frames and interframe spaces.

For what purposes are rotary and non-rotary slides needed?

Slide or, as it is also called, the squeegee consists of a chute with rubber and a handle. A slide with a non-rotating handle works only in one plane. With a complex glazing design, for example, a blind loggia or arched windows, it will be more convenient to use a rotary slide. It can also be locked in a straight position with an adjusting screw, and also gives you the ability to set the angle of inclination that you need.

Slide 30 degrees and straight (zero), what’s the difference?

The slide with a 30-degree handle can be used both for manual window cleaning and for working at height using a telescopic pole. Straight (zero) handles are only used in conjunction with a telescopic pole. It is convenient to wash large showcases with such squeegees. Another distinctive feature is that the zero handle does not have a button for attaching the chute, like the handle at 30 degrees. Therefore, to secure the channel to the handle, you need a screwdriver and pliers.

What is the difference between soft and hard rubber?

Hard rubber is used in most cases at high ambient temperatures from 30 ° C. Under these conditions, it has good contact with the glass, while the soft rubber will adhere slightly to the glass. In other cases, soft rubber wins, as it works well on both smooth and rough surfaces, while hard rubber will leave some streaks and not completely driven water. That is why soft rubber is most often acquired in our climate. It is versatile and suitable for all workloads. The rubber changes as it starts to leave streaks. With daily use, the rubber usually lasts for 1-2 months.
