SpaceVac wins 'pole' position
SpaceVac Technologies, the global high level and gutter pole cleaning equipment specialist, has reached 'pole' position - voted best brand in independent comparison tests.
SpaceVac beat its two competitors Omnipole and Skyvac in practical tests on an Essex office block by a national window and gutter cleaning company.
One complete basic set of vacuum operated gutter cleaning equipment was bought from each of the three UK manufacturers - Omnipole, SpaceVac and Skyvac.
Independent nationwide window and gutter cleaning expert, Ian Robson, director of Progress Cleaning Services, put all three brands through their paces and reported on his findings.
SpaceVac Technologies was voted equal or best product in every aspect from ease of use and assembly to effectiveness and efficiency of doing the job.
It was the only manufacturer to provide an inspection camera as standard equipment. This is vital in guiding the cleaning tool when unblocking a gutter from ground level - or when wanting to make a DVD or stills photograph to show the job has been completed effectively.
SpaceVac was the fastest to assemble, by far the lightest to use and the only brand that could be used by one operator on gutters four storeys high. Other products were too heavy to be used by one operator on buildings above one floor. One was so heavy that lifting its 60ft pole required three men.
When it came to pure dirt suction power SpaceVac was equal No 1 as both used the same vacuum unit.
SpaceVac's transporter trolley was voted the best and the company was the only one of the three brands that offers free demonstrations and free training anywhere in the UK.
Ian Robson said of SpaceVac: "This is real quality and will last. It is light - very, very light with nice carbon fibre poles which are by far the easiest to assemble. Unlike other brands the poles don't jam together with moisture or dust. If I could buy anything, I would buy this one."
SpaceVac Managing Director Colin Lewis says: "This product testing confirms our beliefs. After months of trials and market testing we launched nationally this year and sales are flooding in. Our website hits have quadrupled and we are now selling several units a week. We have added a further five staff to our team and need more to cover our gutter cleaning service which we provide to building owners that want the job done for them."
