Roller brushes
These are roller shafts with brush strip wound around the shaft to create a brush roller, they are used in many areas of production, from cleaning to sweeping. They can be found in glass cleaning machines for double glazing, carpet cleaners, tile cleaning, food processing.

Coiled brushes
These are made in the same way as brush rollers, but then taken off the shaft, they can then be fitted to existing customer shaft, used in the construction of augers for water treatment industries and food processing.

Trommel brushes / screen cleaning brushes
These are shafts complete with bearings with heavy duty brush strip coiled around them, they are used to clean trommel screens in the quarry industry, these would be found in the quarry and waste recycling industries

Strip brush / brush strip
Strip brushes (brush strips) are made by forming metal strip around a wire which retains filaments, mainly Nylon and Polypropylene, used in many areas of industry, draught proofing, cleaning, anti vibration, used on shutter doors, waste skips and food processing.

Cup brushes
Brush strip is formed into a circle with the filaments facing upwards, giving the effect of a ‘cup’. Used in many areas of industry, cleaning mainly as well as seals around shafts etc., waste industry skips and food processing.

Door bottom brushes / draft excluders
Brush strip is made by forming metal strip around a wire which retains filaments, mainly Nylon and Polypropylene, used in many areas of industry, draught proofing, cleaning, door anti vibration, used on shutter doors, all most types of door.

Punched in brushes
A backing material such as wood or plastic is chosen and filament is punched into the backing material using a machine, the filaments are held in place with a staple. Cleaning brushes, sweeping brushes and tooth brushes are typical examples.

Punched knot brushes / knotted brushes
A backing material such as wood or plastic is chosen and filament is punched into the backing material using a machine, the filaments are held in place with a staple, creating a knot of brush, it takes numerous knots to create a brush head. Cleaning brushes, sweeping brushes and tooth brushes are typical examples.

Hand drawn brushes / hand filled brushes
A backing material such as wood or plastic is chosen, holes are drilled in the base unit with a small hole to allow a retaining wire through. The filament is ‘stitched’ in place by hand using the retaining wire, unlike punched in, there is no staple to come loose, it takes numerous holes (knots) to create a brush head. Used in cleaning brushes, sweeping brushes and in areas such as water treatment and food processing where loss of filament is not permitted

Helical brushes
These are made in the same way as brush rollers, they can be left on or taken off the shaft, so they can then be fitted to existing customer shaft if required, used in the construction of augers for water treatment industries and food processing.

Glass cleaning roller brushes
These are roller shafts with brush strip wound around the shaft to create a brush roller, they are used in many areas of production, from cleaning glass to metal plates. found in glass cleaning machines for double glazing and tile cleaning

Metal cleaning brushes
These are roller shafts with brush strip wound around the shaft to create a brush roller, instead of nylon filament they can be filled with metal filaments or metal impregnated nylon. They are used in many areas of production, from cleaning glass to metal plates. Found in glass cleaning machines for double glazing and tile cleaning
