Water fed poles replace the use of ladders and access equipment to give the operator a reach capability that is both safer and quicker when cleaning at height.

Brodex have been designing, experiment with and manufacturing water fed poles for over 11 years. We have arrived at a range of tools that are proven and effective for all kinds of cleaning operations.

As you move to any single characteristic you are moving away from the other i.e. the lighter the pole it firstly becomes weaker and prone to breakage, then the rigidity suffers and it becomes too flexible. You will see below that the pole characteristics will be different for every pole depending on several things from material of construction to number of sections, to size of tubes. We have provided a guide below to help you choose the best pole for your needs.

There are two types of pole available

Telescopic Poles

This pole consists of numerous tubes that are of different sizes so they fit closely inside each other. A compression clamp is attached to each section and used to hold the pole extended.

Telescopic Pole - Hydra Window Cleaning Pole - Hydra Telescopic Pole - Clamp on pole  

We use 2 types of material to produce these, Carbon Fibre Composite and aircraft grade aluminium. These are two very different materials producing very different poles.

Modular Poles

As the name suggests these poles are built from multiple separate sections that connect together to produce the desired lengths. You can use one section (6ft) for low work or join 10 sections to produce a 60ft pole. Because of this the material used is a carbon composite. This type of pole allows each section to maintain a large diameter therefore increasing stiffness. This is a premium product and needs to be handled differently than a more robust telescopic model. It does have a noticeable advantage of packing down to 6ft length.

Selecting Poles

Carbon Composites

This is the most expensive type of pole but it performs the best overall. Whilst it is susceptible to breakage due to the brittle nature of carbon fibre it is the lightest option and most importantly the stiffest. This is the material of choice for the largest poles used i.e. normally 45ft – 60ft. The smaller poles are fantastic in carbon but generally cost prohibitive compared to the massively cheaper fibreglass or alloy poles.

Aluminium Poles

This is the cheaper option but by no means should you dismiss because of this. The alloy is heavier and more flexible than the carbon and so is not usually used for the larger poles over 36ft. But it is very strong and the most durable by far amongst any other material. Ideal for the rough handled operative but not suitable for the very large reach poles. Probably the best value for money poles available.

Have a look at the table below in conjunction with the above guide. It will tell you what the codes are for the relevant facts. You can then check the prices in our pricelist or on-line shop.
