Crossover Approach to Cleaning

21 May 2015 | Updated 01 January 1970

Denis Rawlins has introduced a battery powered OmniFlex AutoVac which the company describes as a Crossover cleaning machine designed to do the job of advanced scrubber-driers at a fraction of the cost.

The OmniFlex range is a modular cleaning system that allows building managers and cleaners on tight budgets to ‘crossover’ from mopping to hygienic, automated cleaning in what is claimed to be easy and highly cost effective steps.

Leading the OmniFlex range, the AutoVac combines the capabilities to, dispense, spread, clean, vacuum and remove soils in a single powerful unit. The Battery AutoVac version reportedly boosts productivity further to 20,000sqft  – or more than 2,000sqm per hour – outperforming all but the largest ride-on scrubber-driers.

The Battery AutoVac also competes with the more complex machines’ cleaning performance with independent scientific tests in the USA stating that the AutoVac and a scrubber-drier each removed more than 99% of bacteria from a contaminated floor compared with 24% for a microfibre mop.

Picture:   The OmniFlex range is a modular cleaning system for those on tight budgets to ‘crossover’ from mopping to hygienic, automated cleaning.
