One of our loyal customers, BT asked us to provide a demonstration of new machines that would be suitable for equipment room cleaning at their site in Manchester. Their main requirement was the cleaning of the raised floors inside the exchange which are typically tiled with Vinyl tiles and have cables running underneath.
A3 Machines strive to recommend the best machines for your business needs, therefore saving you time and costs of hiring machines to try. We find that on-site demonstrations are the best way to survey the target environment and gather information that would help us decide the best machine for the situation and machine operatives.
Demonstrating Micro Scrubber Dryers at a Telephone Exchange
It was clear that space inside the equipment room would be tight and that smaller Micro Scrubber Dryers that offer performance and increased manoeuvrability would be most the suitable.
For the demonstration we decided to take along three different machines; a Duplex 340 Mains Scrubber Dryer, a Motor Scrubber MS2000 and a battery powered AS380B from Viper Cleaning. All the machines we demonstrated were brand new.
The equipment room cleaning demonstration went well, and they were pleased with the performance of all the machines and could see the advantage of each one. So much so they decided the best solution would be to purchase all three machines. We are able to provide cleaning machines on short-term and long-term hire, lease purchase and of course outright purchase which was the preferred method on this occasion.
As the machines were brand new, they came with twelve months parts and labour warranty. At A3 Machines we also provide servicing and repairs to cleaning equipment so if BT have any issues one of our engineers, will be on hand to resolve them very quickly.
The Duplex 340 Mains Powered Micro Scrubber Dryer
The Duplex 340 Floor and Carpet Cleaning Machine is the perfect choice for cleaning countless floor types. These include carpets, tiles, wood, vinyl, safety flooring, non-slip flooring, entrance matting, Polysafe, Timbersafe, Marley, Flotex, Altro, Tarkett and many more.
With a cleaning width of 340 mm (13″), the Duplex 340 Standard Floor Cleaning Machine cleans, scrubs and picks up dirty water and grime leaving floors clean and dry in a very short space of time.
The Duplex 340’s twin contra-rotating brushes are offset to one side and the machine cleans in both directions by means of the bi-directional handle. This allows ‘right to the edge’ cleaning, alongside walls and into corners, alongside skirtings, under furniture and around fixtures.
