Linatex squeegee on tiled floor


Performance + Productivity = Profit

Better cleaning performance means less rework—and lower labor costs, reduced risk of safety claims, and lower costs for maintenance and parts. That’s why we recommend Linatex® squeegees and skirts for use with your floor scrubbers.

Linatex® contains more natural latex than most rubber squeegees. A specialty rubber made through a unique manufacturing process, Linatex® is specifically designed for wet abrasion environments. It holds its shape well, and resists edge wear and tearing. It conforms well to rough or uneven surfaces, improving water pick-up.

Floor care accounts for 40% of custodians’ time.

Water left by a floor cleaning machine can contain soils, debris, and soap residue. That creates a hazard for anyone who uses the floor. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, slip-and-fall accidents cost billions of dollars each year in medical expenses, insurance payments and lost productivity. A cleaner floor is safer, brighter, and more pleasant to use.
