Our most popular cables are the 7mm dia (for example 10 meters art nr 3020 010) - 6mm dia (for example 5meters art nr 3019 005) - 3,8mm dia.(for example 8meters art nr 3012 008)
With these cables You can clean short and long lengths of ducts fom the smallest to the largest dimensions.

The properties of our cables reflect their intended uses:

The 7mm dia(3020 XXX) : Used in ducts from 200mm upwards.
This cable is the most widely used of the three types and covers most duct types and sizes whether circular, square or rectangular and whether straight or with bends.
In respect of rectangular ducts please also see notes on the 3,8mm cable.

The 6mm dia(3019 XXX): Used in ducts p to 200mm
This cable is more supple than the 7mm an thus more suitable for use in smaller ducts with bends.

The 3,8mm dia(3012 XXX): Used in larger rectangular ducts. This single steel-strand cable is lighter and more rigid than the 7mm and therefore gives better control in larger rectangular ducts, where clockwise / anti-clockwise roation is required in order to clean the whole width of the duct. On the other hand,it should not be used in ducts with (sharp) bends. Also used in big-dimension circular ducts, where the (lesser) weight of this cable makes ite relatively more easy to keep big brushes centred in the duct.

How to get the most out of your cables:

1. Always use the correct cable for the size/type of duct. If in doubt see above or consult us.

2. Always us the the correct size/type of brush and change brush when the duct size/type changes. 

3. When inserting a cable into the duct, make sure it is well positioned in the direction of the duct and that it works effortlessly. If any problem is experienced stop the brushing immediately.
