Get to Know Our Brooms

Gutter Brooms

Gutter Brooms sweep debris inward so the Tube Broom and / or pick-up head can pick up debris easier. Gutter brooms should be replaced when the bristles are down to about 6 inches. They are available in medium or heavy weights with Oil Tempered or Blue Steel bristles to meet user preference.

Tube Brooms

Tube Brooms use a flicking action to sweep debris into the body of the sweeper. They should be replaced when the bristles are about 7 inches. They are easily replaced with Strips or Wafers by swapping it with an appropriate mandrel.

Strip Brooms

Strip Brooms are a convenient alternative to Tube Brooms. Strips are broom segments that slide into the mandrel making replacement easy for a single person. they take up less space, take less time to install, could outperform your cumbersome tube brooms, and are 100% recyclable.


Wafers are another convenient alternative to Tube Brooms. They come in circular sections (instead of strips) that slide onto the mandrel. Our convoluted wafers don’t even require spacers!
