What is a Unger ALU T Bar? A T Bar is used to hold an applicator sleeve, which is used to apply the detergent to the windows.
Why use the Unger ALU T Bar? It is a well made fixed T Bar with a green plastic handle with circular grips, Aluminium Bar with black rounded plastic end caps. The bar is held in place a single screw within the handle.
It will fit most telescopic poles with a push cones. It has been designed to fit poles that use the ErgoTec end cone (as used on Unger TelePlus and OptiLoc pole systems) which provides positive locking of the T Bar to the pole, stopping tools falling on peoples heads!
Are all T Bars the same? Yes and No! The simple answer is Yes - they all hold a sleeve. However there is a variety of designs which means that they are not all the same. For example; some swivel while others are fixed, some are lockable in a position where as most are not, some are plastic with flutes or indents to help hold the water while others are metal and plain. The ALU T Bar is a fixed T Bar which does not have flutes or indents.

Which Unger ALU T Bar is the one is for me? The choice is up to you. However to help you decide you may wish to consider the following:
Size: Choose the size to fit the window. 35cm 14" is a popular size. Georgian windows (6" 15cm) may be best cleaned using a smaller size, while offices, shops and patio doors may require a larger size (18" 45cm or 22" 55cm). At Window Cleaning Stuff we stock the full range of ALU T Bars.
Hand Held or Telescopic Pole: If you are using the T Bar by hand then choose a T Bar with a good grip.
If you going to attach the T Bar to a pole then choosing a swivel T Bar can make applying the detergent to the window easier. To avoid any compatibility issues buy the same make of T Bar and telescopic pole .
Which Sleeve? Choose the same size sleeve as the T Bar you have. All makes of sleeve fit standard T Bars.
Fluted or Plain? The idea is that fluted or indented T Bars hold more water. However in most cases the choice of Sleeve determines how much water is held. Many window cleaners accept that Microfiber sleeves will hold the most water irrespective of the T Bar design. The ALU T Bar does not have flutes or indents.
Care: When you wash your sleeve, rinse the T Bar in warm water to remove any dirt and soap.
