What is a Unger Swivel T Bar? The Unger Swivel T Bar is used to hold an Applicator Sleeve.
Why use the Unger Swivel T Bar? It is a well made swivel T Bar with a green plastic handle with circular grips, Aluminium Bar with black rounded plastic end caps. The bar is attached to the handle by two rivets. It will fit most telescopic poles with a push cones. It has been designed as a push fit on Unger TelePlus and OptiLoc pole systems.
Additionally the T Bar can be locked in seven different positions or swivel freely.
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 Unger Swivel T Bar is a plain T bar, not havibg any flutes.
What are the Unger product codes: SV350 for 14" 35cm and SV450 18" 45cm Part of the StripWasher range.
Which one is for me? The choice is up to you. However to help you decide you may wish to ponder on the following:
Size: Choose the size to fit the window. 35cm 14" is a popular size. Georgian windows may be best cleaned using a smaller size of Applicator (10" 25cm), while offices, shops and patio doors may require a larger size of Applicator (18" 45cm). At Window Cleaning Stuff we stock the full range of Unger Swivel 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. So we would say stick to an Unger pole with product. (The T Bar is a push fit on OptiLoc and Teleplus ranges of telescopic poles)
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 Unger Swivel T Bar does not have flutes.
Care: When you wash your sleeve, rinse the T Bar in warm water to remove any dirt and soap.
