TennantTrue® Brush Selection Guide
Ensure ideal operation of your machine and its scrubbing and sweeping brushes by choosing a TennantTrue Brush that has been ideally designed for your machine’s down pressure, speed and water flow — as well as your cleaning environment needs. Other manufacturers may say their brushes “will fit” Tennant machines, but they cannot promise the same quality, fit and performance as TennantTrue Brushes.
Look for disk brushes with debris and grit flushing drain holes to protect the drive plug and disk brush bristles set nearly perpendicular to the cleaning surface for more effective cleaning. TennantTrue® Disk Brushes let cleaning solution flow through holes in the machine drive plug and brush drive adapter, so it spreads across the working surface of the brush.
Ensure smooth operation and prevent excessive machine wear with balanced TennantTrue® Cylinder Brushes — manufactured to the industry’s tightest standards for straightness, roundness, wall thickness and fit. Tennant manufacturers cylindrical brush tubes with an extruded spline drive for the best fit, using maximum bristle length for long wear and securely anchors every bristle. Look for patented TennantTrue® sweeping brush designs: sand wedge and window brush.
Reach into corners and around edges, pulling debris in front of the sweeper for pick up by the main brush, using round, flared TennantTrue® side brushes. Tennant uses a specific flare angle that provides maximum reach without compromising stiffness.
