Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Bluff Manufacturing, an innovative leader in the fabrication and design of high quality material handling, dock and warehouse equipment, storage structures, and safety barriers, has expanded its portfolio by obtaining the exclusive manufacturing and distribution rights to the DuraSweeper, a patented vehicle rooftop snow removal machine.
The DuraSweeper was developed by a retired police officer who had investigated a fatal traffic accident resulting from snow flying off the roof of a truck. He researched the models on the market and built a better product that can be used on a variety of vehicles including, buses, box vans, trailers and more importantly will not cause damage to those vehicles. With many of the eastern states imposing fines and requiring commercial vehicles to clear rooftops before travel, the DuraSweeper will ensure safe roads and on time delivery.
“We are very excited about adding the DuraSweeper to our line,” says Andrea Curreri, President of Bluff Manufacturing, “The unit fits in with our mission of solving problems and increasing safety and efficiency.”
The DuraSweeper’s unique state-of-the-art technology allows for the removal of snow from rooftops of vehicles without damaging the integrity surface of the roof. The DuraSweeper utilizes a thirty-two inch poly wafer brush that is mounted on an axle to two uprights and angled for more effective snow removal. The brush is raised hydraulically to a height just inches above the rooftop to just so that as the vehicle passes under the spinning brush, the DuraSweeper’s patented flicking action removes snow quickly and easily. The DuraSweeper can be used year round to clean debris from the decks of wood-based flat beds.
DuraSweeper will be distributed through a select group of Industrial Truck Distributors dedicated to a specific territory.
