This 300mm (12Inch) head is designed to fit onto the ButtonLok (Button lock) rod system, to allow you to do the day to day cleaning of the smaller flues seemingly effortlessly, yet producing one of the cleanest results possible. The design has a unique feature in that it can fit through a narrow gap such as bolted in throat-plates and dampers, which have been fitted in stoves and flues sometimes without sweeping access points. It also can fit through most firebox openings without the need to remove the plate. This excellent Whip/brush has been designed to clean flues from 100mm to 200mm (4 to 8 Inches).
The whip heads contain nylon which aid the sweeping of chimneys cleanly. They are six sided strands which generate flat sides to enhance the cleaning process. As the whips can turn clockwise and anti-clockwise they are able to cover small chimneys with ease.
The nylon strands are very simple to replace, so the whips can be used for years to come which makes them far more cost effective then there tradition brush equivalents.
Further more you only require a few whip ends to cover most of your day to day cleaning needs saving you both space and time in choosing the right brush for the job. You no longer need to carry the vast range of brushes that are required by the old fashioned hand sweeping method. They also have the advantage of being able to expand to fit the chimney through centrifugal force which ensures the head staying centralised to the flue and gives a far larger field of contact then the old brush system it replaces. The speed of the drill determines the force generated to clean the chimney. It is always advised to use low speeds in pre 1966 chimneys, and to always use battery power tools to safe guard yourself.
