Speed Squeegy® Floor Squeegees Features and Benefits
Squeegee Buying Guide: How to choose the correct Speed Squeegy® squeegee for your application or floor surface
There are three categories of squeegees: squeegee head; squeegee refill blade; and Speed Squeegy® Speedy Pak™. The squeegee heads are available with either an EDPM or moss rubber blade set into an aluminum, plastic, or steel frame that can be either straight or curved and comes in sizes of 18", 24", 30", or 36". The heads require either a 3/8" stud or Hysweep™ handle. The heads and handles are attached via a standard, Flip-Flop®, or compression collar. The squeegee construction allows them to be used for fine duty, light duty, average duty, medium duty or heavy duty.
A squeegee is a tool with a flat, smooth rubber blade, used to remove or control the flow of liquid on a flat surface. It is used for cleaning and in printing. The earliest written references to squeegees date from the mid-19th century and concern deck-cleaning tools, some with leather rather than rubber blades. The name "squeegee" may come from the word "squeege", meaning press or squeeze, which was first recorded in 1783. The closely related "squeedging" was reportedly first used in 1782, in the Covent Garden Theatre, during the performing of the comedy Which is the Man? by Hannah Cowley.
