KP WIRE GUTTER BROOMS
The most frequently asked question we get when we introduce one of our customers to a KP (Keystone Patented) Wire Gutter Broom is, “Why Patented Wire?”
And the typical customer response after testing a Keystone Patented Wire Gutter Broom has been that Keystone’s Patented Wire Gutter Broom has met or exceeded their expectations, on even the toughest street sweeping applications.
A major concern in manufacturing steel is the loss of strength properties through the production process that can cause the steel to prematurely break-down, weaken or fail. However, in the patenting process, steel wire is gradually heated and then cooled in a controlled environment allowing it to be flattened, or cold rolled, without sacrificing the key characteristic of the steel – strength.
Apply this technology to gutter brooms where strength and durability of the product are the user’s main concerns, and you can begin to understand the benefits of Patented Wire. This includes the steel’s resistance to bending and stretching (hardness), resistance to fatigue from repeated stress, flick strength and ability to maintain its original shape.
