Premium Power Sweeping Range
These are the Wakefield premium polypropylene rods with the high quality supremely engineered push button power sweeping connector. These connectors have a greater thickness and a superior click when put together. The thickness of the connector gives extreme strength and bearing surface to ensure a strong connection and a greater bearing surface during operation.
These rods come in 3/4 and 7/8th inch thicknesses making them ideal for power sweeping of open fire flues and larger ingle-nook flues. Adaptors are available to enable them to be used for traditional sweeping with the Wakefield range of brushes. The connector is the same size and type as the solid nylon rods below enabling them to be combined where required.
Solid Nylon Rods
With the same connectors described above these rods come in both 12mm and 15mm diameters and are flexible enough to be used to power sweep liners of all types. These are very flexible but strong rods which can be used in liners as small as 125mm in diameter while having the power to remove the most stubborn of deposits.
Even the drill adaptor has been engineered with a series of flats to give a superior grip in the chuck of the drill.
The solid metal centre to these power sweeping heads give an instant impression of quality and engineering.
The head has the ability to have additional sections added to make an even more powerful cleaning tool.
The whip lines are heavy duty and replaceable. The head can be taken apart to make the replacement easier and the engineering screw is external to ensure loosening and tightening are easy to do.
All the power sweep heads have a fully machined metal top which has a large radius dome section to ensure neither the head or the liner/chimney is damaged while the head passes up through the flue.
These come in two sizes;
14 inch – this has two layers of whip line as the standard of two different diameters giving a total of 16 whip lines.
26 inch – this has three layers of whip line in two different diameters to ensure that all surfaces of the flue are cleaned whether it is round or square and giving a total of 24 whip lines.
These are available In POWER SWEEPING SETS, one is a flue liner power sweeping set and the other contains all the power sweeping equipment needed to sweep liners and larger masonry or clay lined flues.

This head has the same engineering excellence as the bullet brushes above but this time has a set of chains to add power.
