In an effort to simplify Ionic’s waterfed pole range, we have launched a new lightweight but strong pole platform that window cleaners can configure based upon their specific needs. Therefore just like the mythical Greek serpent Ionic’s new HydraTM pole is available with a number of familiar head options, including the Hydra Swift Head. The Hydra Swift Head is extremely robust and optimised for commercial window cleaning. Available with 12”, 18” or 24” brushes and has a variety of gooseneck length options.
When you pick up the new HydraTM pole the first thing you notice is just how light it is. Ionic has really focused on weight reduction and have reduced the wall thickness of every pole section, resulting in significant weight savings, and maintained rigidity. Narrower handles provide a more comfortable grip.
In order to achieve our lightest ever pole, every component came under scrutiny with weight savings being made on nearly every part, from clamps to levers.
The second thing you notice are the new clamps on the HydraTM pole, with slick one finger operation and adjustment these clamps feature patent pending spring assisted release to reduce tube section wear. In addition, the clamps are carefully crafted to ensure tight closure time after time year after year. Any used Ionic pole can be upgraded to have these latest clamps. Check out the pole restoration video on the videos page.
The final thing you notice is that every HydraTM pole comes standard with Ionic’s unique Protector handle. The only waterfed pole to meet the British Standard for electrical safety is now available to you at no extra cost. It seems that there is barely a month that goes by without news of a window cleaner electrocuted at work. Whilst safer than ladders Ionic believe that waterfed poles should be a no-risk alternative.
