The start of something new...

What has been the biggest technological advance of your lifetime?
I bet I can guess... Computers.. and in particular, the PC.

Introducing the biggest advance in window cleaning to date, the Wagtail PC (pivot control).

To recap, I would like to round off a few of the benefits that Wagtail users have experienced through the introduction of the pivoting squeegee.
  • Faster than any other squeegee on the market
  • Further reach then ever before 
  • Excellent accuracy on extension poles 
  • Uses less arm strain thus decreasing the risk of RSI
 The new wagtail PC places the control disc above the squeegee, allowing for the force vectors of the squeegee to be placed at their most optimal position. It has adjustable pivot ranges to clean at your desired angle. The nylon collet reducing the pivot bearing resistance and the controlled pivot can prevent any wayward pivoting at extreme heights. These are just a few of the benefits you will experience with the PC.

Pre orders are available for the Wagtail squeegee network members. Feedback is always welcome so let us know how you find the new product. And remember, its not clean until its Wagtail clean!

Erkenomic poles a goal!

Introducing the Erkenomic pole tip. This latest tool from the ever growing Wagtail factory delivers advantages no other pole tip can give. Notice the angle? 
The Erkenomic pole tip is a compound angle that gives a mechanical advantage when turning a squeegee reducing stress on the body when cleaning at a height. Opening up a world of possibilities, the pole tip can reach further, deeper ledges than not ever though reachable. 


Ever been on the job site, placed your pole against the wall, turned around and before you know it the pole has slipped and knocked over a fragile object. The pole tip creates a simple solution that for some reason was not introduced eons ago. Notice the flat section resting against the brick wall giving the pole stability when your reaching for another tool. Problem solved!

 By now we have all realised that Wagtail tools are designed to create ease of use whilst cleaning with a major focus on being speed and accuracy. The pole that fits into the tip is controlled from the base reducing the time needed to clean as the height can be changed constantly without the squeegee ever leaving the surface of the window.

Hope you guys enjoy this new product. Coming very soon to the Wagtail website. Pre-orders are available. We would love to hear some feedback so get back to us with your reviews!

Welcome to Wagtail!

Hi fellow Wagtail friends,

Welcome to our blog which will be updated weekly with all things wagtail including videos, helpful hints, tips and reviews on certain products.

We are going to kick off the first post with a few factors on what we believe distinguishes wagtail cleaning tools against conventional window cleaning tools.

Problem at hand – Cleaning windows up high.

Solution- Whirlwind, Flipper, Combi.

When cleaning hot glass, speed is important as the window will dry quickly, this is where the wagtail tools come into their element. The Wagtail flipper, whirlwind and combi allows you to wash and squeegee with the one tool halving the time needed to clean the window. As the wagtail products are the only squeegees with a microfiber pad attached, they not only wash and collect dirt, they provide water to lubricate and prevent windows from drying before the squeegee process.

Control of the squeegee on a pole is of upmost importance and the pivot action on wagtails gives superior control compared to conventional squeegees. The Wagtail allows you to reach deep ledges, unreachable windows, odd shaped windows, curved glass and angled windows with complete accuracy.

The problem with standard squeegees is that they only allow the operator to squeegee straight down a window or go from one side to the other side stopping to change angle and direction of the squeegee. The wagtail proves its superiority in this area as it allows a continuous action from side to side all the way down a window without stopping.

We hope you enjoyed this first post on a few benefits of Wagtail products. Please continue to follow our weekly blogs to keep up to date with everything Wagtail. And remember, it’s not clean till its Wagtail clean!
