SRT

Betco is Better: Scuff Resistant Technology (SRT)

We took on the competition in our latest study to find which products provide the best resistance to black heel marks (BHMs). Using side-by-side industry specific test methods, white tiles were subjected to repeated impacts from numerous black heels. The results were analyzed and reported as a percent of BHM’s. The results above tell all. Not only do Betco products with SRT exhibit less BHM’s, it is also easier to remove the ones that do appear. The best choice is Betco SRT every time.

Stealth 20 Update News Cover Photo

New Improvements to Stealth ™ 20

We have made some exciting new improvements to the Betco® Stealth ASD20 walk-behind automatic scrubber. We’ve listened to your feedback and made innovative changes to make your floor care experience easier and better than ever— at no added cost!

A completely revised squeegee assembly and 4-sided blades provide for higher usage and a more powerful clean. Improved ergonomic features like the clam shell-style handlebar means easier maneuverability. Under the handlebar, operators can now find a quick and easy access point to machine components for maintenance.

Adding two casters at the rear of the Stealth ASD20, instead of just one, has improved the stability of the machine two-fold without compromising handling or performance.

An all new updated three lug pad driver provides a firm lock that is easy to remove when you need to. The new auto-release mechanism, located on the dashboard, now makes pad storage, cleaning and replacement as easy as the touch of a button.

A more sophisticated battery discharge indicator now reads battery voltage and provides more programming features for easier use and monitoring.

Increased endurance of your machine is important to us. An all-new cast aluminum deck provides superior durability and ensures your machine will withstand the test of time.

Trying to save on energy costs? The all-new Eco Mode saves on energy and provides quiet performance. Eco Mode will empower you by allowing for Stealth Day Cleaning.

Sanibet Burgundy Tip Blog

Sanibet … Pass Along The Savings

The Sanibet ™ Multi-Range Sanitizer high flow dilution is now 1:512 which equates to 200 ppm quat. Previously, an external metering tip was needed to achieve this dilution which required periodic replacement to maintain performance. Although there will be an increase in case price,  end use cost for high flow applications will decrease by 43%!  In addition, no maintenance will be required to replace metering tips, insuring worry-free operation.  The new inserts are now Red (previously Tan). Over the next 6 months you will notice a paper insert inside each case of product denoting the change. Log in to Customer Central or contact Customer Service @ 888-462-3826 for updated pricing.
