Clean up metal debris on construction sites faster, easier..

Clean up metal debris from construction sites using a magnetic sweeper.

Magnetic sweepers pick up metal debris faster and easier...

Magnetic Sweepers are used on construction sites for picking up metal debris. They help reduce flat tires and human injuries caused by metal debris. They pick up wire, nails, screws, scrap metal, bolts, etc. faster and easier than other methods.

Construction sites have all kinds of debris sources and overall debris is considered moderate to high and the need for control is also moderate to high because of the potential for flat tires and injuries.

Why pick up metal debris?

It’s true most contractors don’t care about metal debris such as wire, nails, screws, scrap metal, bolts, etc. as long it’s not causing them too many flats especially if there isn’t any obligation to clean up the site in the contract. Many contractors don’t want to spend the time and money to clean up a site during or after construction, because it takes time and money.

But some contractors do try and keep construction site debris confined to the site first of all. They also do some preventative sweeping knowing that if it prevents one flat tire their efforts are worth it in terms of reduced costs and avoided delays or downtime. They also know that keeping a clean site, and keeping good relations in the area is not only in their interest but more importantly it also means that the client has a good impression of the contractor and in the end it leads to satisfied customers and future referrals.

This may seem like common sense. If you go to a construction site and it’s a total disaster, your confidence that other things are done right comes into question. If you go to a construction site that is kept clean and orderly, and if you see a contractor keeping the debris contained to the site, and cleaned up to protect the workers and equipment, we all think that if the contractor is doing these things, they must be doing a lot of the little things right as well, and it would be true usually.

Quick Tip #1

What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of Construction Site Magnets?

Seriously consider a Debris Digging Rake accessory for a tow behind sweeper. It digs up and loosens metal debris so the magnet can pick it up easier and it grooms and levels dirt areas at the same time and you can easily see where you've swept.

Ready to handle any construction site.

The RIP magnetic sweeper is designed for use on all surfaces including grass.

The seven wheel height settings allow you to fine tune the sweeping height to ensure maximum performance in any construction situation.

The angled front nose makes it just that much easier to push through grass, all the pivot points have nylon flange bushings so there is no metal on metal contact, meaning no squeaks, long life, and a nice tight feel to the tool. And the feature that is used the most, the handle, was specifically made three pieces to give the handle sturdiness and durability and also contributes to the tight feel of the sweeper unlike many single piece handle designs on the market.
