Available in 3 sizes: RIP 20, RIP 25, RIP 31

The RIP magnetic sweeper is designed for use on all surfaces including grass. It has a unique “wrap around” design that prevents debris from being wiped off by long grass or weeds found at construction sites. The RIP is up to the task for all terrains. 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.

(all prices in USD)

 

Available in 4 sizes: 62”, 74”, 86”, 98”

With Quick Clean Off Sleeve

 

The KHAMSIN hanging magnet was designed for more “off road” applications such as gravel, sand, and dirt roads and yards, or grass covered areas. Ideal for rural roads or gravel roadsides. Ideal for gravel parking lots and driveways.

 

The Khamsin design allows you to leave the magnet permanently mounted, enabling you to lower and deploy the magnet for use when needed, and then easily raise and secure it when not needed or for transport between locations.

 

Larger 10” x 3” flat proof bump wheels keep the magnet from hitting the ground or sinking into softer ground surfaces.

 

The Khamsin has a slightly higher minimum sweeping height of 2.5” inches compared to the ISO’s minimum sweeping height of 1.75” inches, in order to operate more effectively in off road applications.

 

A Quick Clean Off Sleeve comes standard for quick and easy debris removal.

Heavy Duty Fork Mounted Magnet! With pivoting debris tray for easy debris removal.

(all prices in USD)

 

Available in 1 size: Oblast 52″

The OBLAST forklift magnet is a fork mount design that allows you to use your forklift to pick up ferrous metal debris and then lift the OBLAST over a disposal / scrap bin for easy removal by using the easy flip down pivoting stainless steel debris tray.

 

Heavy duty construction of steel and stainless, with UHMW bushings on the rotating stainless steel debris tray for long life and a solid feel.

 

Ground strike protection is provided by the angled front and rear of the stainless steel debris tray which reduces the width of the bottom flat section and therefore limits magnet contact with the ground, and prevents damage if the magnet does contact the ground because there is no hard edge to “catch” on the ground.

 

Upward clamping fork pockets provides greater contact of the fork pockets with the forklift forks and therefore provides greater stability to reduce magnet “slippage” on the forks.

 

Comes in one 52” inch magnet sweeping width, and easily mounts to forklift forks up to and including 6” inch wide forks on 24” inch fork centers. See CAD drawings for further details.

The ALPHA is the same as the AETHER magnetic sweeper but with the addition of the remote-controlled electric actuators for up and down movement.

 

Like the AETHER the ALPHA was designed for those off-road dirt and gravel situations where more ground strike prevention is needed.

 

The 10” x 3” flat proof bump wheels on the ends prevent the magnet from hitting the ground and from sinking into loose surfaces, and the wheeled outriggers provide additional ground strike prevention in the middle of the magnet’s overall length.

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.

flat-tire

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.

What Is a Construction Magnet?

The term “construction magnet” is a broad term encompassing magnetic devices used to keep construction worksites clear of any foreign ferrous metal objects that may injure employees or damage equipment. Some of the most commonly utilized are magnetic sweepers, which come in numerous variations to suit different cleanup needs. For example, push magnets are portable, while vehicle-mounted magnets (e.g., tow-behind and front-mounted magnets) are effective in large areas. Most construction magnets feature a load release mechanism, which makes it easier for users to clean off collected material during and between uses.

Types of Construction Site Magnetic Sweepers

Construction site magnetic sweepers are available in many designs and configurations, each of which offers distinct advantages and disadvantages that make it suitable for particular cleanup applications. 

Push-type magnetic sweepers are designed to be manually pushed across a surface to recover ferrous waste. They are available in a range of widths. The wider the platform, the larger the area covered with each sweep. However, narrower sweepers may be preferable in tighter locations.

Front-mounted magnetic sweepers are designed to be mounted to the front of the vehicle. They allow users to pick up ferrous debris without having to drive over it first. It is a good choice for areas with heavy layers of debris that are likely to cause punctured tires.

Hanging magnetic sweepers are designed to attach to existing vehicle or equipment structures. As a result, they are a relatively low-cost magnetic cleanup solution since you do not need to pay for handle, wheel, or frame components to use them.

Tow-behind magnetic sweepers are designed to be hitched to the back of a vehicle and pulled throughout the construction site. They are highly effective at picking up metal debris across larger areas. However, it is important to keep in mind terrain when purchasing one. Those engineered for flat surfaces are suitable for concrete or asphalt, while those engineered for all terrains can be used on-road or off-road.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Construction Site Magnetic Sweepers

Which type of magnetic sweeper is best?

The best magnetic sweeper depends on the particular cleanup requirements of the construction site. For example, a tow-behind sweeper is good for large sites, while a magnet with a rake attachment is suitable for removing metal debris from gravel and dirt. 

How strong are Bluestreak magnetic sweepers?

At Bluestreak, we indicate the strength of our magnetic sweepers in terms of maximum lifting height. We offer models that can pick up metal debris from a maximum height of 5 ¾ inches to 12 inches. Check out our article “How to Measure Magnetic Sweeper Pickup Power” to learn more about how we measure pickup power and performance.

How long do Bluestreak magnetic sweepers last?

Bluestreak magnetic sweepers come with a lifetime guarantee on magnetic strength.
