A round-up of some of the latest local and international floor care category news.

Above: does this bus back make my a**e look big? Electrolux Small Appliances doesn’t think so, nor does Marketplace Media design guru, Scott Copeland, who designed the series.


Nilfisk Smart Window Vac

Who wouldn’t want clean windows in the summer, condensation-free windows in the winter and streak-free glass surfaces anytime? Shaped like a professional squeegee blade, the Nilfisk Smart comes with two blade sizes: 280mm for normal windows; and 170mm for smaller, harder to get at windows.

The Nilfisk Smart gets right to the bottom of the window sill easily, has a foam sprayer to which the microfiber cloth attaches and comes with a sample of the Nilfisk cleaning fluid. The Lithium battery gives up to 25 minutes running time and has a 2 year warranty. Available accessories include a 1.8m extension lance, replacement blades and cleaning fluid.



Electrolux Ergorapido Series 5 Handstick

Dubbed by some the iPod of the vacuum industry, the new Series 5 Ergorapido cordless stick vacuum, like its predecessors, has been created in leading fashion colours including on-trend Rose Gold, Watermelon Red, Tungsten and Chocolate brown.

A revamped design with lithium turbo power gives you longer to get the job done. The new booster power run time will give you up to 16 minutes of premium power, or for regular runtime, Series 5 Ergorapidos run for up to 45 minutes.

Like previous models, the new Series 5 Ergorapido offers 2 in 1 versatility thanks to the removable hand unit, 180° Easysteer manoeuvrability, LED lights and the BrushRollClean feature to untangle hairs and fibres from the brush with the push of a button.

Series 5 Ergorapido also comes with some new tool accessories:

  • Crevice Tool Dusting Brush which attaches to the hand unit to access hard to reach places.
  • Multi Pro Pet Tool for cleaning fabric, upholstery surfaces with its gliding wheels, comes with the Chocolate Brown Pet model.
  • Multi accessories including a long crevice extension hose and upholstery nozzle with the Watermelon Red model.
