The STREAMLINE® OVA-8 carbon fiber telescopic poles are designed in an ‘oval’ profile section, reducing the wear of the sections from the pole clamps.
Pole stress – When designing an anti-rotational oval shaped pole, it was discovered that an additional feature was provided – stiffness. The two flat sides of the OVA-8 telescopic pole add more stability and therefore more control for the operator, a huge “safety” plus. Any experienced operative will tell you how dangerous and annoying a spinning pole section is. These flat sides will cancel out that “whipping effect” either from moving a pole at height from one window to another or ‘bouncing off the glass’ motions. Operators will be more productive and work safer – both for themselves and others around them.
Hand ergonomics – Holding any item in the hand for long periods can be painful. The OVA-8 design combines two flat sides. These sit more comfortably in an operator’s hand and allow the tips of their fingers to sit on the flat edge.
It’s been found that handling an OVA-8 pole requires less grip to control the pole, either from pushing it up and down or from firmly holding the base section to move the pole to the next window.
Anti rotational pole sections – Our no.1 goal. Arriving at the final oval shape wasn’t easy, as many other shapes had failed (round, square, hexagon, octagon, lobe) in one area of design or another, so designing the right shape had to provide more than one feature of anti-spin. Eliminating the rotational spin of the pole section around the clamp area results in less wear of the pole material. Also, because of the anti-spin pole section, our OVA-8 oval clamps work less due to only having to prevent the pole sections from moving up or down.
