Vikan has introduced a colour coded hygienic one piece handle for their brushes, squeegees and scrapers.

Constructed from food grade, reinforced and recyclable polypropylene, the one piece handle ensures effective and thorough cleaning down through the broom and squeegee heads.   

It is 34mm in diameter and 6% lighter than existing fibre glass handles and is FDA and EU compliant.

The handle can be used in cold stores and meat production/processing plants. 

The one piece design minimises any risk of parts falling off during use and eliminates any risk of contamination entering the handle via gaps and edges.

Vikan's handle is supplied in nine colour coded colours for visual segregation. It is available in three different lengths: 1300 mm, 1500 mm and 1700 mm.
