Window Cleaning Surrey
Why is Gardiner pole systems one of the most popular water fed pole manufacturers in the UK? Should you buy from Gardiner pole system Ltd? In our opinion we have used Gardiner for water fed pole systems for over a decade now. Jarvis Clean have never had a problem with Gardiner window cleaning in Surrey so why change? We realise there are other really good water fed pole manufacturers in our industry and that everyone has a personal preference. There are other manufacturers that you can use like Streamline, Reach-iT, ionic and facelift.
Gardiner Pole System Ltd (Background)
Window cleaning magazine interviewed Alex Gardiner about his company and posted the script of that conversation and you can find that here: Interview with Alex Gardiner.
Taking over a family window cleaning business that started in 1980 the Gardiner’s had a number of commercial cleaning contracts which they started to use the water fed pole system in 2000. The Gardiner’s were one of the first firms to clean windows with the water fed pole system in the south west of England.
Alex Gardiner started to make micro bore hose and flow valves in 2004 because of a lack of availability from suppliers. By 2005 they started casually supplying hose and fittings to other window cleaners locally.
Gardiner Pole System (Philosophy)
In the interview with window cleaning magazine Alex said this: “Our philosophy was to be able to supply good quality products at affordable prices for the average window cleaner”
The Gardiner’s started making lightweight (comparing to the 9kg poles they were using back then!) carbon fibre poles in 2006. And in 2007 the first prototype SLX Pole was made.
Gardiner Pole System - Popular
Out of 85 window cleaners in the UK, 70 would say Gardiner are their go to manufacturers for water fed poles.
The Gardiner pole system brand has been very successful in the UK. They were in the right place at the right time and saw a need to our window cleaning industry. They did not try to just make money from the need but tried to help others and they own window cleaning business. Gardiner pole systems are a manufacture for window cleaners by window cleaners. They philosophy is simple, to supply good quality products at reasonable prices for the average window cleaner and they have stayed with that philosophy.
We use Gardiner for our commercial and domestic window cleaning service in Surrey and would recommend it. Of course there are other manufacturers out there and we all have a personal preference to what manufacturers we will buy from.
