WHAT IS THE FOD*BOSS ?

The FOD*BOSS® is a patented airport sweeper designed specifically for collecting FOD at high speed and with incredible efficiency.

The FOD*BOSS® is towed by a vehicle at up to 50 km/h, 30mph, driven by a single operator. No special skills or licence required.

NO MOTOR

There is no motor, vacuum suction engine or moving parts which makes it very affordable and virtually maintenance free.

The FOD*BOSS® is equally efficient in wet or dry conditions and can be used on asphalt, concrete, smooth of fine-grooved surfaces.

ROWS OF SCOOPS MADE OF SPECIALLY FORMULATED AEROTHANE ™

The principle of operation of the FOD*BOSS® is based on rows of scoops made of specially formulated Aerothane™ that collect the FOD. In front of each row of scoops are tough, long-wearing brushes whose fibres activate the FOD by friction and ease its capture by the scoops. This feature is especially important to pick-up flat objects such as washers or luggage tags.

The design of the scoops is such that they will adjust with wear, keeping a blade shape and ensuring constant FOD collection.

After being picked-up by the scoops, the FOD is kept on the upper surface of the mat and entrapped by a retaining mesh.

EASILY EMPTIED

Whenever the FOD*BOSS® has picked-up a heavy load of FOD, it will be easily emptied by simply raising its trailing end and shacking out the collected debris.

The retaining mesh is attached by means of Velcro® straps ; this enables easy removal to proceed with thorough emptying at the end of the sweeping run.

EASY TO TRANSPORT

After use, the FOD*BOSS® is rolled up and put in its transport and storage bag which includes rollers for easy single-person manoeuvring.

This feature makes it particularly easy to transport on site in case of rapid intervention required on a FOD spill spot.
