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.
