Gray mat­ter An­thro­polo­gie’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with award-win­ning Welsh de­signer Bosch GlassVac

The Herald Magazine - - etc EVA ARRIGHI HOME -

Good points?

A nifty cord­less vac­uum cleaner for use on glass and other sur­faces such as tiles and mir­rors.

De­sign has been well thought out as the na­ture of this prod­uct means that it will be held at shoul­der height or above so it’s im­por­tant to min­imise weight and bulk. The unit is 20 cen­time­tres (eight inches) in length and weighs 0.7kg (1.5lb) so is cer­tainly man­age­able when mov­ing from room to room with its 30-minute run­time.

The GlassVac fea­tures Bosch’s in­no­va­tive au­to­mo­tive wiper-blade tech­nol­ogy which glides ef­fort­lessly across sur­faces due to a polymer coat­ing that re­duces fric­tion. A fo­cused con­tact of this type elim­i­nates streaks and squeak­ing noise while aid­ing clean­ing, which works well even on curved sur­faces such as car wind­screens.

All vac­u­ums live or die by their suc­tion power and this de­vice lacks lit­tle in this de­part­ment. Some glass suck­ers fail around sur­face edges but the GlassVac gathers up ev­ery last drop so there are no an­noy­ing drips and smears to ruin the fin­ish. A sat­u­rated mar­ket of­ten forces man­u­fac­tur­ers to of­fer more and Bosch has duly obliged with a plethora of at­tach­ments that can clean, suck and pol­ish most in­te­rior and ex­te­rior tiles, glass and mir­rors. This ver­sa­til­ity ex­tends to re­mov­ing spillages of up to 250ml.

There is lit­tle to gripe about as it does what it says on the tin.

Those who like sur­faces to sparkle in­doors and out­doors.

You have el­e­vated or high win­dows as this de­vice is purely hand­held and can’t be ex­tended.
