The Gladiator


Gum is a blight that has historically proven difficult to get rid of. Traditional methods of removal are inadequate for large quantities and jet washing undermines the integrity of the surface.  The Gladiator uniquely uses a combination of steam, brushes and non-toxic vegetable extract.  The result is large scale gum removal in a single pass and a deep clean. The Gladiator effectively reinstates the original intended finish of any surface. Customers of this machine include Oxford Council, Kensington & Chelsea and a number of UK airports.
