Want to know more about the RobotZoo Glider?
The robotic window cleaner is relatively new. They have been around for only a few years, but already there are some exciting new variants coming out. The RobotZoo glider, which appears to ‘glide’ across the surface, is one of the newer types. And the RobotZoo Gecko, which appears to ‘walk’ across the window surface, is one of the original types. The RobotZoo Glider is about twice as big and twice as fast as the RobotZoo Gecko.
What’s so special about the RobotZoo Glider window cleaner?
The RobotZoo Glider window cleaner is a serious robotic window cleaner that’s evolved to take on the big jobs. This is the most capable of RobotZoo’s robotic window cleaners. Being about 30 cm square, the RobotZoo Glider cleans twice the surface area of any glass window in the same time as RobotZoo Gecko.
The RobotZoo Glider window cleaner comes with an Australian compliant power supply. Accessories and consumables from the RobotZoo homesite. Robot Zoo provides a 12 month BotCare warranty for the RobotZoo Glider. And there’s benefits of being a RobotZooMember for anyone who takes one home.
What do you need to know about safety?
Robotic window cleaners are generally safe to run, when they’re used properly. They connect to mains power, so should always be used in a dry environment, never in wet conditions.
It’s hard to hurt yourself using a robotic window cleaner, because the devices operate at low power and speeds. Unless one falls on you. But there’s a safety rope to help prevent that.
The AC Adapter is all important. It must comply with Australian standards, carry the RCM mark, and include the standard Australian wall plug. RobotZoo is very careful about these points. Heavy fines and jail sentences apply to anyone selling electrical equipment in Australia that is non-compliant with Australian electrical safety standards. And so they should.
Many suppliers, particularly on Ebay, Amazon or Alibaba will ignore these points, either wilfully or out of ignorance. Especially those overseas suppliers selling online who are out of reach of Australian law. There is no protection for Australian consumers who try to save a few dollars buying from these overseas suppliers. So buyers beware!
If the window cleaner is being used on external windows high up, there is a remote possibility that it could fall and hit someone below. That’s why all RobotZoo window cleaners have a safety rope with a metal carabiner clip to attach them to something fixed. If the device falls off, the safety rope should prevent any damage being done.
