The mosquito is a very
useful tool to increase the efficiency of the finishing process for an
industrial floor. This is because it reduces the amount of time consuming hand
finishing required around the edges of the floor space. The only parts of the
floor the blades of a mosquito can’t reach are corners, which still have to be
finished by hand.
The reason it is so useful
for finishing the surface close to obstructions is its purpose-designed guard,
which has the following features:
- It only extends a few
millimetres beyond the end of the blades, meaning that the blades will work the
surface as close to the obstruction as possible.
- It rotates freely, meaning that it can stay in contact with the surface
of the obstruction whilst moving along it. This allows the blades to work the
surface even closer to the obstruction and not wall upon which it rests.
