We often get asked about hiring floor cleaning machines for factory floors and retail outlets such as supermarkets so it made a refreshing change to receive a request from a client with a contract at Heathrow Airport who needed a machine to clean their aircraft hangers. Heathrow Airport is in fact the sixth busiest airport in the world by total passenger traffic and of course the busiest airport in the United Kingdom.
Aircraft Hanger Floor Cleaning
There are three main aircraft hangars at Heathrow Airport and a huge maintenance hangar which is so large it’s nicknamed the Cathedral. The hangars are vast with large areas of concrete flooring that has to be kept clean for obvious safety reasons. They can also be quite cluttered with large items of movable equipment in place during aircraft inspections and maintenance.
All things considered the floor cleaning machine had to be highly productive and manoeuvrable so the Nilfisk BR 1100 ride-on scrubber dryer with a wide scrubbing path and tight 2.1m turning circle was the obvious choice.
These are very large expensive machines that require significant capital investment so all things considered a long term hire made sense. Hiring is a flexible solution that’s ideal for contract cleaning companies as it ensures your costs are fixed, its tax efficient and A3 agreements include servicing and maintenance so you will never be faced with any lengthy downtime or unexpected costs.

The cylindrical model has the added benefit of being fitted with side brooms that can sweep away loose debris.
The squeegee system provides nearly 100% water pick-up on tight turns, leaving the floors clean, dry and safe for traffic.

Together with the large scrub deck, EDS, 265 litre solution and recovery tanks and a top working speed of 9 km/h makes the Nilfisk BR 1000 the ideal machine for cleaning large hard floor areas.
