The Fusselschreck-Principle

Why curved bristles are of advantage?

First of all, does “Fusselschreck” has a special meaning? Yes, it does. But a translation from German is not exactly possible – “Fusselschreck” is a made-up word. The best thing to remember is, that our brooms and brushes frighten all kinds of dirt – that´s what “Fusselschreck” expresses.

 

The Fusselschreck-Principle stands for curved bristles.

And what stands behind the curved bristles is nothing special, just simple physics.

In the two pictures below, this can be depicted in a descriptive way:

While brushing or sweeping with products having ordinary, straight bristles, the bristles are bending backwards and just slipping over the surface.

By comparison, while brushing or sweeping with products having curved bristles, the ends of the bristles touch the surface upright and therefore have a much higher cleaning effect.

 

The substantial advantages are furthermore a higher impact on surfaces that are difficult to clean as well as a shorter time required until the work is done.

The curved bristles also clean edges, corners and grooves better than conventional brooms and brushes.

All our brooms and brushes function by the Fusselschreck-Principle.
